newbie in need of pros
This is my first time hooking up hho to my car so if a say something stupid then thats whySmile. I believe i installed the hho system correctly. I have that new dryer and cell combo here is the link( http://www.advancedhho.com/product-p/dc45sys.htm ) to see what i have.

I pretty muched followed the electrical wire diagram to a t expect i wired every thing to be in the cab. So i started with the red wire coming from the generator going straight to the ammeter, easy! But the ammeter has two posts a negative and a positive. So i placed two wires on that post, one from the generator then one going to the relay. Did i do that right? Just to let you know i ran a negative wire from the battery to the cabin and i spliced all the connections that needed a ground to that wire. Is that okay?... Continuing from where i left off at the ammeter, i then took a negative wire and ran it from the ammeter and spliced it to the ground i ran from the battery. Is that okay? Now i take the service switch and wire a red wire to the relay positive post, now there are two red wires that are on the switch.

I got one wired to the relay and the other i spliced into the wire coming from the generator. I dont know how to read the diagrams i have been seeing diagrams thats say to wire that wire to the fuel pump relay or wiper motor i really don't know how to do that and i have seen no videos with my setup (my car or wiring everything in the cab) so i spliced that wire to the wire coming in the cabin. Is that okay? Please help me! I see instructions saying put this here but no pictures anywhere showing how to run a wire to a relay in the car so it can have a power source that cuts on only when the ignition is turned on.

Next I took the negative wire for the relay and i spliced it with the negative wire I have coming directly from the battery. Next i ran the red wire from the relay to the breaker. Then i ran the other posts red wire directly to the battery. Comments welcomed!Smile

I have a efie for my 4 cylinder honda accord 99, I believe i have hooked that up preety good i found the signal wire for the front and back oxygen sensors. The only problem is the red and green ligts stay on when i cut the car of and when im turning the knobs to lean the fuel. Let me tell you how i wired it. The sensor part of the wiring i think i got down pretty good, but its how i wired the power that worries me. I ran the power wire from the efie to the wire coming into the cab comming from the generator and the groung from the efie to the ground comming straight from the battery. If i was suppose to run that to a source that cuts on and off with the ignition, i made a mistake bc i thought it would be okay.

If i was wrong please give me a detailed way to hook it up to something that will cut it off when i cut off the car. I'm worried when i leave the car the efie and the hho system will still be running. Before i wrote this i unhooked the leads on the battery so nothing is getting power to it neither the efie or the generater circuit. But when i disconnected the leads and left the leads on that go to the battery that came with the car and tried to start it up. It would not turn over. You are my last resort, i am thinking about returning thee whole system. Please help me with the issues i am having!

RE: newbie in need of pros
As far as the EFIE wireing, find your fuse box inside the vehicle. use a test light and find a fuse that when you turn the ignition on, the light comes on...and when you turn the ignition off, the light goes off. Hook the EFIE positive power wire to that fuse. You can do this by removing the fuse and pushing the wire into the receptical where the fuse plugs in and then replaceing the fuse. They also make a conector that has a blade to install the wire via a female blade conector that goes into the fuse slot with the fuse. As for the install of your system, maybe you can draw up a wireing diagram on what you did and post it on here....that would help and someone might be able to give you some pointers.....good luck, dont give up.

RE: newbie in need of pros
So IF I understand correctly you have all the components including the generator in the cab with you? If so that's not a good idea. You don't want to risk HHO leaking into your cab.

The ammeter has two posts yes, the positive post should be wired to the battery and the negative to the relay where the power eventually gets to ground through the relay, circuit breaker and battery.
Running a ground wire is not necessary and can in turn be confusing. Your wiring will be grounded through the battery. The only thing you want wired to the negative battery terminal is the ground for the generator.
A good wire to tap into for powering the efie and whole system is the fuel pump relay. This is a black wire with a yellow stripe. I tried to post some pictures to help you find this wire but was unable to. I think I can email them to you and I will try. As for your vehicle not turning over I'm not sure what you did to make that happen but that will need to be addressed too, without being there in person I cannot offer any advice as to what happened with your wiring that would cause your engine to not turn over. Hope this helps.
