Newage Boost Control Solenoid Cleaning

Hi all,

Does anyone know how to clean a BCS on a newage? I have a 2001 bug WRX.

I've followed instructions for a classic but when I connect the green plugs to put it in service mode all this does it put the fan on so I can't get in the solenoid to spray carb clearner in. Just seems to stay closed.

Any help would be appriciated!

Thanks

Take it off, but remember which hose went to which port, then using the 2 connectors on the bcs, connect them to a power supply by simply touching the wire to a connector. I used a couple of wires and connected it to the battery. The bcs solenoid opens and spray into the ports with carb cleaner or equivalent. Keep opening and closing the solenoid by removing the wire and then touching it again. Dont leave the power on too long at a lime, but it should only takes a few sprays to clean it.
