  1. Success! As you have pointed out it only needed a fraction more resistance to stop each time at the park position. Thanks for the guidance guys.
  2. Not able to wire the motor as you described and have it auto park. Watched another tutorial about wiper motors and wired as per there instructions and the results are the video I posted above. I know this is a generic and hard to answer question but do you think the motor has a fault?
  3. Assuming I have it wired the way it should be I believe the park switch must be cooked. If you watch the video you see when I switch it to the off position it appears to want to stop in the park position but doesnt
  4. Will test as per your instructions tonight, really appreciate the reply.
  5. Hi all, Just at the point in my re-wire of the corolla I want to fix up the wiper motor operation. The way it has been wired didn't use the auto park feature which as you can imagine is a pain in the ass. So looking for help as to the correct way to wire it in to make use of the auto park. Wiper motor is a 5 wire motor. So far I have identified the following wires / function. Blue / Black - Low speed 12v supply Blue / Red - High speed 12v supply Black - Earth Blue / Blue - 12v+ (not sure if this is correct but is how it was wired in existing) Blue / White (un
  6. So bit of a better update for those following. Firstly, the exhaust manifold. Let me start by saying unlike just about every other build I have seen recently people seem to be chasing big HP numbers. That was never the intention of this build, I am trying to attempt to build a responsive fun daily car that I can throw around a track at a club day with mates. Not looking to win any races or smoke too many tires although it does a reasonable job of that at the moment. So the exhaust manifold. I picked up the Sinco manifold a few months ago since it was something on the list but lack of researc
  7. Intentionally overlooking the update surrounding the -an conversion for the cooling system as I have struck a problem. I am currently looking at options to get the top hose to fit in the limited space I have available. Will update this aspect of the build once it is finalized and I actually have a solution.Focus recently has been to get the intake manifold sorted, it was a custom fabricated item that was on the car when I first purchased the car. Looks good but in practice it has some issues.Firstly, there is not a single boss welded on this manifold. Instead they opted to tap the 3mm alloy to
  8. Mixed bag for this update, some good along with some bad. Looks like the original signal switch was replaced with a repo one that has had full light current passed thru it at some point in its life. No wonder this car has suffered constantly with power issues. Have finished up most of the engine harness including the coil loom. Just waiting on a few last minute supplies for the engine harness to be terminated at the firewall, install the modified radiator and make hoses then out with the engine and gearbox
  9. More wire stuff. So to make an omelette first you must break some eggs. So trials first, glad I did. I have just about completed the first section of the engine wiring. Feeling pumped. Also picked up some weld on AN fittings and top radiator return block from Taarks for the cooling system. More on this later.
  10. I have two points for power distribution since my battery is located in the boot. The first the the littelfuse distribution block which has a main bypass for the battery to starter motor and two branches which I intend to use one for my amp and the other for the fuel pump. Once the power gets to the starter it comes back from there to the second distribution point which is the eaton PDM that distributes the power up front for all the other chassis / engine functions. Once I have it all 100% pinned down I will be completing a comprehensive document that outlines each circuit as this s
  11. There is a long story behind that but I purchased it from Waytek in the USA. Problem with Waytek is they don't ship internationally as such. I had to have them deliver it to a mate of mine in Pennsylvania who had to USPS it to Tacoma for another friend of mine who does a lot of freight ex USA to air freight it here. USD it was $170 for what you see in those pics, the unit plugs and terminals. (300ish NZD) Cheapest freight option was from TTi which was around $350USD!!!!!!! which I wasnt about to pay. I had a NZ company quote it and for what I ordered less the terminals I w
  12. And today the bulkhead connector has arrived. So stoked to have this piece of gear.
  13. So update time again so this doesnt go stale. Wiring mockup done. Took exception to the placement of the IAT sensor so have fixed that. Location couldnt be any better than this. Power distribution has also arrived so now the biggest hurdle is having time to put into this. Bulkhead connector should arrive tomorrow so I can start to get the engine harness finished. Really looking forward to see it done.
  14. My car has extensive sound deadening as I wanted something a little quieter but still fun to drive. A combination of dynamat and roadkill were used but the results amazing Look forward to hearing how these other products perform.
  15. Was a cool build look forward to seeing whats next
  16. Got my label printer all sorted and some clear to go over the top. Wiring dreams coming true. That semi pro look hopefully, will be working on the front sections of wiring next.
  17. So not the most lush update but the rear wiring loom is in and the light quality is some much better. Wiring images up first. Jiffy plugs, these things are awesome. All terminated Installed. Light quality so good. Fuel catch tray, work in progress.
  18. Your presence or lack there of is felt. My question mainly revolves around power of the fuel pump and battery cable from boot to starter etc. I have a power distribution block I am going to run in the car which has a bypass for the main battery cable to run from battery box > starter. This junction has two power supplies which I was going to run one for my amp and the second for my fuel pump (probably excessive but meh) Will running a relay in the boot with signal coming from ECU to activate it cause any kind of issue?
  19. I like the teal. I am a fan of painting wheels. Have had on previous cars, green, red and now orange so can relate.
  20. Never thought of it that way @Kimjon could re purpose that once I have finished the power upgrade for when I scare myself and crap my pants. @ProZac credit where credit is due. Finished the first bit of the boot loom recently and rate what you did for HPA very highly thanks. Would love to pick your brain over a couple of other areas in the wiring side of things if your up for it.
  21. So made a wee bit more progress. Unfortunately I don't get the time I would like on this build but still. So number plate lights out for a refresh and LED treatment. Look amazing attached to the bumper, once removed and stripped down it is a different story. Actually writing under there. Next up was the boot loom. Dealing with lighting only on this loom. Tail lights, numberplate lights, hi stop, and untilize the factory earth which wasn't being used when I stripped the car :/ All ready to be terminated.
  22. Sweet baby Jesus this is some commitment. Following
  23. So not much to see here but I did manage to get all the supplies I need to complete my test wiring of the tail lights. So here is one of the finished light holders. Learned all the pitfalls of using this wire / plug / sheathing which is good because I don't want to make any mistakes on the balance of the car wiring.
  24. And so the journey begins, I have gathered most of the supplies I need to get on and do the wiring job, bearing in mind I have no automotive electrical back round or experience this should be entertaining. My experience only extends as far as fitting audio systems. So step 1, complete the High Performance Academy club level wiring course online. (I recommend this to anyone wanting to know more about the fundamentals of EFI wiring. Still a few blanks as they don't delve deep enough into other wiring systems that are basic functions in most cars. Luckily I have VERY basic needs. Not too man
