    Red face 101 problems... someone please help!

    Ok guys, I'm gonna tell you the modifications I have made to my 02 WRX which led to ALL the quirks it now has. Despite the fact that you may be saying to yourself "This kid is an idiot, he doesn't have a clue what he is doing," I am asking you to please help me diagnose and fix these problems. We all just want a healthy Suby and mine is a little under the weather right now...

    The car was functioning properly before these mods:

    TurboXS Manual Boost Controller
    Blittz DTTII Turbo TImer/Boost Gauge

    (note: while installing the turbo timer I followed the instructions someone had posted on a different forum [http://www.scoobymods.com/forums/sho...&threadid=228] as to how to get the factory alarm to arm while the car is still running. It involved clipping two wires. I would guess that this could very well have been the source of my problems.)

    The quirks I am now experiencing:

    -Speedo stops working and ABS light comes on when AC clutch engages or when headlights are switched on (second position)
    -ABS light goes off when AC clutch disengages or the e-brake is pulled
    -Fog lights and cruise control no longer work
    -Car occasionally stumbles when under normal acceleration

    (note: There are 2 cylindrical relays clipped to the left side of the fuse panel. One of them is labeled "ABS IG". The lower relay clicks when the ABS light comes on or off and the upper relay gets warm during operation.)

    *The OBD II showed a code for the Vehicle Speed Sensor

    Well guys, this is all the info. Pleeeaaassseee... any help would be HUGE. I'm embarassed that I caused these problems and I would love to get them fixed asap. Thanks y'all.

    About 14 psi. It was around 16 or 17 when I first installed and was dialing it in. Thanks!
