NEED A GOOD ELECTRICIAN!

Postby TeamH2O » April 26th, 2011, 7:27 pm

OK Peeps, carried the beams vvt-i 3sge caldina engine and 5sfe auto tranny to wire up properly by DICK IN ARIMA OLD ROAD and he screwed me. He had the car doing nothing and using it up for 2 months and i just got fedup bcuz been trying to call him for days, he not home all of a sudden and rel setting me up.

So i am looking for someone who is straightfoward and serious and someone who knows their stuff.

Its the Caldina 3SGE Beams VVT-i Engine that came 4wd, and we used back the 5SFE Tranny thats 2wd. THey both looked the same however one had a transfer case and extra sensor.

After wiring up, had to change manually, then jacks had wired up the car to a point where it changes gear normal, put it on D and its an automatic, normal. Kickdown, normal.

Now after letting dick wire the power switch, so called what he was doing, and fixing a vibration it had, he instead kept it for 2 months, did NOTHING, now the O/D light is blinking and well, no kickdown, and no automatic gear changing, put it on L and it barely builds up and only on 3000rpm it work normal, drop it on 2, dead as if it jumps to 3rd gear, put it on D, and its like dead. From taking off on D, its like on 4th gear all the time. No kick down nothing.


So i need somone really good to sort out this mess.

I was gonna make a wisecrack about Dick screwing you, but I feel for you because I'm having a similar problem at the moment with a mechanic. I really did see your car in front his place pretty often the last couple mths and it was he that did the original wiring for my 20V swap for the previous owner, which I had to scrap out and re-wire myself because he left out several things and did some incorrectly...so yeah...you know ho wI feel about his work.

Have you sought out the usual electrical gurus? Doodnath in Aranguez, Ryan and Kunta in the Bamboo, Andy in Pasea, Bronze even?

hoss that sounding like your step motor/ or a sensor in the tranny.
Once your o/d light blinking it is indicating a tranny fault.
Get it scanned.

^^He did over some wiring and the tranny stopped working automatically and O/D Light is blinking. Before i carried it, the tranny was working perfect, no O/D Light.

The wiring with a beams 3sge and a 5sfe tranny is kinda tricky and so far the only people i've been thru that could get it to work is Jacks but he did not get the power mode to work, meaning it will rev to only 5400rpm. Its supposed to go up to 7800rpm, bcuz when it was now wired up, shifting manually went up to 7800.

THIS SMARTMAN DICK REL SCREW UP THE CAR

Not sure about your BEAMS 3S swap, but the stock 5S diagnostic port is standard Toyota OBD1 so if it's still intact, you can join TE1 and E1 and just look up the error codes online.

Carried the car by jacks, the only one out of a good few before such as ryan, kunta etc who got the transmission working. Jacks knows his work as well, and was right there close to me, so i might as well let the man who had teh car working tops, re-fix it.

Ok so i got the car back and Jacks has the car working back to normal, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th all working, OD works, drop it on 2 and L works like how it should.

Jacks is really a boss, he rewired the entire car back.

hai gaiz!

Need to find a good electrician for a buddy in Chaguanas area.

He wants to change out his B15 instrument cluster to one with a tachometer...bought the new cluster already, so it's just to find a good electrician to wire it in.
Any help would be appreciated.
