Questions on a stand-alone 954rr motor
Ok, new guy here
I have a 2003 954rr motor with most of the harness, ecu, etc…I’m prepping it to install in a mini buggy that I’m waiting for the frame to be built. I read through threads and looked through the wiring diagram till my eyes couldn’t handle it anymore, and then some.
I think I have a handle on bypassing most of the switches and sensors that I don’t need, but I want to make sure:
Ignition – zener diode and resistor on the pink wire
Kick stand – connect the two wires together; Green and Green-White
Bank Angle Sensor – jump the Black wire with the Red-Orange wire, leave the White-Black open. I actually don’t have the front part of the harness, so I will have to jump the wires before the connector, which I’ve determined through the diagram to be a Green wire and Red-Orange wire.
Clutch Switch– jump the wires together – again, no front harness, but those go to two connectors that go to the left control…Green-Red from one, Green-White from the other…will having the clutch switch “ON” at all times rob me from any power, or put in some sort of “limp” mode? Is the clutch switch only just for starting? I’m thinking of just having a manual switch or wire it in to the start button…Any ideas?
ECGV Servo Motor – since I don’t have a gauge cluster, I won’t have any warning lights. Do I just unplug the motor and not use it? Will this put me in some sort of “limp” mode?
O2 Sensor – I will be making a custom exhaust, basically using only flange and half of the headers. Will I have to use the O2 sensor? Again, will not connecting this put me in “limp mode”?
Am I missing anything else? Will taking care of the sensors and switches above, and hooking up a battery get me started (assuming everything else is good)? I’ve built a motor stand, and will attempt at powering up and starting after changing fluids, etc…just attempt at starting, not running, as I have no radiator.
Any ideas, insight would be most appreciated. Thanks.
