    In case anyone was wondering, our cars are "LEVEL 3" I've re-done the vacuum line diagrams from the service manuals in higher quality than is currently floating around on the internet, so I hope this helps! And if you wish to move to "LEVEL 4" and install a 3-port solenoid, this is how you would plumb it up. (Note, this will likely require a retune)

    Excellent, thanks for the feedback and confirmation. I did think that "Scaled" was the correct one to use, but it's been about 3-4 years since I looked closely at a log with coolant temperatures in it, so my memory was a little hazy! Glad however that everything seems to be spot on and working correctly :)

    Yes, the dash gauge is damped, as the engine does have a wide "normal" operating range, and it's not until it gets over this that they consider it an issue and to alert the driver by then suddenly moving the needle - you won't notice it if it slowly climbs, but you will notice it suddenly move. The standard thermostat starts opening at 82 degrees, and is fully open by 95 degrees. I'm not sure about the HI and LO, as far as I'm aware both fans are driven by a single PWM output, maybe the...

    Either "Coolant Temp" or "Coolant Temp Scaled" always seems to read high. The other one seems to read better! The fans are designed to come on slowly, and only ramp up if actual coolant temperature rises. It could be a bad temperature sensor - often when they fail though they read lower than normal (so the ECU thinks it is in "warmup" mode, and adds extra fuel, and pulls timing/boost). I've not actually looked too closely at the temperatures, nor compared them to other sensors -...

    They'll need to pull the fault codes using the flashy dash method. That's the only way to be totally sure of what the ECU thinks is wrong. You'll also need to check with them exactly what procedure they used to remove ALL the old fluid from the gearbox, and exactly what make/model of new fluid has been put in - and let us know.

    Like most forums, social media seems to have taken away most of the focus and chat. Which is a real shame, because looking back at or searching for anything is just terrible on those platforms! I've still got my Legnum, but it is currently sat away in a barn, as the rust has got to a point where it probably wouldn't pass another MOT, and I needed to commute 40 miles per day. I looked around for another car which could potentially be a replacement, if I decided to get rid of the...

    Ah, yes, that diagram is looking at the back of the cluster, not how they're sat in the car. This photo probably explains better the difference! This info was from a Dutch forum thread HOW TO: Upgrade to High Contrast Dash, and I think was more geared towards the EUDM models, not the VR-4. If you do manage to find where that wire goes, would be very interested to know, and maybe I'll get round to doing the pinout as it is for a VR-4 rather than a EUDM model.

    There also isn't a solid grey wire that goes into the engine or transmission ECU.

    I've not been able to dig out a grey wire on the original wiring diagram - but that's not to say it's not there, just without knowing what circuit it's for, it's difficult to find! However, on the below image, which comes from the guide on how to change to the High Contrast gauges, there's not a grey wire listed. Which pin is this grey wire in, and maybe then we can marry it up to one of the pins listd below, and I can find it on the original wiring diagram :)

    The answer is almost always Viamoto, and if Mike there can't help you, main dealer!

    Pin 5 is also ground, so it should be fine. Once you've purchased EvoScan, you can go to the Downloads page (once you've logged in with your username and password), and you will find a link to 2.7.0090 FINAL

    In this episode, I tackle the heater, and it gets a massive upgrade from what I had before!
