Default Question about S-AFC installation..

Hi. I was just curious about one part of the S-AFC installation. The two grounding wires, the brown is closer to the ECU and the black is further. The manual says 1 CM apart, does it have to be 1 CM or can it be slightly more than that? I'm just wondering if its "At least 1 CM" or "exactly 1 CM". Thanks.

They need to be grounded at separate points as per the instructions. Just ground anywhere from 1 to 3 cm apart.

Thanks, I did that and the rest of the install. However..

When I put the car into accessories mode, the SAFC lights up the buttons (ie has power) but displays nothing on the screen. When I try to turn the car on, the car starts to idle speed, dies, starts to idle speed, dies, throws a CEL, and I assume would repeat the same idle-->die process over and over until I stopped it, which I did after 2-3 cycles. And I still had no display on the AFC. Luckily I had put in a DB9 plug for the purpose of making a dummy plug incase I wanted to remove the AFC, so luckily my car is still functional with the MAP wires reconnected.

Anyone have any idea why its doing this? Probably one wire is not correct..I need the wiring diagram for a 2002 RS incase they changed something from the MY 2001s.
