    Turbo Timer not working

    Hey everyone,

    So I'm having issues with my turbo timer as well as other electric aspects of my car. My turbo timer no longer keeps the car running even when it's turned on. Also, when I turn my car all the way off, the clock and radio are still on. Furthermore, the green ring around the ignition stays on. And then my alarm decides to go off at random times even when nothing is around it. It's such a pain and I have no idea what may be causing this. Any ideas? Thanks for your help!

    First thing I would do is remove the turbo timer. There's no need for it, and being that it is the odd component in your electrical system, chances are it is what's causing the problem.

    New coilpack? Then I would check/clean the grounds around the area that was worked on.. it actually wouldn't hurt to clean all the grounds in the engine bay. Do you have a DMM? It might be a good idea to check your voltage. It should be around 12v with the engine off and 13.4v-14.4v while running.

    Yeah, new coilpack. Mm yeah, what should I clean the area with? And no I don't have a DMM. But I know someone who does.

    Remove the turbo timer, they are worthless on water cooled turbos... clean the ground areas with a wire brush and some electrical cleaner... You can get a multi meter from Harbor Freight tools for less then $10, a good investment for the DIY garage mechanics...
