there are loads of switches on my new car and nothing to point to what they are,i have two toggle switches by the gear stick ??????????? an on/off switch by the steering wheel,once again?????????i dont know what internals the turbo has but the car has a lot of goodies,stainless turbo elbow/downpipe etc.... and the boost controller setting are at 0.7 low boost and a bar high,have not run a bar as the a/f converter for fuelling is all at 0 so this needs setting up,have found this in the engine bay and dont quite know what it is,any ideas?

there are that many wires and cables and they go into conduit so it would be a pain to trace,i thought it was to do with the lights,wondering if they are HID

cyrstal oscillators,WTF are they?
I do have some solar pannels in the car,one big one in the rear window and a tiny one in the front(unplugged them now and removed),i assume these are to charge the batterybut the battery is in the boot so if this is to do with that then why is it under the bonnet?

RRRR Could be on to something there then, Crystal oscillators would smooth and controll the Frequency andf Current,

ECS I would guess stands for Electric Current Stabilser. Now that is a pure guess. But with that Info might be able to find out more now.

Would matter where the unit was as long as it was connected correctly.

EDIT :

Nikko Denshi Kogyo K K

SIC:power, Distribution, and Specialty Transformers

The info I found before was a company selling the Crystal oscillators to them.

Must be a transformer of some sort for your solar panels fella

Dont think its related to the lights,i will keep on trying to find what it is,i also have a switch in the cab that i cant trace either,when turned on it loads the engine (like the lights have been put on)but i cannot find what it does,nothing lights up,no fans start,no extra noises,just a switch that turns on/off

Ok,regarding the on/off switch that appears to do nothing,i think the swich is hicas related,with it off the car seems a bit all over the place at low speed,seems to stabalise when turned on,i think this may be how its delimited because i have read about wire 53 and how this takes the 112mph limit off but can upset the hicas,have not really had chance to see if the car is still limited with it on but does anyone know if i could be onto something

its one of those super funky fuel efficiency boosters... right up there with fuel tank pebbles and fuel ionisers. It reads ECS Super Gas Turbo 5C-K

One of these:

Its meant to boost your fuel efficiency and power. Its a bit of a placebo for cars, at best its a basic grounding kit.
