Measure your ECT sensor voltage to determine if the ECT-2 Module will work
|Preparation - You
can use an inexpensive digital meter for this test, set to a scale for
measuring about 1 volt DC. Under the hood, locate your ECT sensor and
verify you will be able to get the meter probes into the connector and make
contact with the sensor terminals while the
cable is plugged into the sensor. You may need to use a paper clip or
other thin probe to get a good connection to the sensor wires so get that set up before starting the tests. You don't need to constantly monitor the
voltage, just get one good reading after the car is warmed up.
1. Fully warm up the engine. If starting up cold you should run it until the radiator fan turns on and back off again.
2. Note the voltage at the ECT sensor. It is OK to shut off the engine to take the measurement but be sure to turn the ignition back on and don't take too long to get your reading. If the sensor voltage is between 0.50 volts and 0.60 volts the ECT-2 module should work with the standard programming.
