Default I got this DCCD controller and now what?

i got the USDM OE DCCD controller, i called rallispec and they kindly told me what i have is pretty much useless cuz this is the auto control box. That i needed to source the DCCD wiring harness from an USDM STi. Which i know its near impossible because the harness is wrapped together with all the other wires, since i've helped doing a complete sti swap. So has any gurus out there figure this box out? Has anyone used the USDM OE DCCD controller to work with a WRX? maybe some custome wiring made?

HELP ME~

here is a pic of what i have: part number is 32520AA080

I'm pretty sure you need the STi ABS controller. As the DCCD wants wheel speed information to determine the best lock up when in Automatic mode. Somebody else should feel free to correct me though if I'm wrong. Someone had an STI trans swapped into a Forrester at some point, you may try looking around and contacting him.

its not useless but unless you can plug into it it is.

If you just want manual mode you can rig that up, give it power and ground, then you have to hook up the thumbwheel or just make a switch to feed the correct pin 5 volts to make it think the scroll is in lock and you will be 50/50. however for the money you likely paid you could have had a neetronics controller with an automode for less. PDXTuning has them if you are interested.

i ended up in your situation, just look in the sti manual and hook up all that is needed for the manual mode, auto is far beyond our reach..... that is unless you have a full crashed sti to strip to the bone....

It's about as much work wiring the Auto DCCD in as it is to do a WRX / STI engine swap in like an 93-01 Impreza. We converted Roundthebend's FXT from Automatic to 6 Speed (With Wheels, Brakes, Axles, Steering Rack, Xmember, Control Arms, Rear Sub assembly, STI Suspension, and then added STi Intake Manifold, uppipe, turbo, intercooler and reflashed STI ecu, and completely wired in the DCCD. We also made a custom dash harness to allow the STI gauge cluster to function properly. There was a rumor that the cluster was plug and play (Which IS NOT true). If you study the wiring diagrams for the cluster, There is not ONE single pin that shares a location between the STI and the FXT harness. The whole car functions just as it would in a 2004 STI (because it, for all intents and purposes, is a 2004 STI with a Forester shell). You can see some of the pictures here http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=847303

I will post up more from the build tomorrow if anyone is interested.

We were doing Erik's swap the same time Tom from Kartboy was doing his. Last I heard, tom had not decided to wire up the DCCD as it would take too much time. Origionally we had just planned to swap chassis harnesses, but the differences between the two harnesses was big enough that it would have been more work to switch the connectors for the Climate control system, door cords, Power Mirror (STI has the power mirror switch in the center console, where as teh FXT has it in the Drivers door), plus the FXT has seat heaters and the STI didn't. So it was easier to add the DCCD to the FXT harness than it would have been to adapt the FXT functions to the STi harness.
