Question apexi avc-r wont light up;(

I put my avc-r in today and im almost sure i have all the right wires going to where they are suppose to go, but there's only a small yellow orangeish light in the buttons.

did you buy this used? also if you hooked a wire up wrong it could have fried the whole set up. do you have the manual? if not im sure there is a trouble shooting guide somewhere online. Why not just go with ecu controlled boost and a good tune for about the price of a brand new avc-r?

OK I found out what was wrong, I had the ground wires taped in the the ecu ground wires so I moved them to a nut under the dash and it works fine. But now the unit is not reading RPM and I'm positive the wires are in the right spot now. Also I have an HKS turbo timer taped into the same RPM wire as the AVC-R and the tt reads RPM just fine. Could the problem be that I cant have both of them taped in the same wire? Also I got it brand new from Import Image Racing. LOL when I bout the AVC-R I wasn't really thinking about a ecu controlled boost.

you should have bought a patch harness so you didnt have to splice the factory wiring. If the rpms works for one and not the other get rid of the TT RPM wire its not a necessity. just set it for 40 secs and forget about it. usually tt's are just a convience, most of the time if you drive normal for the last mile or 2 after beating on your car, it cools down better then just letting it idle for a certain time.
