Default Hks Turbo Timer Type 1 Help Please

So I just finished hooking up my HKS turbo timer type 1 on my 07 wrx. I get the whole thing hooked up, works fine, the timer works great killed the car and everything, the kill on the e brake worked fine too. Go to take it for a drive to test out the other features and realize there is a problem. My speedometer isnt working, my check engine light is on and my cruise control light keeps flashing non stop. Strange part is that my speed is reading in km/h on my turbo timer so i know its hooked up to the correct wire. wtf! My rpm works fine on both the tt and the dash. Does anyone know why my speedomter wont work and my cel light is on and cruise control light is flashing? Im so lost and very aggravated, please help me out?

For the record it does a lot more than just be a turbo timer. With the type 1 You can do 0-60 times, 1/4 mile times, rev warnings etc there are some pretty cool features... and the solution was taking off the positive of the battery and just resetting the ecu. I had the negative off during the install but not the positive.

I agree about the turbo timers, theres more to them, than just cooling the turbo. Aftermarket turbos run hotter then your stock turbo, obviousley, so cooling them down only makes sense, and preserves life. As for your issue Im not sure what is going on, but I have a feeling you may have bought the km model. and did you try resetting the ECU prior to connecting the battery? Are you using a Harness, and if so which one?

Can you post pics of how you wired the speed and hand brake if it's not too much trouble. I'm using a Greddy Full Auto Turbo Timer, but I'm sure wiring is similar if not the same.

The hand brake is real easy, you just pop off the center console, find the only wire that goes to the e brake, splice and there you go. The RPM and the SPEED wires were a pain in the ass. What year subaru do you have? WRX/STI? It all depends. You need to find the correct ECU pinout per your car. I have an 07 wrx and I have to say it was nearly impossible to find them but a guy on WRXfanatics gave it to me thank god. In my opinion older models are easier to find... Once you find your specific ecu pinout just pop up the carpet on the passenger side, remove the metal plate on the floor and behind it is the ecu. Follow the diagram and splice the corresponding wires. If anyone needs the 07 wrx or sti pinout I have them. just send me a pm. Oh and the guy who said he pm'd me, i didnt get it....
