Default dccd wiring experiances... who actually has done it OG

okay. so who has a OG dccd setup and wired it up themselves?

my original clip harness was mising the DCCD switch plug. that was it. it also had a completely differnt dccd wiringsetup, most dccd from my understanding is one giant thin harness that has 1 wire each coming out of 2 grey plugs that go from the right foot side interior fusebox kick. it snakes across, clips to dccd computer, out to transmission and then to switch.

MY dccd setup has the computer wired insomwhere directly from the main cross bundle and doesnt have the seperate bundle setup.

im guessing mine was so early in the DCCD game that they tried to intergrate it into everything, or on the late side and had the buggers intergrated in.

i have a full DCCD entire chassis harness to fit my setup (sti-RA ver2 vlimited), but i dont really feel like tearing my dash out and spending a whole day swapping the entire harness in (and crossing my fingers and hoping i didnt miss a plug somewhere) just for a DCCD.

if you have wired up a dccd, It would be greatly appreciated to comment on my observances and perhaps suggest some things to me to try.

i could splice in the dccd bits into the main fusebox kick, then re route and replace the existing wiring into the trans for inpiuts and feed the computer and then feed the switch. all i am stinkin missing is that stupid plug to be able to control my diff lock.

in all honestly, leaving the computer brain in auto is the fastest way around the track, but it kills me to have every stinkin part and not be able to wire in my switch. That and a roof scoop is all I really need to have a complete Sti-RA.

i have everything. i.e. 2 DCCD harnesses (one in the car missing the stupid dial switch, one outside but differnt setup as pictured and described) - screw rallispec. too expensive. good but too rich for my blood.

i have EVERYTHING, just need to wire it in. looking for anyone who has experiances messing with both intergrated and non intergrated dccd harness segments.

so what is the DCCD computer for if its not auto? ive heard that before but it dosnt make sense to me. why have a seperate computer for it if it dosnt think. they'd just use a little controller in the switch liek all those ebay kits

The Ver2 DCCD Setup is incredibly easy to wire... Basically all plug and play. Just have to add two pins into the fuse box (Which shouldn't be occupied in your Fuse Box, I know they weren't occupied in the WRX RA Swap we did into a legacy), and you have to hook inline with the brake master cylinder (for a Parking Brake input) and then a couple of grounds. The controller box mounts under the seat on the left side of the car (Passenger side if it's JDM, Drivers Side if it's a USDM). It is not necessary to have the gauge cluster for the DCCD to work. There's also a Relay that you're missing that should be attatched to the harness.

The WRX RA, Ver 1 and Ver 2 STI's were all handbuilt which is why the harness in the pic is so big. It was designed to add on to an Already built car (To make an STI, they took an already built WRX and shipped it to STI, where they modified the already built WRX, instead of just building it as an STI from the beginning). With the Ver 3 and newer, the DCCD was all integrated into the bulkhead harness, as the cars were no longer handbuilt by STI, they were produced on an assembly line.

It's my understanding that the Control Box is so that it can output the position of the switch to the gauge cluster and instead of sending straight voltage to the center diff, it sends a duty signal. If you've got two of these complete harnesses with the controller (I'm more interested in the one minus the switch and connector if it's one of the "add-on" harnesses), Would you want to sell?

We've wired the 2004 STI Auto DCCD System into a Forester XT (Was about as much work as an engine swap) and we've done the simple V2 DCCD install. We've got expierience with both systems.

mike-

have you any experiance with the v3+ styles? i have a v2 in my car right now (late model 95 STi-RA ver 2 V-limited), that has that setup. everything is properly functioning, i simply couldnt find the dccd knob wire. tahts why my dccd setup is not working. my dccd computer was in the dash in the same location as the Version 3 RA (broke down one of those clips as well).

any idea on the ver3 style (as you are calling it) dccd wiring setup?

i would be interested in selling the add on style complete harness if i can get my existing one to power the switch. id love to not have to swap entire harnesses - which is what im pondering doing right now.

rather tear out everything and replace all the wires int eh car, then to risk the chance of fubar-ing 2 extremely rare wiring harnesses that are COMPLETELY uncut.
i believe(or have a hunch that) the DCCD business on my V-limited was run from the side R1 plug (not the front ). very un-alike every other person ive talked to about the dccd wiring.

show us your skills mike!

there is no auto setting on the early DCCD controllers. Mine is a VIII controller. I have two wires for power. Two wire to the DCCD and three wires for the thumb switch. And Two wires for the ebrake. The rest of the wires are only for displaying the position of the switch. It's pretty stupid really since I can see where it is anyway. Funny thing is that I have the lights in the cluster for the original Auto tranny.......

If I had to do it again I'd put a 12V switch on the dash. Dif on. Diff off. And I'd wire it into the ebrake also. Ebrake slides. nice.
