Intake Heater operation

Recommended Posts

My wait to start light is not functioning, I checked the relays they can be powered up (using engines remote start switch) and fire up the heater grids. Does any one know of any wire colors and functions for the controler, or a website link to schematic's??? Thanks

Well as far as I understand the grid heaters are controlled by the PCM under the hood near the battery. The IAT sensor sense the intake temps and desides if the grid heaters are needed. Now I know th key trick works on the 1st gens and will display a flash code on the CHECK ENGINE light. I'll get ahold of Taz and find out what wires are hooked to the relays...
