Oh dear no reading from my AFR at WOT!!!

Fitted a AFR 2 weeks ago, which worked fine when driving normaly ie. knight rider effect

But at WOT no signal!!!!

I have tried just about everything!!

1. originaly plumbed into ecu.
2. routed a better earth for the gauge.
3. connected directly into lambda.
4. changed fuel filter.
5. changed lambda sensor for a new one ( that was a fun job and oh so cheap )

All of the above haven't made a blinky bill bit of a differance

The car is a MY99 turbo standard runs like a dream,

Anyone any ideas

Cheers,

Plums.

Sorted it!

Cost me an arm and a good part of my left leg plus a whole lot of worry and time.....

But all tickerty boo now!

The problem was.........




























The flippin MAF sensor bought one on the way home from work and low and behold green lights on full boost!

Scary thing is if I didn't have a AFR gauge I would never of known I was running so lean as to not even get a reading and that's on a standard car! The car ran perfectly and boosted lovely, real glad I got a AFR probably saved my engine

Chuffed to mutts nuts I am!

Plums.

P.S. I hope that this thread will be of value to all who suffer the same defect.

Cheers Phil! Nice one Pete

Real glad I got to the bottom of it!

Like I mentioned before the car is standard and ran great no signs of MAF failure whatsoever......

Now I really understand why cars go bang at silly boosts, imagine if I had increased boost slightly with the belief that fueling was ok my car would of probably shat a piston

My phrase for the day..... first Mod should be AFR

Cheers,

Plums.

P.S. Imagine I was probably saving fuel running on full boost not that funny really
