Default JB4 Install - 06-23-2013, 04:17 PM

Attempted to do a JB4 install today. Engine wouldn't start, all connections looked fine, so I decided to remove it. Well it turns out the small ECU connections got wedged into the small ECU harness. I can't just pull back the tab and have the gray/black connections come out. I have no idea how I'm going to get them unstuck. Anyone in the area have any tools that might help me?

Have a pic? By tabs you you mean the sliders? You can pop those off a certain way.

I was being a jackass and accidentally put the connectors backwards into the small ECU harness. Once I understood the connectors were backwards, it was incredibly difficult to get them back out. I'm sure they make some awesome tool that could have easily popped them out, but I ended up having to really work on the sucker. Finally got them out. Tab holders are pretty useless now, so I put on a little electrical tape to keep the connectors in the harness.

The project was harder than I expected, but I enjoyed myself, and once I'm done licking my wounds, I'll be right back under the hood tinkering with some other toy.

Just installed the JB4 the other day and i feel your pain... you need to make sure the arrows are facing the same way.. once i figured that out it was pretty easy from there. the power wire was the other pain... If you spend a few minutes looking at it its really easy. A few better pictures would help. Let me know where your hung up.
