AEB 299 stepper motor
Posted: Fri Nov 29, 2013 11:16 am
Hi I have a 2000 Nissan Patrol and it has a lambda deg 104 comp ,when I brought this 4x4 it had a manual power valve. I have now put a AEB 299 stepper motor on it as the wiring was already there ,my question is it doesn't seem to be working it does have a vibration to it when reved but no movement will the comp have to learn or should it work straight away.thanks Steve

As nobody else has replied, I'll give it a go. I have no idea what a deg 104 is but assume it is a lambda controller of some sort. LPG for the Australian market is often the same as we get over here but with a different name and firmware.
The easiest way to check if the stepper is working as it should, refit your manual valve and have the stepper connected to the wires but not in the pipe so you can watch it and see what it does. With the engine running and warmed up, screw the manual valve in to make the mixture lean and you should see the stepper open up to try to correct the lean mixture. Screw the manual valve out to make the mixture rich and the stepper should close up to try to correct. If it doesn't it may be that you have a faulty lambda sensor (O2 sensor), or damaged wiring to it, so it is not giving a signal to the controller. In this case no signal will be seen by the controller as a lean mixture so it is likely that the stepper will open up fully and stay there. This assumes that the stepper you have got is the correct one for your controller but I will admit that most of the systems you have down under do seem to be rebadged AEB units so I would have thought it would be correct.
