Omex 600 Wiring Gti6
Posted 13 December 2015 - 12:52 PM
I've brought a omex 600 loom off a old spoox car which looks great. I've traced a lot of the wiring and worked 90% out ok. I had to move the starter wire from the 9 pin to the 6 pin plug as that was different.
The part I really can't get my head around is the fuel pump wiring. The loom doesn't appear to be wired as per the manual which is where I'm lost
I have the relay with 2 wires left to connect pin 87 which is connected at the min to a length of yellow wire presumably from the car with wire number 76a
And pin 30 of the relay just has a trial of wire.
Now I'm assuming the main feed for the ecu is comming in through these wires as nothing else goes to anything 12v

Pin 87 should be the fuel pump wire from the car, found on the brown plug near the matrix (white wire 76) Pin 30 is 12v from the battery, I ran mine off the shunt box. There should also be a 1 amp fuse in the live circuit to protect the ecu.

Maybe buying a prebuilt loom wasn't the easiest option lol

Pin 86 should be the Omex signal wire blue/white. Have a search for the omex installation guide pdf it tells you all you need to know.

I.e doing some more investigation it would appear my power relay has the injectors wired to 87a middle pin and the coils to 87 so by my working it wouldn't work as it is as it would only energise either the coils or injectors

OMEX's own diagrams used to show the ECU powered from the ignition feed and the pump relay had two outputs, one to the pump, one to power the injectors and coils. They've revised that recently to separate pump and injector/coil power relays, but both switched to earth through the ECU.
It's anybody's guess as to how your loom was originally, it's not unusual for lazy or ignorant installers to group all the power feeds together, so the relay is effectively by-passed. I'd advise you download the OMEX 600 manual http://omextechnolog...Manual 2v01.pdf as the advised wiring layout is pretty clearly laid out and make sure you're conforming.
Edit: Just noticed the printed copy in your picture, but even so, might be worth referring to the latest edition.

Looking at the diagram it shows a 4 pin relay on the power side the way mine was wired was the injectors came from pin 87a and the coil from pin 87 am I right in thinking that would mean either the injectors OR the coil would work as once the relay is energised then the power will go to 87 rather than 87a
I think I'm just going to start again with the relays anyhow better to be safe than sorry but as it came from a running car I'm just trying to work out if I've got the right idea or not lol
And yes a lot of my 12v are joined together also no fuse etc so I'll look at that also

General/common relays use 87 and 87a as dual output's, you can get other's which have different pin configurations but most relays inc all the ones on the car use what I call the std type.
Using looms that have been installed on other car's is normally a bloody nightmare and easier to start again by the time you have figured out what they have done, also looks like old wires been used as well

Yeah wouldn't go down this route again as I've spent the morning checking it all as it doesn't add up so probably building from scratch would of been easier.... Or getting you to do it would of been easier still lol

As said depends on relay, Most 87 and 87a allow 2 outputs on the same circuit current depending, the main thing allot of people get wrong is the switched Neg side of the relays

So by my understanding the way it would work here is that if have power to the injectors on ignition but when cranking/running I'd have power to the coils.
So either I need a relay where 87a and 87 are powered at the same time or have both injectors and coils comming from 87

Thanks for all the help

Just had a thought what do I do with the Rev counter. As the wiring is removed with my old engine loom.
The omex loom I have is fitted with a spoox tacho adaptor already wired into the coils. Does the wire just go to my rev counter (well through the original brown plugs) so therefore making the original sender in the gearbox redundant?

crank sensor is so the ecu knows the engine is turning, and how fast.
adapter simply converts the wasted spark trigger back to the same signal as the old 8v single coil, as the original tacho doesn't work with the signal from the ecu.

I'm using a digital dash so no need for the cable etc as the speedo will run off a new speed sensor.
Posted 19 December 2015 - 08:25 PM
12v and Earth to Rev Counter, normally the blue/white wire (I think) from the Omex goes to the Rev counter, Why a adaptor is fitted, no idea as the counter is dead simple to mod and a more reliable way to do it
If going that far I'd look at a after market counter, more accurate for a start
