Default F90 JB4 Instalation - 05-23-2019, 07:51 PM

Help! Got my unit today and connected Bluetooth. Got confused when connecting the wastegate cables. It would seem the longer wastegate cable would connect to passenger side, however, it does not contain the extra black wire. The shorter cable does??? Fellow member stated Payam told him to connect the longer cable to passenger side though Terry’s instructions say that extra black wire cable (shorter) should connect to passenger wastegate.
Please advise. Would like to get completed this weekend. Thx

The EWG cables are roughly the same length from what I recall. Sure you placed the box on the driver side?

Yes, drivers side. The cable with extra black wire is clearly shorter. Others have also noted and therefore installed extra black wire cable to drivers side. Help

I'll update the install guide, sorry about that!

Your harness has a red wire on the longer EWG cable, that's the one that will go to the PASSENGER*** side.
