Question about 2005 Saturn VUE
Hello I am building a land speed attempt car & purchased a 04/05 Saturn Vue EPS off Ebay to install. What is the most basic wiring hookup? It has All wiring coming out of two plugs attached controller: PLUG ONE: two large guage wires ( 1 Black & 1 Red ).
PLUG TWO 3 very small wires( 2 Purple & 1 red).
I am assuming that the large leads are 12V supply for the steer motor & the smaller leads are eather to speed sensor or ?
QUESTION Can this be fed a dummy signal ? if so what Volt/amp or type. OR can the wires be connected together in some fashion to satisfy the controller to it least have it power up in a limp mode ?
This is a fresh pull from a running vehical so it is likely in good shape. But if only the mains are fed 12V nothing powers up.
I do not need speed sensing control since I will design the steering arms & box around the output of the unit.
The Car I am building is based on a Fusaloge from a Lear Jet 35 using a Volks wagon bus front axle & two over clocked 2002 Supercharged 3.8 Grand prix GTP front wheel drive trains mounted as driving rear axles.
I am 3/4 complete. It looks strange but is very streamlined & light.
My wife & I plan to drive it to The SCTA time trial meets as more of a Joke But given the numbers it should pull 200mph plus (empty of extra seats , sound system etc.).
REALLY COULD USE YOUR HELP as I am an old school racer & new to EPS. ( and anything to do with wiring up to a chip based anything).
Thanks in advance, August Sommerfeld REPLY TO email@example.com
The two large guage wires are constant power and ground. The small red wire is an ign power, and the 2 purple wires are class 2 data lines. I've recently heard of a company making a dummy module. Something with river in the name.

engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only
for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the
transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in
most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory
of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as
the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done
is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system
for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for
engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained
technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then
based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the
correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer
replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other
basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with
the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine.
The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear
engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related
