I installed an EBPV delete pedestal and was wondering if it is necessary to terminate the EBPV electrical connector?

Thanks,

Nope. There is no need to get rid of the connector. Just leave it down in the valley unplugged. It will throw a soft code by not being plugged in, but you won't get a SES light.

Works for me...Thanks for the info.

Mine has been unplugged for several years with no problems at all.

Hi all. I'm considering installing the EBPV delete pedestal. Every year the regulation crazy state of CA requires an engine inspection of diesels. Are they likely to see the delete pedestal? They don't plug into my computer so far but will a signal indicate the delete? I need the 3 gauges-exhaust, trans temp, boost. Who has the best gauges for the money, and are some easier to install? Is 3 on the post the best way? Thanks

I don't think emissions would care if you had the EBPV delete pedestal or not. It doesn't have anything to do with emissions. But if you are worried about them plugging in and finding a soft code...you can buy an adapter that plugs into the EBPV connector that prevents the soft code. As far as gauges goes you might want to consider Edge Touch Color Screen readout. That is what I put in my truck instead of the gauges and I have the option of monitoring five things at once and much easier to install...just a thought.

Justin...just for the heck of it I decided to make a termination and to elimate the soft code. I bought a 470 ohm 1/2 watt resistor at Radio Shack. Then took a paper clip and cut out two straight pieces for the legs and spliced it to the resistor. I wanted something about the same size as the connector pins and stiffer than the leads on the resistor to plug into the EBPV connector. When I was satisfied with the fit of my 'termination plug' I put shrink sleeve over it and pushed it into the EBPV connector. Works like a champ.

Yep. A lot of people do this to prevent the soft code. Some even buy a new pigtail that will plug into the original wiring harness and put the resistor on that. It does not look bad at all.
