Sounds very much like you have it wired it backwards. Take the coils off the ignition modual and make sure where the wires underneith are going. You can hook them up backwards and it will work but not right.
There's only one way the spark plug wires are suposed to be run. I'm refering to the wires under the coils. You can hook them up wrong and then have running problems. Please repost this in the regular HA section and not in this sticky.:biggrin: Thanks.:smile:Thanks for the reply..So in other words, When looking at the motor and coil from the front of the car, The 3 wires toward the back of the motor should shoot off to the right side of the motor and the wires off the front of the coil should shoot off to the left. That is Exactly opposite of what I have and what Ive seen in pics but then again my car isnt running right. Maybe I'm missing something but still doesnt sound right. Just to be sure here, The numbers on the coil and the motor correspond to where the wires go right? In other words, Coil 1 goes cylinder 1 coil 2 goes to cylinder 2 and so on.. That is correct right? Or am I reading this all wrong?
I stand corrected.Hey Jerryl,
The picture in that post is showing a thumbwheel style chip compared to a normal chip.
The actual type/size of the chip is the same for the 84 through 87, but the programming is completely different so you still can't interchange them.
You had to ask. I don't know if you have seen my other threads on guesstimates but I'll take one on astroroof 84 GNs.
OK I have a vast library of SPID labels I've collected over the years. By adding up the options I'm able to guess assuming everything is proportional. Here it goes. I have 9 SPID labels for 84 WE2 GNs and 5 for the W11 T-Type. CC1 is T-top and CF5 is Astroroof. It goes as follows
According to my info that means 33.33% are Astroroofs and 22.22% are T-tops. Based on this we can guess that there could have been at least 667 GNs with the Astroroof option. BTW I found it strange that the last 3 VINs I had on file all had the Astroroof.
Here are the 84 T-Type numbers.
476808=no. Black car without the L-S seats
492317=no. WH1 car without L-S seats
571434=no. WH1 car without L-S seats
597453=CC1. WH1 car without L-S seats
611909=no. Brown car without L-S seats.
That means that 20% have T-tops with no astroroof which would mean that a T-Type with Astroroof and the L-S seats would be even rarer. The fact that 60% of the T-Types were also WH1 cars doesn't surprise me. Out of 3,400 T-Types more than 1,000 had the WH1 option.
