alright, so i rewired everything in my car and left the computer the way it was when it was working.
im now running a 4AWG wire to a distro block with a 8AWG from it to VIN
im running a 8AWG from ground on DSATX to distro out of which 4AWG to a chassis ground.
and same old ACC line that i hade before.
now i am getting 5 blinks. also when the ignition is off it blinks 3 times and turns off..then sort of blinks twice...then 3 times again..all kind of weird pattern.
what could it be??
if i were to disconnect my PC from the batter what are the steps i would take. I am using TOP posts on my battery as to not interfere with my side posts for the car. Would i remove the ground from DSATX first then take the POSITIVE connector of top post off my battery??
and last but not least.. can i leave the setup the way it is overnight...connected..but not working. or is it better to disconnect everything, i am not entirely sure on what to do.
my wire connectors to DSATX are all messed up, where can i get some new ones?
thanks in advance.
EDIT: just went back to the car almost 2 hours later and it is still blinking. i dont want it to kill my battery so i pulled VIN out then GROUND ( i know i shouldve done in reverse if it matters) .. anyway noticed that my ground is very loosely connected to the wire terminal..could that be the problem? is there a way to check a proper ground wire?
i need new connectors to connect to the terminals in DSATX and every other one are too wide..
