I have search and have not found anything:
2.2 Hybrid Motor (been in a week)
Cobb a/p ii
Voltage Grounding Kit
Sub Kit (no longer hooked to the battery, sub not in car)
(Pulled from a different Forum where there is also an open tread)
I just had a new motor put in the car so i am pretty certain it has nothing to do with the items installed in the bay. My amp wire has been disconnected and the only items going trough the firewall are my gauge lines and they are through the preexisting hole in the firewall right in behind the clutch (through the rubber grommet).
The car has been running perfectly till today when i washed it. the issue came back. I did not have my A/P hooked up so I am Tot sure of the voltage- however the interior dash lights began to dim and when I would hit the brake the radio and mirror compass would shut off, when i would hit the high beams or the 4 ways it would flicker. To me this is a definite voltage issue.
When I pulled into my spot and shut the car off and tried to restart- it just went black and everything cleared itself. (radio, odometer) I have gone though all the fuses to make sure they are all the correct and disconnected everything that was zip tied to the underside of the dash. I had one a little tight around the fuse harness. I do not think this is the problem as I moved the harness and nothing happened.
However I did find something interesting and I am not sure what it is. Under the dash there is a wire bundle just above the brake pedal. When I moved this harness all the lights came back on and the car started right up. Thus I have a feeling this is where my problem lies. (It was resting on the brake pedal arm) This would make sense for there to be a problem when the brake is depressed.
The problem is I do not have a clue as to what the harness is for. It is hard to describe as there are about 20 harness under there, but this a white harness located just to the right of the brake up against the plastic surround for the dash. It appears to be right to the right next of the OBD2 port.
Does anyone know what this harness is for? I know this is not the primary issue since it only happens with the car has been washed or driven in the rain, but if I can backtrack it from there then maybe there is hope.
I have checked all the light connections and they are intact and there is no moisture inside any of my light housing..
Have tested the battery and the alternator and they are both at 12V.
Thank you in advance.
