(CPE owners READ THIS!!!) CPE Intake fix.

Well Wednesday I started to have a problem that when I hit a bump my car would stall also every time I closed my hood it would stall. On Thursday it stalled in traffic so I had to tow it and while sitting in class on Friday I had plenty of time to think about the prob. It would try to fire and had three codes p100 p110 and p1300 (MAF, Air temp, Ignitor). So I started by replacing the MAF because it acted similar to unplugging the MAF no help :(. Still no idea, I came home it started nice... but it was still the same problem. Then I got to thinking what could make all those sensors go off at the same time. CPE black box!!!

So while it was running I hit below the glove box and instant stall, yup CPE connections. I took apart the glove box and found one of the clip on connectors had nearly eaten through the wire :(. So I decided to fix them all the correct and suggested way by CPE. So if you are in my boat or want to prevent this I took some pics of how to easily solder all CPE connections. While still making it easy to remove and not permanently change anything so it is easy to go back to stock.

After finishing this project all problems went away and the car ran perfectly. I also smacked the wires a bit and the car still ran perfect.


Start by striping the wires and twisting them together.
Image

Then slip a spade female connector over it and solder it on NOT CRIMP solder it.

Image

Next slip heat shrink tubing over it and apply heat. I used a small lighter.

Image

Now just slip in the CPE connector

Image

Here all finished

Image

and the black box

this would probably be equally as useful with the TRD EBC... good advice.

Thanks and it sounds like you found a good installer. I also modded my plasma booster ignition module the same way so I will have no problems there.

Cleanly done. I didn't solder mine, as i didn't have a soldering iron present and needed the car to run, so i just used electrical tape to hold the connection with the wires tied together. Haven't had any problems with the connections so far, but i should solder them eventually.
Thanks for the right up.

I would suggest you do it before it becomes a problem.

My problem was not the connections coming off but the connector eating through the wires as it vibrated.

what does that mean? i'm guessing you haveN'T had another problem with the car SINCE the soldering job? I'm assuming thats what it says. If you say that there HAS been a problem with your car since the soldering then plz lemme know cuz i need to know what to lookout for. Great pics and great instruction. thanks mang.
