Vct Vt-500j Japanese Step Up Down Voltage Transformer Converts Japan
I have a VCT VT 500J and a 100 volt Japanese pre-amp
I no longer have the instructions that came with the VT500J. My question is into which font outlet on the units face plate do I plug the japanese 100volt unit into to step the voltage down to 100 Volts?

If you have an American appliance, plug it into the American outlet if you are in Japan. If you have a Japanese appliance plug it into the Japanese outlet if you are in the Americas. Use an adapter to change the cord at the back to plug into a Japanese outlet if you are in Japan.

P1764 OBD Trouble Code
P1764 the main thing to check is to verify the operation of the VCT solenoid. You're looking for a sticking or stuck VCt solenoid valve caused by contamination. Refer to vehicle specific repair manual to perform component tests for the VCT unit.
P1764 OBD Trouble Code Repair :
The sensors receive a 5 volt reference signal from the PCM. As pressure readings change, the sensor varies the voltage and the computer reads that to determine input. In the case of a broken wire, the sensor never sees the voltage and the computer assumes a major fault. So if you get this P1764 code, first check to make sure you're getting a good 5 volt reference signal at the sensor.
The FSM cover this 100% as does ALLdata.com
like all DTCs (you forgot yours, that be bad.....)
the car store scan too can in fact miss many important other DTC errors that greatly help solving the riddle.
in all cases the PCM sees an VCT error
in all cases it can be these things. (FSM shows ways to find out) read it.
1: the sensor bad
2:its wires are bad, cut or it fall off.
3;the cam driver is loose, change or belt as the case may be.
4: the actual VCT bits are bad.
since NO DTC posted all answer WILL BE wrong.
next time get a real shop to scan car with a real scan tool
that reads all.GM codes, not the O;really cheap box.
the post those.
some CODEs do say ,exacltl what is wrong.
for example, the sensor voltage it so high.
that is a bad sensor or wires.
other codes will decode to like, the cam angles are changing oddly.
(lots of causes)
You need a step-down voltage converter to convert 220V to 120V.
Amazon has them. One example - http://www.amazon.com/VCT-VT-300-Voltage-Transformer-Converts/dp/B000J65PJQ/ref=sr_1_13?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1365005058&sr=1-13&keywords=convert+120V+to+220 or http://www.amazon.com/Voltage-Converter-220-240-110/dp/B001ES8YY6/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1365005058&sr=1-2&keywords=convert+120V+to+220.
Look for words like "voltage converter", "voltage transformer" and "travel"
The VCT solenoid is located under the valve cover toward the front. There are a total of two solenoids, one on each bank (side). If you look at the valve cover you will see a harness and connector going to the solenoid with the top of the solenoid sticking through the valve cover. Remove the valve cover for the affected side, place a shop rag at the timing chain area to keep debris or bolts from falling in. Unfasten the solenoid and simply pull it straight out. Replace the solenoid, remove the rag and reinstall the cover. Be sure to remove the rag :o)
That being said, the main cause of VCT codes or a noise from the VCT is caused by the camshaft phaser. This is the mechanical part of the VCT system and mounts to the front of the camshaft. It operates by oil pressure that is controlled by computer signals to the solenoid.
If the solenoid is sticking, I've had luck taking a 12 volt power source and applying power and ground to the two pins at the solenoid, touching the terminals a few times. This sometimes frees the solenoid and brings the vehicle back to normal cam timing. A fresh oil change with a factory motorcraft filter will help keep the system clean and free from VCT concerns.
Some aftermarket oil filters will start to come apart, sending paper into the oil channels. This affects the oil pressure, the very pressure that the VCT system needs to work. I hope this info helps. If for any reason you can't give four thumbs up, please request more information. Good luck!
P1380 - Misfire Detected Rough Road Data Not Available
The comprehensive component monitor (CCM) monitors the VCT circuit to the PCM
for high and low voltage. If the voltage falls below a calibrated limit
a calibrated amount of time during testing, the test fails.
Open or short in the VCT circuit.
Open VPWR circuit.
Open or short in the VCT solenoid valve.
Possible Solutions: DTC P1380 is a VCT circuit check. Testing should include wires, solenoid coil, and the PCM.
hello. The electrical power used in most of Japan is very similar to that of the USA. The difference is that Japan uses 100 volts as opposed to our 110. Therefore, most electrical appliances, blow dryers, etc will work equally well in Japan and in the USA.
Since you are in Australia now, use the same adapter for your expresso machine as you use for other small appliances and you should be fine.
