Just buy a board from the junkyard. That's what I did. They can't make you buy the whole OHC.

Default Re: How-To: OHC Install

I picked up a console for $20 this past weekend, but I want to put it in my 97 F350 CC Powerstroke. The 97 doesn't have a GEM, but it does have a VSS, Does anyone know If I could tap into that wire to get the Temp sensor to read correct? Thanks

I believe that you'll have to put in a different temp sensor our else the reading would be incorrect, at least that's what I found when trying to connect my temp sensor with the ohc and mirror.

I'd assume. The color of the plastic screen thing may be different, but it shouldn't matter.

I found this info while searching
Quote:
The VSS input isn't for "wind chill"; it's for "heat soak". The idea is that, if you park after a long drive, the heat from the radiator can affect the sensor, so it ignores the sensor for a few minutes after you start driving again until the VSS indicates you've been going over a given speed long enough for the sensor to read accurately.


The data from the temperature sensor must be processed and adjusted so that engine heat does not affect the displayed temperature. When the ignition is first turned on, the module checks to see if the ignition has been off for more than two hours. If it has, the currently sensed temperature is displayed. If the ignition has not been off for two hours and the sensed temperature is higher than it was when the vehicle was turned off, the old temperature will be displayed. If the ignition has not been off for two hours and the sensed temperature is lower than it was when the vehicle was turned off, the currently sensed temperature is displayed.

To update the temperature, the module looks at several different factors, as listed below.

> Engine Cold

If ignition has been on for less than five minutes, and was previously off for longer than two hours, the engine is cold and does not affect the temperature sensor. Therefore, the current sensor data is used.

> Engine Warm, Updated Temperature Cooler

If ignition has been on for longer than five minutes or if the ignition was off for less than two hours, the engine compartment may be warm from the heat of the engine. The current sensor data is used only if it is less than the stored temperature reading from before.

> Engine Warm, Updated Temperature Warmer

If the sensor data indicates a higher temperature, the module looks at the vehicle speed to determine whether engine heat is causing erroneous readings. A "high speed counter" is used to determine this. The counter is incremented when the speed is greater than 53 km/h (33 mph) and decremented when the speed is between 16-53 km/h (10-33 mph). If the speed is less than 16 km/h (10 mph), the counter is reset, and the displayed temperature is not updated from its last reading. If the counter is greater than two minutes, the currently sensed temperature is displayed. If the high-speed counter has counted less than two minutes, the temperature is allowed to increase only one degree per minute.

If the temperature sensor is short- or open-circuited, the display will read SC or OC, respectively, instead of a temperature. If the temperature drops below 3.3C (38F) or is below 3.3C (38F) upon power-up, the display will alternate between displaying "ICE" and the temperature. The display will alternate every two seconds for a time of one minute.

Default Re: How-To: OHC Install

let me start by saying im stupid when it comes to anything electrical and im pretty terrible at wiring.. but can somebody help me, i got my ohc bolted up and everything fits good but i think i might have messed up wiring. i ran the yellow/gray, red/blue/ and gray/black wires behind the radio. i used butt connectors instead of tap because i couldnt find any. so there was literally no slack in the wires because someone already tapped into both y/g and r/b which made it really difficult to hook them up so i had to do it janky style and used two butt connectors on each wire so they would reach. now after i finally got those three wires hooked up and my ground i plugged my battery back in and turned the key and nothing from the ohc at all. i know the display works because i tested it on the battery before hand. everything seems to be working fine but nothing on the ohc display.. and the weird thing is i was messing with the ground wire to make sure it was ok, so i touched it up against the bracket/ screw with the truck on and everytime i touch the ground to the bracket the "door ajar" light comes on and beeps... wtf!? can it be the other wires tapped in one the wire im trying to tap into? can somebody chime in and tell me what im doing wrong, i can post pics if needed.. im driving around with wires hanging from my roof so please help lol

EDIT: never mind problem solved

Junk yard, all you need is the ohc, temp sensor, and some wiring, connections, tools, etc.

black.................. chassis ground
gray/yellow.......... yellow/black - radio
gray/black........... gray/black at GEM connector
black/light blue..... black/light blue at dome
