    Saying hi again

    Software is constantly changing all the time. New features, new abilities, etc. Sometimes things get overlooked or software get old and starts failing. I've got no problem looking into issues if you can't get into the website.

    Remaned ECM took out vp44?

    Here you go the wiring between the VP44 and the ECM pretty simple to test. Basically, unhook both the VP44 and the ECM. Now ohm test from pin to pin it should be ZERO ohms. With it still unhooked now do the pin to GROUND. This just proves there is no wires shorted to ground this should show INFINITE ohms (Open circuit).

    Remaned ECM took out vp44?

    P1689 is communication code. Basically anything to screw up communication between VP44 and the ECM. Possible Causes Wiring & Connectors Fuel Injection Pump Relay Output Circuit Open Ground Circuit Open Or High Resistance Datalink (+) Circuit Open Datalink (+) Circuit Shorted To Ground Datalink (-) Open Datalink (-) Shorted To Ground ECM
  5. To me, it looks like the rubber roof was never glued down like its suppose to. Looks like it grew a blister of air and the wind beat the rubber till it tore. This is because the rubber wasn't glued down to the roof.

    Bouncing Around

    I would have to say time to call warranty on those shocks. I've got a set of Rancho's that are nearly 200k miles on them and still doing OK. Starting to get a bit more bounce than I like.
  7. Bottom of ANY page should have "Contact Us" and it has my phone number listed there. https://mopar1973man.com/contact/
  8. The problem is the crank sensor was moved to the cam. Then the early version cam sensor was removed. The cam gear has a tone ring now in the later series so this requires changing the cam. Since the cam tone ring is in a different position then that means the gear case has to be swapped. If you think you can just swap the electronics this typically turns into a bigger issue because of the wiring difference and communication difference between early and late trucks. This is why its best to get the same year of engine that way there are no issues with electronics versus mechanical. If you give me a call some time I can explain easier on the phone what the problem is and why this is such a headache to deal with.
  9. This would be a first... I've never heard of a stitched block holding up...
  10. No. Again gear case issues, cam issues wiring issues. only a 98.5, 99 or 2000. That won't work either. Most fail again after stitch the black back together. The only thing you could do is convert the entire truck over to 2001 or 2002 but this requires replacing all the wiring harness cab included, change the gear case, change the cam, change both PCM and ECM as a pair. Still much easier to find a 98.5, 99, or 2000 engine.
  11. Won't work. Wiring issues, cam issues, gear case issue, etc. Best to buy another 1999 engine that way there are no issues.

    cp3 issue?

    That's what it cost for my entire truck in 2002. This is just a rebuild... I'll skip the common rail world Thank You. That's just insane amount of money because of a CR injector failure.
  13. all the wiretap does is pull to ground for a set microseconds once the PSG module on the VP44 stops. Just to clarify your last state a bit more.
  14. Might look better but I wonder if it can exceed OEM lifespan. Mine went 334k miles on the OEM drag link and tie rod ends. Let's see if it holds up to the test of time.
