Hey guys, I wonder if any of you have had a similar install issue with a Woolich USB tuner as I have. I am trying to install it right now and the pins wont stay in the ECU plug. I have done everything exactly like the instructions on the website say, but the two wires that you are supposed to plug into the back of the grey ECU harness dont lock in. I removed the 2 white plastic pins that were in the holes 66 and 67, then I slide the connectors in. They stay a little because of the rubber weather seal, but if I pull back they come right out. There are no locking tabs. My wires are pictured. Any suggestions?

On the yellow wire you can see a small tab, but it is bent inward. That is how it came from Woolich. They other was not closed properly and was bent. Do you think I need to bend that tab outward?

I have no idea, but I will trade you a lizard that wanted to come in out of the rain for your Woolich :biggrin:

Yes, bend the loving tabs posed a bit to help it catch better. Just be careful not to bend/flex then too much so that they break off

Yes, I know that's important and I confirmed it was in correctly and on the first time. Since then, I've tried all other ways.

As I'm sure you've seen it... but on the off chance you haven't:

You should have a little metal tang on the connector that is slightly angled upwards. This piece slides in when pushed forward but pops back out to prevent it from coming back out when pulled from the wire side. If it slides back out, rotate it 180* and that locking tab should be in the correct position.

Just an idea on how the tabs work. Not to scale or anything.

But the tab slides over the little bump in the ECU connector and prevents it from sliding out. If the tab is facing up there is nothing preventing it from pulling out. Rotating it 180° usually fixes this.

And then to remove the connectors a small flat blade jewelers can be used to prop that tab up temporarily. While holding that tab up, pull the rear wire out and the tab will miss the bump inside the ECU connector letting it be removed.

When pushing the terminals into the slots do they actually travel the full distance and get to the same level as the rest of the terminals in the plug?

Yup. They should sit flush in order to make contact with pins 66/67 on the ECU that are the same height/length as all the other pins on the ECU.

I had not removed the blue cover for the ECU plug. It has tabs for each slot that were blocking the terminals when I pushed them in. I removed the cover and then was able to push them in all the way. So it was totally my fault.

But the very strangest part, the little terminals didn't have the little angled up tab. I've worked with these connectors before on other bikes and other none bike stuff. But they still clipped in. I was/am confused

That'll do it.

Glad you got it figured out :) :thumbsup:

Yea, I'm very happy to be able to tune my TC. It's way too invasive right now. Turning it down in first grade will be a big help

Yeah the blue cover needs to be removed. :lol: glad you've sorted it. :smile:

Yeah the tabs aren't really needed. Mine was the same.
