    Oh and I have a real cb accord rear fog button if you need one. But they go in the dash bezel same as the front fog so you’ll have to get a console button for the front fog. Like an integra one.

    Yo John! Hey did you have to cut a notch out of your bumper bar to fit the bumper pole in there? Or are you running the jdm style bumper bar? I’ve gotta mount one on my wagons bumper.

    If I recall correctly you cant use the s2000 because it has more then 2 posts and requires a different relay setup.


    John, Love the Bumper pole looks really awesome, congrats on getting it working oem style. I want one as well, hopefully another complete one pops up in the near future. Though my under dash fusebox plugs are also being taken up by my auto headlights, So may have to move that around

    Well what a productive few days it's been. Sally is finally done........ purring and sounding better too. (Minus the ignition / push button start thing. I think I'll be forced to go back to OEM because it won't fail like).

    Bumper pole is finished and fully functional. Was all OEM so it was easy to wire up
    - To have the light at the top function I created a power wire & an old connector so it will be plug and play in to the current plug. Using the 'heated seat' fuse location
    - Ran power and ground to the passenger side fuse box under the fender
    - Ran the switch to the center console

    *--------------

    Yellow wire on the last 2 pin connector.



    I need a rear fog light button.







    Your view...





    Bumper pole functional


    Purrrr




    The next thing will be to sand and paint the side skirts and rear lip which won't be too bad. Just takes time. Since I have no life and a few days to spare, I may tackle this. Really loving how the car has no leaks and is sounding better than before. Some head chatter but that's because it's old and used. Cheers.

    Ok. Sorted out the JDM bumper pole switch. The harness side that goes up by the drivers side takes 3 plugs on the fuse box. Dam. And in this pic I determined that the bumper pole light needs it's own 12V constant too. So I'll have to run some wires up to the fuse box and splice in a wire. And at least then I can put the bumper on.

    But the pole is pretty cool. With the relay setup it:
    - only works when the parking lights are on / or headlights
    - if you turn off the lights it auto retracts (if extended) (even without using the button)
    - the light does have a delay to it, which is cool too




    With all the "stuff" up front the wires get really confusing and should really be "loomed".

    - Low beam HID convert wire w/ shutter wire
    - High beam wire
    - Halo wires (split off some other wire)
    - Intersection OEM harness (interconnects with signal light bulb wires)
    - Bumper pole light with OEM harness

    Eventually my goal is to move the turbo piping and have fog lights in the bumper again.

    I have since switched back to the key and cylinder. I hated constantly having to press the brake to start it and then if it doesn’t start, you have to push the button and turn the car completely off to restart it again.

    I asked them for an update and bud said they shipped one last week. Very fast supportive response and didn't question anything. Good news there!

    but.... this also leads me to believe they are aware of the issue and just throw units at people now for a fix. That = bad news. If the new one works we can rip open the old one and see if its chinese crap on the insides....

    They replied to my email pretty quick and verified my address, but didn't say they were sending one. I emailed them again today, we'll see what they say.
    And still have that oil leak, but just a tiny tiny bit. Should of used more sealant on that end of the pan with the bow in it. Also have an exhaust leak but that's just a gasket.
    Now I have to put the whole front end together which takes a long time...

    Sounds like a promising start minus the oil leak. Sucks to hear about the start button, hopefully they will send you a new one to replace it.

    Sure enough... i go to start sally and the one thing that didn't work was the Jordan Push Button start. Simply had no power. Not sure why. Has 12V going to the "box/ecu" but that's it. I wrote them to see what they say.
    Sooo used the old key to get the job done.



    Start with fuel off.


    Start with fuel.


    2nd start and purr. lol... still has head noise clatter.


    looking good....​




    Have a jolly old oil leak over by the trans..... newb mistake.... let's fix it. Took the pan off and used some sealant along with the gasket, focused on that end / corners.






    Fix...




    All done... I'll let it cure and then test again.



    If all good then we'll put the traction bars / wheels back on and see if she moves. Next would be the bumper and JDM bumper pole install fini...

    Ok.. Almost time to start the show...




    We have to stuff all of this under the dash (drivers side) and plug in 3 power plugs and test the JDM bumper pole. (two of the plugs are already taken by my rear JDM light and A/F gauge)
    And the button needs to go in the center console which kind of sucks as I need to remove the center console or somehow run that wire...




    I need to get more coolant. Sigh*... always need more coolant. Then I guess I'll see what happens when she turns over without fuel. If no noises will give it some fuel and see what happens. This ....... all after...

    - engine out
    - converted to a auto tensioner system with new style manual tensioner
    - changed timing belt and all accessory belts
    - changed cam gear seals
    - changed oil pan seal
    - changed water pump
    - re-sealed transmission housing
