Scott -

Darn! Thought I had it.

You said: What is that separate black wire you did there? An auxiliary ground? Going to the blue wire?

That's a ground wire going directly to the battery. It came that way from the manufacturer. Don't know how it connects in the afxied harness.

IMHO the best choice would be to pull your HES out and send it out to GSAddict to be rewired.

I plan to send him mine to replace the wires and keep it as a spare.

I read up on the work and its something I'm perfectly capable of, so I ordered the oven control wire from McMaster-Carr and I'll re-write my HES myself.

I found some old threads on Pelican (2006/2007) where guys were describing the same problems I'm having. They changed coil, TPS, Throttle Position, O2, Fuel filter/lines - none of it seemed to solve the problem. Like mine, it initially ran better but then the problem returned. Neither of the OPs did injectors or the HES. Those threads are what made me move the HES ahead of doing the coil/wires like I initially planned. I'm still going to change the fuel filter and swap the in tank parts just due to age/mileage.

I'll update with HES wire condition when I get into it (its been too wet here to work on stuff).
