Having the red LED lit a little is normal. Not having it get bright when you push the red button is not normal...

When you push the Blue button, does the Blue LED illuminate?

Take the time to inspect every connection made during the install. If you are decent with a wiring diagram, the one in the install manual will help you narrow down which connections may be giving you trouble.

Be sure that the pins installed in the PCM connectors are fully inserted and look like the original pins that were there before the install.

Be sure that the couple connections that required soldering were soldered and not twist/taped, or scotch-lok'ed or any other quick-n-easy method.

It should be a simple fix once the problem is found.

Yeah, I'm having the same problem... my IC LED is working fine... But my H.O. LED doesn't light at all. Not dimmed or Bright after pushing the H.O. Switch. Everything is Soldered properly and taped off with electrical tape. The D.A.B. works perfect as well...

The only thing that doesn't seem to work is the H.O. LED/Switch.

Let me know if you found a fix for your problem.

rather then making a new thread, i'll just bump this one back up..........


I was having the same problems, and i went ahead with dale's advice, and went back over the wire's...... All of them were hooked up great but the yellow wire in the #3 connector wasnt pushed all the way forward.. i guess i pushed it up the first time, but not enough to make it "click" locking it in place so the pin pushed it back down or something...

But now my high octane light stays on real dim like all the time...
When i push it in, it just lights right up, and stays lit until i push it again and then it goes back to dim again........

So here are my questions, please bear with me.
I was under the assumption that if you did NOT have 100 octane in and you pushed that button, the led would flash at you telling you your a retard; until you pushed it again turning it off. Am i wrong on this? cause mine will stay lit up at idle if i push that button.

Second, is it suppose to sound different if you push that button on 91 octane? i mean do you hear somthing change over as your car attempts to advance timing, or is it un-noticeable...


thanks guys for humoring me.........

Your assumption is semi-correct.
If you do not have 100 octane in, and push the button, the PCM will swap to the new fuel/boost/timing surface. If the PCM detects knock, it will toss you out of that surface, blink the light, and set long term timing retard. Any time knock is detected in the race gas mode, that will happen, regardless of the octane in the tank. It is saving itself... it's a good thing.

For the most part, it is unnoticible, at least at less than WOT. Do it at WOT and you'll feel the difference, until there is knock, and it tosses you out of racegas mode.

Right answer for this question:) !!!!!!!!

Dim all the time is normal. Light will stay on bright when switched on. Until you drive the car hard. See, it will advance timing , which you will not notice, unless you make the car knock, by hammering the throttle.

The car doesn't really "detect" the octane. It deduces the lack of 100 octane by detecting detonation. If it detonates, it knows your fuel mojo is weak:) THEN it blinks.

from my understanding/expirience, the red led will flash if the computer detecs knock and it will automaticall take you out of h.o. mode. the led flashes to let you know what is happening.

as far as at idle it is fine because there is no knock detected so it will stay solid.

i have not noticed any change when switching to h.o. mode
