I'm going to answer your question, but dude are you really complaining about typical 1 hour turn around on technical support, from a US-based and English speaking highly trained support tech, provided at no cost, on a low cost D-I-Y product, on a topic has been covered multiple times?
This was the first thread that popped up in a search. It has the answers you seek:
DIYPNP A/C R14
I try to be as friendly as possible, but you need to cut me some slack man.
First off, I do really appreciate the help you have given me, but if you look through the thread it's so much more complicated than this. A topic that has been covered multiple times? The AC hookup has been covered again and again, but never for anything but gslender code, and the past 12 hours have been troubleshooting with you have been for the why the I/O's on the mainboard are not functioning. And to be fair, an hour turn around was a very optimistic estimate.
I should apologize. You have to understand where I am coming from. Looking back I really should not have done this to a daily driver, but after reading the forum it seemed so simple. I don't have anyone else near me to help, and I don't have money to pay someone to help. I'm living in Florida where AC is kinda necessary, and I have literally everything working on the ECU minus the AC idle up (purely reactive AC is a complete fail....). I'm just so frustrated that I can't get this to work for all of the work we have put in for something that everyone regards as so simple. And yet with all that said, at the time I wrote this I wasn't particularly happy because I emailed you guys for 2 days and got no response. I am feeling trapped here and wasn't appreciative enough for what you have done, and for that I am sorry. It's not your fault that it's not working.
This morning before writing this, I hooked it up as shown (http://www.miataturbo.net/attachment...-miata-ecu-jpg
), without R14, and the car gets wacky idle voltages, barely runs, and the AC is always on.....so square 1. I just don't know where to go and what to do?
EDIT: I misunderstood that you meant you have been answering 12 hours a technical questions for people the last couple days. Although the above word choices don't make complete sense anymore, the idea hasn't changed
