Default ELD burnt up??

well guys i recently recieved a 88HF rolling shell.

i installed a d16z6 w/ p28
xenocron conv harness
d16z6 dist
HF harness


i was havin main relay problems but found it to be the number 14 fuse which is something about alternator i think

well i fixed that i left the key on for a sec to make sure everything was good and they i started to smell electrical burning

after panickin seein smoke under the hood i turn key off and pop hood.
it was comming from the ELD it was very hot

so i try it again, doesnt smoke or doesnt get hot anymore

but i have a hardstarting problem now.. i cant seem to have enough juice to turn the car over with. i can even put jumpers on it w/ another car and it still goes one or two revolutions then click click click

think it has something to do w/ the smoking eld? what would cause the eld to start getting so hot?

i dont know what caused the eld to get hot but i would definely say the fact that it was smoking you need to replace it/ alot of ---- could have gone wrong with the swap like the alternator wire being shorted. some eld problems i heard about is from swaped engines with wrong pin outs for the ecu. im warning you everything i have heard about from elds is people going over wires for hours upon hour upon hours

well if the eld is disabled your ecu cant controll the alternator or reset values for electrical load. it might not make a big difference with the whole ecu changing fuel and timing values im sure the adjustments will be slight but it will make a difference in the performance of your alternator it will be running at max capacity constantly causeing more load on the engine which increases fuel usage and more wear and tear on the alternator. alot of people report pre mature failure on alternators when disabling the eld. goto a sound system forum and find out i know people talk about the elds on there more than most other forums

true... thanks bro... i have been doing some reaserch and it seems like a circuit that didnt have a good ground used the ELD ground and overloaded the ELD causing it to overheat and burn up... so now im in the process of redoing my grounds to see what happens
