Default Cooling Mist LED

I have a yellow Coolingmist LED installed to my clog nozzle detector. On the web page it says that when methanol is flowing the led should blink and when there is a clog it will constantly be lit. For me it is constantly lit. How can I check if it is clogged? Is there anyway to make it spray without driving the car?

You could put pressure in the tube going to the controller with the ignition on and the car off. If you don't take the nozzle out of the intercooler(or whatever) while doing this, you might end up with a problem. From the way the light is describved, it would seem that the pressure in the tubing going to the sensor is not reaching the required amount for it to say that things are cool. There are settings on it though, and you might wanna try puting it on a lower setting to see if you're getting a lower amount of pressure. I'm not sure what the settings on it are though(different psi levels), or what yours is set to, but it shouldn't be set above 40psi unless your system never goes that low. The minimum pressure for good atomization is 40psi(from what I've heard), and that's why I say it should be set at 40 if possible.

peace

Bypass the controller and ground the system manually. Pull the TMIC or IC piping, depending on your setup, so that you can see the nozzle. Ground the system by touching it to say the strut top bolts and it should spray. Ignition has to be on for this.

I realized that the led was not wired correctly so I wired it right. I ran the line that sprays to the nozzle over my windsheild. When the meth sprayed the led would light like it is supposed to but all of a sudden it stopped working. I checked the led and it is still good. What could I do?

chech the ground from the detector. That happened to me and the ground was the problem. FWIW, my CND is off all the time unless it is spraying (flowing above whatever the factory setting on the flow detector). When it is flowing, it is lit constantly. When not flowing, nothing. I don't know about flashing for a clogged nozzle. I would think that the detector doesn't "know" when there is a clog, only if it sees flow, or doesn't.

Where is yours grounded? Is it grounded by itself or with other wires?

since it's so close to the battery, I grounded mine there for good measure. Mine has worked flawlessly.

You sure that isnt backward? I believe its on solid if its flowing, and blinks if theres a clog.

it is supposed to light constantly when there is flow, and im not sure when it clogs im pretty sure just as someone else said it just doesnt light up since there is no flow.

it is a very simple wiring job ... and yours was working correctly.

since it isn't now I would say check all your connections and double check their accuracy. also check the led to see if it works, connect a battery to it to see if it lights

I just put my CND in yesterday and I'm sure everything is wired correctly but the LED only lights when I hit the max PSI spray. I have it set to min at 14psi and max is at 21psi but the light only comes on at 21lbs and not 14...whats that about?

Best way i have found to check it is to disconnect the hose from the nozzle and route it to the windshield. Drive the car it should spray at your settings.
You can also watch your egt guage, the temp should fall when it is working.
Once you know that then you can tell if it is working with your LED flashing or constantly on. You may have it wired incorrectly.
