Trying to replace the serial connector on the wire that connect the foot pedals to the steering wheel for an XBox game. My boy cut off the old 9-pin connector and I picked up another one at Radio Shack, however, I'm not sure where the 4 (red, green, white, and black) wires go in the 9-pin connector. It appears that looking inside the steering device (as much as I could do), that there are four wires connecting to the four ports on the 9-pin and maybe one more wire connecting to the one of the 5-pin side of the connector. I don't know if this helps, however, thought I would share it.

This might sound silly, but its always the first thing to check; do you have the pedals cord plugged into the steering wheel console? Next, go to Start, Devices and Printers, and double click on your device. Try fiddling around with the different settings for the pedals and see if that brings them back online. I would check after each adjustment. Finally, make sure all your Thrustmaster drivers are installed, that the game you're trying to play has the pedals set up, and that all connections are tight. Hope this helps!
Most common issue (assuming it hasn't been modded) is simply dirty connections. With the power off and unplugged (say saying to protect myself so someone doesn't get electrocuted), use compressed air to spray out thee ports. From there, dip q-tips in isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol and gently clean the metal connections on both the PS3 and device that is being connected. There is a chance that one of the tiny metal connectors have broken off. If the other port is still working, you could pick up a hub which is a device that has one USB end that plugs into the PS3 but multiple input ports to allow multiple devices.
Easiest way is to connect the pS3 to your wireless network. If you don't have a wireless network, connect a ethernet cable from your PS3 LAN port (on the back of the PS3) to one of the numbered LAN ports on your router.
The wii does not come with an ethernet port (or place to connect to wired internet) built in. It's primary internet connection is through wifi or wireless internet. A USB adapter can be bought (like these) Those plug into the back of the console in the usb port.
First you must have an active internet connection, second you must have a router (if you are trying to connect multiple items to the internet I.E. your computer AND the Wii), Third you have to determine whether your router is a wireless one or not, if it is then all is great, click on the Wii button in the bottom left corner, click on Wii settings, click on the right pointing arrow to go to page 2 of the settings, click on internet, click on connection settings, click on connection 1 (should say [none] next to it if it doesn't then you might want to clear the settings) click on wireless connection, click on manual setup, enter the SSID, enter the encryption key when asked for it then you should be good to go unless your router's security settings need changing. If you are trying to connect through a wired connection, then you need some other equipment... my Wii doesn't have an ethernet port, just an sd card port, memory card ports, and a couple USB ports, so I assume you need either a usb-ethernet adaptor or a router with a usb port. I've never connected a Wii over anything but a wireless connection so I could be wrong with regard to a wired connection.
In order to connect your console to the internet you will need the following:
Laptop with WiFi
Video capture card
Below are the steps involved includind some additional information:
Go to Settings in the PS3 menu and scroll down to Network Settings. Go to Internet Connection Settings and select your wireless router from the list of available connections. If the router has security, you must input your password. Internet Connection in the Network Settings list will say "Enabled" once you are connected.
Link the laptop and PS3 together through a router if you have one. Connect both the console and computer to the router with Ethernet cables. This is needed for a PS3 with 40 gigabytes of memory and that does not have WiFi.
Connect the devices directly with a USB cable. Use one of the USB-style ports the PS3 uses for its game controllers. This requires a USB cable with two thin connector plugs.
Connecting to a Monitor
Purchase an external video capture card for your laptop. This device will connect to the computer through the USB port and will have both composite and S-video connections.
Connect the capture card to your laptop. Insert its included CD-ROM into your disc drive and install the software on it that allows the computer to recognize the card's drivers and includes a video viewing/editing application.
Attach the PS3 to the capture card using the console's RCA composite cable. Open the video application and turn the console on to view it in the program's screen.
Locate and click the application's "full screen" button to enlarge the game screen to your full monitor. THANKS. MIKE
you may find it is a part of the connection rather in the connection socket or even a split wire and if u mange to get it repaired then wen u rap the wire be careful no to rap it tight or fold it to much
