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!
that is the correct wiring on the foot pedal, i would check the battery with a multimeter and verify that you are still getting 12 volts from the battery, ometimes the connectors become disconnected under the plastic housing of the battery
a serial port is a 9 pin (DB-9) connector for serial communication (RS232) used by modems, mouse, etc... In older machines you had a DB-25 (25 pin connector) as well usually situated in the back of the computer near the printer port (DB-25 connector) but femail (25 holes insdead of 25 pins)
GEAR SELECTOR LEVER - INCREASED EFFORT TO SHIFT FROM DRIVE TO PARK
Publication Date: November 1, 2004
2002-2005 Explorer, Mountaineer
Some 2002-2005 Explorer 4dr/Mountaineer vehicles, may require a greater effort to move the gear selector lever (shift lever) from drive to park. This may be due to a time delay with the brake shift interlock (BSI) pin retraction. ACTION:
To service, replace the BSI switch. Refer to the following Service Procedure. SERVICE PROCEDURE
Remove the two (2) fasteners supporting the instrument panel knee bolster from below the steering column and remove the cover (Figure 1).
Figure 1 - Article 04-22-12
Remove the three (3) fasteners supporting the steering column lower shroud and remove the cover (Figure 2).
Figure 2 - Article 04-22-12
Remove the three (3) wiring bundle carrier fasteners from the bottom of the steering column to allow movement while removing the BSI switch. It may be necessary to release the connectors from the multifunction switch (Figure 3).
Figure 3 - Article 04-22-12
Remove the BSI fasteners (T-30 on the side and T-20 on the bottom) (Figure 4).
Figure 4 - Article 04-22-12
Pull the BSI tab on the bottom of the column downward to help free the BSI from the column housing.
Break the two (2) side tabs off the BSI by the white wiring connector (Figure 5).
Figure 5 - Article 04-22-12
Push the locking tab on the white connector towards the wiring to release the connector from the BSI. Be careful not to damage the connector or wiring. If the connector does not free easily, a very small flat screwdriver may be used to help lift the locking tab (Figure 6).
Figure 6 - Article 04-22-12
Connect the wiring to the new BSI. Ensure all clips are fully engaged to prevent the connector from pulling free.
Reinstall the BSI onto the steering column and reinstall fasteners (Figure 7).
Figure 7 - Article 04-22-12
Check BSI function. With the key in the accessories or run position, press the brake pedal. The BSI pin should retract on brake application, and spring up one (1) second after releasing the brake pedal. Repeat several times.
Reinstall fasteners to connect wiring bundle carrier to the steering column. Make sure all connections to the multifunction switch unit are secured properly.
Reassemble steering column in reverse order. Ensure rubber gap hider around shift lever is properly seated on the shroud.
Cycle the shift lever from park to drive and drive back to park several times to verify improved shift effort.
The motherboard or PCB (Primary Circuit Board) is responsible for connecting all computer devices to the microprocessor. It supplies devices with power and allows the computer to react with them, Devices that can be used by connecting to the motherboard are: Storage devices, sound cards, graphic cards and hard disks.
Devices or components that are needed to make the computer work as it should, are inbuilt within the motherboard or can be connected to it using a socket or port. Listed below are sockets and ports that are available on the motherboard for connecting devices and , what that they are capable of doing.
PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) slot: Supports peripherals like sound cards, DVD decoders, and graphic accelerators with 32 bits at 33Mhz capabilities. There are usually anywhere from 1 to 6 PCI slots available on the motherboard.
AGP (Accelerated Graphic Port): This provides fast bus speed connectivity along with fast access to the main memory. It is designed for video cards that demand higher bandwidth.
Chipset-North Bridge: An integrated circuit that has special duties.
CPU (Central Processing Unit) socket: A socket specifically for connecting your computer processor.
DIMM (Double Inline Memory Module) slots, SIMM (Single Inline Memory Module) and RIMM: Different types of memory (RAM) can be installed into these slots.
Motherboard Battery: A battery compartment, which stores the battery used for storing data such as system date and time, when you shut down your system.
IDE Connector: Responsible for connecting the IDE cord used for hard disks, CD drives, and DVD drives.
Firewire header (IEEE 1394): A serial bus used to exchange digital and audio data with high performance abilities.
The following listed items are parts that are built within the motherboard with specific connective uses such as keyboards, mouse, and printers.
PS/2 Connectors: Each motherboard usually has 2 PS/2 connectors for the keyboard and the mouse.
USB (Universal Serial Bus) port: There are usually a couple of these ports located on each motherboard used for connecting pen drives and external hard drives, like Ipods or Mp3 players.
Parallel or (LPT) port: The place used to connect scanners and printers.
Game Port: The port to connect all gaming devices for example, a joystick.
Sound Card Connectors: Plug in your microphone or speakers here.
Display Connector: Connecting your monitor to the motherboard.
COM (Communication) port: The port designed to connect your mouse and modem.
Are you makeing a Pilot chair w/ foot controls? You are right about the wiring conections a blob means they touch, no blob means no touch. You will need wiring like as used in a phone line. Multi strand w/ a sheild. Something like a 24 / 22 gage wire coper stranded not fiber. Try A/c thermostat wiring.
You will not find any matching connector to connect the JK-744 host adapter for attaching to the 9 pin serial port on the pc.
If you want full pinout details please contact me directly. Please do include some information on what you are trying to achieve. Maybe I can be of help in that department.
I however have a feeling that trying any micro surgery on the JK-744 or trying any kind of non Casio adapter is likely to mess up the JK-744 device itself.
