    I finally did c101 delete still no luck new o2 sensor and map as well even though they tested good I hate throwing parts at stuff lol makes me feel like a ****ty mechanic but I'm out of knowledge here. I got my sensor ground down to .3 ohms pulled pcm apart and no evidence of any burning or heat there I'm looking at possible ignition control module issues now is there a way to test the icm ? My cps is new, drilled and putting out .4 AC volts and the power and ground to icm are good

    Have you performed tip 6?
    Sometimes eliminating the C101 is necessary.

    There is still 1.3 ohms resistance from tps to batt neg is this ok and if not how do I reduce it
    Should I increase the gauge of the single ground from the sensors at the mod point to the pcm

    I don't trust the previous owner. Verify everything your self.

    90 and 93 have almost a negligible power difference.

    Glad you enjoy the website!!

    Ok so I will also tell you what he (the owner) told me as well as what I noticed: the owner said he's only had to do/done new spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor, oil changes, and the rotor, I noticed though he indirectly said he hasn't cleaned the air filter because he said it might be dirty, and it was rather hesitant on throttle response, idk if it's because of the power difference between the 1990 and the 93 or something else. Btw nice job with your website I love the way you have it laid out and properly coded!

    i would do that now... but i am getting another cherokee (surprise right) its going to be the replacement for my 1994 chevy, it is probably the most cleanest xj i've seen in my area its a 1990 with the renix motor, the only thing that is bothering me is that when i had it idling it was chugging like it was about to stall out, any ideas?

    Wondering if you could visit my thread:

    I was hoping you would have some information to contribute.

    How would I calculate that? Just add the total amps being drawn and compare that to the output? As I am sure you have seen, I wanna run a few lights on the old jeep....

    The front clip swap is super easy.
    The fusebox isn't the issue with the alternator output. The amp load the alternator will see as a result is. That needs to be calculated.

    Ok so I have the Ironside project rn, and haven't really even scratched the surface for what needs to be done, do you know or have some tips for doing a header panel swap, along with the front fenders? Also do you think I could run a second fuse box on the current factory alternator or would it be too much for it? Thank you for your time and help. Also any tips in general would be appreciated immensely
