Default No Power- Does Not Turn On - Braineack PnP

Just installed Braineack's MS PnP on my 95. MS does NOT come on.

Have it plugged inline with the stock ECU but the lights on the MS are NOT coming on.

Megatune does NOT recognize the MS.

Seems like the MS is not getting power.

- Anyone have contact information for Braineack? Phone #?

- Any suggestions?

Thanks!

We're not that close.

You can check if the MS works with a 9 volt battery. Pin 28 is + and 19 is negative. See if it powers on. If it does, then its the boomslang.

Get a digital multimeter and check pin 28 on the female end of the DB9 with the car turned to on. If you get +12 then you have power, if not then its the boomslang.

He used the boomslang that braineak included, there is no wiring. Just plug and play.

Thanks for the recommendations.

MS does NOT power on with a 9 volt pattery (pin 28+ and 19-).
