Dsim Cable Freak

I have installed a jrsc, and today, i let my dad drive the car, we put gas in left, and at the light i heard this mechanical open close sound, the sound never got any louder or faster with driving, but when we stopped, i noticed my dsim cable was freaking out open closed open close as fast as it could, even while were at idle... I have had the blower on for 7000 miles and it has never done this. Anyone have any suggestions... It doesnt affect drivability, its just loud and noisy, and kinda worries me.

just unplug the DSI actuator. I think it's underneath the battery tray, or somewhere in that general area. with the JRSC on there you don't need that

Busted DSI clip. Warning though...unplugging it will give you a CEL.

get a tune, it'll run better and make more power than the "black box" tune that comes with the JRSC and you can delete the DSI function from the tune so it won't throw a CEL
