I EVERYONE, I SEARCHED THE FORUM FOR THE ANSWER BUT NO POST HAS THE ANSWER IM LOOKING FOR. I AM TRYING TO CONNECT THE GREEN/YELLOW WIRE FROM MY TEMP SENSOR TO MY ANALOG PORT ON MY PCV, SO I CAN GET TEMPERATURE READINGS ON MY POD-300 lcd screen. THE PROBLEM IS THAT I HAVE TO KNOW THE VOLTAGE THAT THE TEMP SENSOR IS AT WHEN ITS AT A CERTAIN DEGREES. IM MAKING IT A 9 VALUE TABLE. SO VALUE NUMBER ONE IS GOING TO BE COLD AT 0 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT JUST NEED TO KNOW THE VOLTAGE FOR 0 DEGREES (PRETTY MUCH WITH THE BIKE TURNED ON BUT NOT RUNNING).

I DONT HAVE VOLTMETER TO CHECK OUT THE VOLTAGE IT IS RELEASING MYSELF. IF ANYONE HAS THESE VALUES IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

and therein lies the problem. like said, its fed back through the ecm. I really hope you figure it out, i wasted A LOT of time on this.

Judging by the question of "does resistance mean volts?", im going to go ahead and presume you have 0 electrical (of any sort) knowledge (besides 'electricity is dangerous'), so its going to be rather hard for you to do this, but...

there.
that is literally all you need to convert said resistance to a voltage that the PCV/POD can read.


Also, in texas, i hope your grom never reaches 0ºF.
However, it will run. I had mine out on the ice this past winter on a couple sub-0 days.

My suggestion? Throw money at it aka buy the Opmid gauge and be done with it.

thank you for the link. i have thrown money at it, thats why i have the power commander POD-300 to show me the temp. just having trouble configuring it.

Energy is always conserved.
Look! I can state very basic laws that vaguely relate to the subject at hand and dont really at all help, just like you.

Maybe we can get Wibbly (who basically just educated/owned everyone on AC rectification here) to comment on this and move forward with the PCV reading the temperature.

problem is, the signal from the ecu through the sensor back is all over the place, i tried this but gave up and just spent the 70 bucks on the gauge.

if you want to know the scale of a thermal transducer just get it from the manufacturer. to extrapolate it requires equipment you certainly don't have.

even dynojet cant get it from honda, thats what they told me when i talked to them.
