I'm currently at the stage of wiring up my Soliton in my RX8 conversion.
I'm getting myself into a bit of a pickle with the drive by wire system on the RX8 and how to make it work with the speed/pedal input on the Soliton. I need help!!!
My original idea was to steal the signal from the throttle body but it turns out the PCM (ECU) and traction control interfere far to much to get a good response.
I'm know looking to tap into the pedal directly before the ECU gets chance to interfere!
Only problem now is I can't find any diagrams on the internet and cant work out how it is wired up.
The pedal has a 6 pin connector, I assume it is 2* 3 pin pots or hall effect sensors.
While testing the pedal in the car I couldn't see any variation with voltage or resistance between any of the connections when the pedal position is changed.
So I took the pedal out the car and took it home to test. pictures are below
I have soldered 6 wires to the pins to allow me to easily connect the multimeter. I'll replace these with the original connector once I knowhow it works!
The picture above shows the resistance (in K ohms) between each pin. this doesnt change, nor does the voltage if I put 5V onto it.
Has anybody got any ideas!?
Many many thanks in advance!
