cutout related to wiring error

Recommended Posts

My Trooper has been cutting out when I would let up on the throttle. Just quit then run ok again. It always ran fine when I was down on the throttle, it just happened when I was letting off. Though I had a wire shorting or continunity problem that showed up when a wire shifted forward a speck when letting up. I think I may have found the problem. so far haven't found any wire related issues but did find a wiring error. I replaced the Oxygen sensors on my Trooper and in doing so had to cut the plugs off the old sensors and put them on the new sensors. One wire is a little longer then the other because it reaches to the downstream sensor. Well, I put the longer wired plug on the upstream sensor and vise-versa. It ran fine when accelerating, because both sensors saw extra oxygen so it provided extra fuel for it. But, when I let up on it, the downstream sensor which was now reading from the upstream position would see a shortage of oxygen because there is a speck of time that the engine runs rich when letting up on the throttle. I suspect that normally the sensor that is downstream, after the catylitic comverter, looks for a different fuel oxygen ratio then the upstream one. It probably doesn't care if it's running lean because it only wants to see enough oxygen to burn off any remaining fuel componets for clean emmision. If it doesn't see any oxygen during that instant of letup, I suspect that the computer cuts the fuel until it sees some oxygen. The computer would react differently to the normally upstream sensor's signal. Haven't tested the fix yet, still have some wires I want to check as long as I'm almost thru all of them and apart. Will let you know. Had I not carefully checked every wire and where they were susposed to go from each computer plug pin I could have easily not found this issue and could have been fighting it for ever. Gosh, I hate it when I make mistakes which is more often then I like to admit.

You are correct you can't have those two sensors switched the one after the cat is monitoring efficiency so it's looking for a consistent value not up down up down like your 02. What kind of o2 sensors did you use and part number?

I used a Bosch #13007 from Checkers for $89 then bought the second one, same bosch from NAPA for $74. If you have to change them, you will probably have to put the old connector on the new one. That is what I did, The 2 white wires on the new connector are the 12v heater wires. Use a meter to find the two 12 volt DC wires commng from the computer. Check this at the plug for the O2 sensor, not the one on the sensor it self. You can have the sensor unplugged for this and you must have the ignition on. Once established, cut and splice the 12v leads to the two white wires on the new sensor. Then hook the Grey to the grey and the black to the white and youir done.

After changing around the oxygen sensors it did run stronger, pulled harder. However it is still cutting out so now I'm going to look at the fuel system. It is popping a bit when it cuts out so that makes me think it gets lean. I'll be tearing into that this afternoon. I'll post what I find. Hopefully I find something.

    • 2009 Joyner trooper starting problems

      I have a no cranking issue with my joyner. It has a chery 1100. It will click but nothing after that.  New battery. I tried banging in the starter while holding key in start(old car trick). Now the  starter solenoid won't even clunk. Just hear s click fron the relay now.  My assumption is the starter needs replacing.  Any ideas of other things to check? Does anyone have diese block diagrams?  Got no clue what fuse or relay goes to what

    • Trooper 1100 Turbo Kit?

      Hey guys, so i have built my own turbo kit in house and it works awesome! seeing these turbo kits for sale for 3 and 4k seemed a little steep for me.. i built my entire kit intercooled and all for less then half of that price so i am considering selling these kits.. if i could produce a complete bolt on kit that could be installed with simple hand tools in your garage strait for $1800 and intercooled for $2500 would any of you be inerested? i would like to post pics but not sure how to? i have also snorkled my trooper and not just the air filter but diff vents, the two chrome catch cans (crankcase vent and radiator vent) along with raising the ECM and fuse boxes to head level.. this as well could be sold as a kitfor very little cost. i can also do the work in-house if needed (install all of this for you) for only a couple of hundred... is this stuff you guys would be interested in? Turbo kits will be complete al the way down to an Autometer Vac/Boost guage, fuel controller etc.... i have seen a HUGE increse in power! if you have more questions you can call me at 713-824-8891 i'm in the Houston Texas area. Also Lenny would you mind calling me so i could pic your brain for a min? some questions about this site (how to post pics, stetting up my profile etc.) as well as a few other things. Thanks i love this forum and really look foward to helping in the future! and really like seeing extreme joyners on the trail!

    • Trooper computer programmer

      There is a company I ran across at the CES trade show this year. They make a programmer that should be able to program the Troopers computer. About $300. The Trooper s computer is a standard Bosch car computer. The only differance is that it is programed for the Trooper. The programmer will program most any car or truck so it should work. The company could probably help is finding which program the computer uses and assist finding out which computer pins to hook to. This programmer will program all aspects of the tuning including things like Pulse width tables, VE tables, Timing tables, prime pulse width, crank pulse width, after start pulse width, warmup pulse width, enrichment pulse widths, acceleration pulse widths. rev limit and more.

    • Wanted: Trooper Axle Parts

      I am interested in any old trooper axle parts you may have lying around. Please let me know if your want to sell them.  Backstory: Hey everyone. Last trip out to moab I climbed a wall on poison spyder Mesa while 2 rzr xp1000's and three can am x3 xrc's watched me and didn't dare try. After doing it once I pulled around to show them it wasn't a fluke. One on the can am x3 xrc drivers just looked at me and said "that's steep". On the second try I spread the bell on the left rear axle. I made the climb but now the inner cage slips inside making a loud popping noise as twisting the boot. I mainly just need the inner bell but I am interested in anything you have.
