Question TXS Dtec-BC

I recently had the Txs dtec boost controler installed on my car. I noticed last night a clicking coming from the engine bay(while engine is off). I open the hood and listen and the solenoid is going crazy. This is with the key in the full off position and out of the ignition. I looked through the dtec gauges and the solenid duety cycle is jumping back and forth from 0 to 99.9%. Finding this very odd i looked through the other gauges finding the TPS jumping back and forth from 0 to about 5%. my guess is the TPS to DTEC is wired incorrectly. Has anyone else had a problem like this? Any ideas or insight would begreatly appreated.

I sounds to me like you have the power lead wired to a continuous 12V source. It should be going to a 12V source that is switched off with the key.

Anything new on this case? I have the DTEC ProBC and it does the same...except, mine is hooked into the ignition like it is suppose to be....in the on/ign position, the solenoid starts clicking away...my cousin, who had his installed by the same installer the previous week in the same exact way doesn't have the clicking...

Upon calling TurboXS and my Tuner...both stated that it was a 50/50 chance...some boost solenoids click away once powered on, the other 50% doesn't...

If anyone has an explanation for this, I would appreciate it...I really don't know which one is better...at least with mine, I know the boost solenoid is working...but at the same time...wear and tear for nothing...as I often have to sit in my car with my stereo on...

Thanks,

I bet that after about 2 minutes of the ignition being off it stops right? That's about how long it takes for the ECU's to power off and remove power from the solenoid.

You can check to see if the TPS is hooked up right by seeing if the TPS reads within the DTEC.

It's not a 50/50 thing it's how you have them setup. Try changing the crossover point from 0 tps to something possitive and also change the before crossover setting to be 0 duty cycle. Hey presto, below crossover no clicking
