I'd recommend zooming in on what your doing in your video's and maybe upping the volume as I can't really hear what your saying

Please can you make a thread, either here or on Openinverter, add plenty of pics, diagrams, etc. There are plenty of folks who can help you through it.

I've been working with these units for a few years now and know many of the pitfalls.
I updated my thread with where I'm at

part two of what it takes to get the GS340h motor to spin with proper sound

This is really great work. This would be very handy on the Openinverter forum (I know you've put some of it on there). I haven't followed DIYElectricCar in years, but man I used to spend hours on here!

I'm going to have to dive back in. btw, you know me as PatrcioEV-ATX on Openinverter.

thanks Patrick I am building up my thread on Open Inverter as well but I am hesitant about some content as you don't bring sand to the desert, so two different audiences I think, I mean those guys reversed engineered this stuff, and I barely know the difference between a cable and a wire, ha ha.

Fun Fact: among the 3,754 different and I mean completely different plugs and connectors on this vehicle (the Lexus GS450h) apparently their designers ran out of steam and decided to use three identical ones, and I mean absolutely samesies for the following three components, which mind you live within a foot of each other
  • Power Steering ECU
  • Oil Pump Motor Controller
  • Front Stabilizer Control ECU
no I am not taking the time to post this because I chased down and pulled the wrong harness [ahem] three times

so off of the external auxiliary electronic "oil" / transmission fluid pump we see three plugs coming off of it, both of the larger ones towards the end of the harness plug into the oil pump controller, the tiny third one, midway in the harness is what we are after

if you bought the transmission wiring harness you are in luck, it comes with the matching plug and wire harness, it's a two (pink (or faded red) & brown) wire harness that ran to the ECM's smaller plug

I snipped the brown wire, it ran to the Transmission Shift Solenoid plug on the opposite side of the transmission
