it sounds like you might have tapped the sensor into the wrong spot.


the Red/Black wire (singular) is the AIT signal wire on the harness.

the Black/Lt Green is the ground.


from DIY:



Doesn't matter which goes where. But it seems like me like you tapped into the RED and Blk/lt green or blk/blu wires.



if you'd had the laptop connected you'd have probably seen 0 in the intake

i dont remember for sure what the colors were, i went based on that picture that you posted, i cut the third and fourth wire so as long as it doesnt matter which one connects to which other one, i should be ok, no?

yeah if tapped into the ones above you'll be fine. Actually I guess if the AIT wasn't seen by MS it wouldn't run at all. So I sill think it's just a matter of tuning your fuel map.
