PP wiring connector 06 197 MCX

Hey guys!
PP don t always engage or way higher then it supposed to.
I did the control test as suggest per Perfect Pass site.
The letter S will appear but at 2250 rpm in place of the 1700 rpm specified on there test.
I m looking to measure the voltage on the engine side harness connector.
Anyone know where it plug onto the engine
My guess is it plug into the boat computer but...
My ski buddy is coming over from the other side of the lake and i will take a look at his boat.
Anyone ever had the same problem with PP not engaging or over revving before engaging

Thanks!

I would look at the ground wire going from the 9 pin white mate and lock connector. I was told by PP that the ground up by the helm wasn't all that great and that I should run a dedicated ground wire to the engine block, which I did. I did this when I first installed the PP stargazer into my 06 and I've not had any issues with it.

I read that part about bad ground in the PP troobleshoothing guide.
Where is the 9 pin white connector
Thanks!

The connector looks like this:



On my X30 it was behind the helm.

Here is a discussion about an 08 214.

I would think yours is near the same area of the 214. Under the dash some where for sure.

Update.
After exchanging e mails with the excellent Perfect pass customer tech service (Aaron),I did the ground modification which consist of cutting a wire at the master module engine connector and running a dedicated ground wire to the engine ground.
Did the control test again and now the S appears at the normal 16-1700 rpm that it is suppose to.
We did a quick test on the lake with no skier everything was fine.
We ll test it more tomorrow morning in the course with skiers (Not me as i took a nasty one yesterday morning which turned into a little trip to the ER for a scan of the cervicals vertebras.Everything ckecked fine,just a little stiff today.)

Edit:...And the damn plug was behind the upper part of the foot rest.
