3rdgeneration well i double checked all my connections i think maybe one of the clips weren't closed enough not sure. john at j&s had me do this test where u take out the clear wire and put a new wire in and tap a 12v source to simulate knock, and i saw response.Put the clear wire in, then had a volunteer knock for me and eureka!

pitchedblack04 So what did you do that you werent doing? Because the way you decribed it with no vacuum hooked up revving and tapping that you were doing it right? Did you actually tap on the KS?
