Keep me posted. Im thinking about grabbing one of the pillar gauge things and wouldnt mind putting a diagnostic blinky lights and switch in it.

Where is the connector you speak of? Is it something an 86.5 might have?

Do you have to connect from the ECU or can all the connections be made from the check connector?

Nissan trucks were never OBD1 ( I know later one's were OBD2) so was the connector under the dash for the Consult tool? Last night I searched for pin outs for the diagnostic connector and was finding write up's to connect the Nissan plug to a comp. plug, but not sure what is meant to connect to the diagnostic connector under the dash.

Do you think the guy that did that ECU code mod used a switch because the year car they did it on uses a switch on the ECU? I wonder if you can still use a switch even on the ECU's that have a knob ?

Even the ECU's that have the knob act more like a switch because you have to turn the knob fully the opposite direction to turn the code reading part on. It's not a variable thing like a knob would normally be.

I've found it on all models in the junkyard - 86.5 and up. Look (or feel) under the dash just to the right of the hood pull. Early ones were just the connector, but the later ones had a rubber boot over it. It is a black plug with 16 positions.
jp2code, if that plug is there on your truck you shouldn't have to run any wires from your ECU.

I found write up's last night on adding a consult connector to the Diagnostic connector, I guess on vehicles that don't come with a consult plug, so does that mean the diagnostic connector is NOT a consult plug?

I guess it isn't if people are doing this.

I think that connector may be pre-Consult, or maybe Consult 1.0. The Consult plugs I've seen are totally different from what we have in our trucks.

That's awesome!

Where are you finding the pin-out information on that port?

I'm sure I could find it in the "wiring diagram" in the Service Manual, but determining what a wire actually does on that "Copy from a 1985 Fax Machine" image is often impossible.

Can you post a pic of your port and the wire colors, jp2code?

Default Research Thread for Moving ECU Lights to Dash

Guys, I'd appreciate it if everyone interested in the ECU Light Mod would post a pic of their diagnostic connector. Please list wire colors, year, and engine of truck.
Thanks!
