I just went out to lexurf, and after last nights downpour, was not surprised to find lots of water around the plug lead heads. I mopped the water out and  and went to start. i went to crank the engine and it died.... no lights, no power.  i took the opportunity to plug in an obd1 reader to give me a more in depth analysis, rather than just check light flashes. It gave the Ecu as having reset itself, about 2 seconds after i tried to crank the engine.
As you can imagine, this stumped me quite profoundly...till i found my current woe was the negative battery terminal. Although nice and tight, it seemed to be not tight enough. I packed the terminal and  coupled with a new block earth i installed, it appears that the ecu was constantly being reset. I got this result, by unpacking the terminal, undoing the new block earth and running up with the reader in place... It was resetting, every time i revved the engine. It was a big earth problem....which to my eternal shame, vince was pretty sure it was, and i poo pooed the idea.

Net result...turned first click of the key...and idles up nicely. Hopefully, after a 30 minute run around town, it will learn its new settings and this time keep them !

A good result was the disabling of the cold start injector, snipping at the ecu end. Im going to toggle this as per vinces advice, for those frosty mornings...but at long last, lexurf iv appears to be living up to more than i expected...i did pull a little smoker as well.  :D

As it stood last night...i was on the verge of giving lexurf away...it was frustarting the hell out of me...as of this morning, anyone goes near lexurf...i'll piss in your turn ups!  :D

The bottom line is, if you have an issue with your lexurf, vince will (indeed has) gone out of his way, reading,examining and generally pointing you in the right direction, so your handbuilt vehicle will run to its optimum.

So all i can say vince, is Thank you very much for the build, the prep and the massive amount of aftercare. This has resulted in a motor that makes me grin like a slobbering fool, (or biohazard as we like to call him).  :lol:

wahooooooooo its alive at last - great to see youve sorted the problem, cant wait to get mine back now.
i met vince and family this week for the first time and all i can say is anyone who fancies the lexus conversion is that you couldnt find a better bloke for the job.
on another note gwh - the water coming through the vents and dribbling all over your electrickery bits. i put a drip tray under mine before it went to vince. its a simple thing to do and im sure vince will take a pic and send it to you.
bit embarrasing sitting in traffic in the pissin rain backfiring and popping - only italian crap with dodgy wiring does that not lexurfs.  :D

And some wiring...I've had it all out, but I've put it away now. I was fooling the 02 sensor into thinking the cold start injector was connected.
