Starting issues with 6-pos

Hey all,
Have a TS 6-pos in Big Red that gives starting fits on a fairly consistent basis. You will turn the key to start, but the Wait To Start won't come on and the fuel pump won't kick on. You have to try key off and on a few times to get everything to work.
It's been happening ever since we put the 6-pos on, just been dealing with it for the last few years. Finally figured I better figure this out.

Oh, we soldered a little extra tin on the circuit board where the chip presses on to see if that might help. Not much, just enough to beef it up a bit. Then gently filed all connections to the same height. Yes, we were very careful and used an appropriate wattage iron to prevent damage to the board.


Thanks all!

Re: Starting issues with 6-pos

Still sounds like a connection issue with the chip and board. I had a similar issue and ended up having to send my board to bill at power hungry to get it fixed.

Re: Starting issues with 6-pos

Yep, sounds like a connection issue to me. Did you solder/tin the board yourself or have an electronic repair shop do it?

We offer this service as well, if the solder job turns out to be the problem.

Also, check the prongs on the chip to make sure they aren't bent.

Re: Starting issues with 6-pos

I did, figured if I had fixed 20 or so Int'l 4700-4900 gauge clusters for poor solder joints I could tackle it, maybe I was wrong. Or perhaps the issue is in the chip, as it never did it with the old one? No bent prongs when I last checked. What does such a service set a guy back?

PM or e-mail me for pricing. Can't post that info in open forums per forum rules.

Could be the chip as well. You may want to call TS and see what they say to do as far as testing it.
