Default vortech BTM installing on a civic

the car turns & turns,
when I change the ground area...to a different spot it turns & starts for a sec. then dies,

thanks

lol...yea,
it just dont work man,
I'm having my mechanic come down in about an hour to look at it,

you guys are ------ retarded to post & have no facts/info with your posts,
why would you post & have nothing to say?

do you guys read the rules?

I'm trying to get help & you guys arent doing nothing but wasting my time.

The large yellow wire going into the coild plug is usaully 12v switched from ignition. use it to power the btm. If this doesn't work the btm is broken
thanks alot for the respond...things you've said,(i havent tried)
but you didn't name all the wires out...heres what I've gotyou said)

black - ground
red - 12 volt source
white - coil + w/black & yellow wire
orange
there is no yellow wire,but I have a red & orange,,,


I think I may be lost...I have 4 wires,black,red,white,orange
black - ground
red - 12volt source
orange?
white?

my mechanic came by & hooked it up,even tried tricking the ecu & module by doing some crazy things,
even hooked up a second coil & used a test light,
anyways,
its a points btm,which my civic doesn't use points ignition,
the vortech btm dont havethe magnetic pickup,(which I need)

so I either need another box or a I could use a 12volt relay...(whatever he said)

but...
I am willing to try what you said,
because its somthing we havent tried & I dunno....
but if you had a clear detail about the other wire....wires,
I would give it a shot,
I was just about to sell it & buy another one with a magnetic pickup...

thanks
