Sorry i missed your request of a ecu photo that i have.
Also i managed to get all the wires sorted and named on paper yesterday evening, the only thing im not 100% about is which wires i need to get this baby going.

I know the obvious ones, for instance the head lamps and A/C wires i dont need.
i also found out that the oil pressure sensor runs threw the ecu and not direct to the gauge on the dash,
so im thinking of just tapping into the yellow gray wire on the xj and connecting that to the yj wire light green feed, then also keep the wire running to the ecu.


also im not planning on pulling all the wires out of the xj harness as it looks clean as is.

For both the '94 and '00 XJ motors I have swapped, I used the sender out of the original CJ/YJ and didn't use the XJ one. I'm not sure about a '97, but I bet it is similar to the '00 in design and the XJ gauges are completely data driven from the computer so it isn't that the computer requires the oil pressure information, it just passes it to the XJ gauge cluster - which you don't have.

If you have two temperature sending units in the '97, the one at the thermostat housing is required by the computer and the one at the back of the head is for the gauge, put the YJ sensor in the back of the head and keep that wiring from the YJ. My '00 didn't have that back sensor so I had to drill and tap a new hole in the thermostat housing to run my CJ sensor into.

ok mine xj 97 motor dosent have the temp sense at the back, only on the front. so i will have to drill one like you said and use the yj temp sensor on the gauge.
thanks for that.

Be careful, it was very difficult to find a spot in that thermostat housing and drilling and tapping the aluminum was sketchy business. It would be safer to put something in-line with a radiator or heater hose or something as an alternative.

I'm also documenting an early OBDII swap into an '86 CJ over on the CJ forum. Maybe there's some info there that could help you out...

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/california-4-0-obdii-swap-1530716/


Also, here's where I downloaded the '99 XJ FSM.
http://colorado4wheel.com/manuals/Jeep/XJ/
That FSM applies to '97-99.

im in desprate state cant get the jeep to turn over
all my wiring is ready and labeled both xj and yj.
If it is all setup correctly and not turning over the first thing to try is to see if you can turn it over by jumpering the starter relay. Look in the PDC. On the starter relay jumper pins 30 to 87 with a short section of wire and the starter should turn over just like you are turning the key. Post back what happens. The AW4 is an automatic trans and has a nuetral saftey switch that must be wired in or bypassed for the ecu to allow it to start. The other issue could be the security disable.

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/p...rness-1502423/

because Varnish had the OBD2 set up in his cj and happened to have a thread on the obd2 system, well i should say questions about it.
anyway i started posting there with all my info on what i have done up to now.

so like you asked post op to my thread. sorry i didn't do that early-er


97 xj obd2 system





This is what all my wires are circuit first and then functions



.

This is what i have left over of what i think is needed to hook this baby up,
(note) V6 is a wire that is also connected to the engine bay wire harness




Then I've also got these 2 connectors that go to the junction box C1 & C2

Will i be needing any of these wires, they are attached to the engine pay wiring harness?




The junction box with the connectors in place. but junction box im dont want to use it.



The junction box circuit with function



C4 Connector from underdash harness to junction box




JEEP YJ 87 Bulkhead connector.



i just hope some one can help me uit here please
