Ok I got new ecm and power is back and pulls great, but it still has a miss at idle, I dont know if it has miss a cruise speed or not but I do know if you put a bypass box on it it runs just fine. So where to look? I am thinking wire harness?Is wire harness two peace or single harness, in other words am I dealing with a night mare to do my self?

ive never changed the harness on a dodge but i have replaced the engine harness on a isb cummins in a motor home and a couple freightliner chassis its not a real big deal if its a new oem harness, single harness plug and play the only difficult plug was the cam sensor behind the vp-44. good luck with it.

Oh man... that sucks about your electrical problems... It is just a one piece deal on these. Posted Image

I just replaced mine trying to run down an electrical problem also..... Not too bad to do. Like he said that one plug behind the IP is kinda hard to reach and there are a couple other spots you will cuss about, but not too bad.

It smoking at all??? Valves set right?? You need to get ahold of an ISB compression test adapter and check for good compression on this motor.... You will find out real quick if you got a mechanical issue, you might have a low hole I have seen a couple like this before. You haven't drilled the connector tubes out larger have you? like this... http://www.ntxtools.com/network-tool-warehouse/STR-TU-15-26.html or this is the one i use and the one we used to use at the dodge house. snap on. http://buy1.snapon.com/catalog/item.asp?item_ID=68606&group_ID=1430

Yeah but you know if the cheater box is used then the problem is gone... So if the VP44 and ECM are new then that leaves the wiring in between that is faulty...

How are the injectors?Once you get some heat in them sometimes they can change if there bad or getting bad.Have you had them long?Have you checked the water/fuel.I had some bad fuel and it killed my injectors.Just a little vary little water can stop the pintle from working proper.

i'm still leaning torward the harness. check to see the price of that thing yet. the motorhome i replaced one in had a miss that we could not isolate and the harness ohmed out fine to cummins specs. it was under warranty so cummins footed the bill on that and it did cure the problem. (something to concider before blowing it up) good luck man!

I am with you It's got to be the harness, and I wonder how much will that cost? It runs good with the cheater box and that eliminates the electronics in vp and ecm so what else is left?

Posts: 51 Well it sounds like a f**ked up lope. Trucks runs fine and doesnt miss goin down the road just at idle. Its like a counterfit lope. I guess if i wanted to put a smoke switch and telleverybody i had a hotrod pump it would be ok. But this is fixin to get my truck sold. Im about fed up with it and nobdy seems to know what it is.
