Default Aquamist 2d Installed Not Spraying

Hi, I just installed my Aquamist 2d system and it is not spraying. The green light blinks and the red light comes on solid when I hit about 8 pounds of boost. The only problem is that when I have the nozzle on the windsheild I see no mist. Any help woold be great. The aquamist forums are down right now and I can't get ahold of Richard either. Thank you. Philip.

Forum will still be down for another week due to bugs on the lastest version.

The manifold pressure switch is set to 10psi from the factory. You can unplug one of the terminal from the pressure switch, simulating a 10 psi boost.

You can also email me directly at [email protected] for a quicker reaponse.

If you turn the screw on the pressure switch does it change when the water sparys? Also, I did unplug a plug from the pressure switch and nothing happened.

Do you have one of our latest system with new loom? the loom comes with a water level sensor.

Could you ground the brown wire to the HSV and let me know if there are water spray? This will open up the HSV 100%.

I grounded the brown wire and that car died. Also, when the red light becomes solid the car feels like it bogs and the pump makes a very loud noise. I thought that I primed it correctly. Let me know what this means.

This is not normal especially the water jet was not spraying internally.
Please check if you has hooked up the red and green wire is spliced in the right place.
If you disconnect the green wire, the green led led should not blink. If it does, you may have wired the red wire to the wrong side of the fuel injector.

If the pump makes a loud noise, the priming is not done completely. Loosen the blanking plug on the 806-201 manifold and let all the air out and retighten it.

Did you connect the fault led on the dash so I can have a easier task of finding the fault. (led between orange and red wire)

I snipped the green wire and the LED was blinking. Does this mean all I have to do is switch where the wires are connected? Also, I do have the LED wired for the blocked jet.

It looks like the red wire is hooked up to the "pulsed" side of the injector.

Please remove the red wire and hook it up to any switched 12V source. If the pulsing stops. Connect the green wire.

Okay, I just connected the red wire to the 12v switched and the green back to where it was and then I tested the system and it sprays! Thank you so much. Also, what is a good psi to have the water start spraying at? I will be boosting up to 15 psi - 18 psi. Thank you again Richard.

I am glad it worked. I have almost run out of ideas.

The 2d can spray at idle if you want, the duty cycle is about 0.001%. But I wouldn't do it to often as the small throttle opening means you will be collecting some water in your intercooler.

I guess you can start at 5psi - no ill effect or over water since it will only follow the FIDC.
