Torque Converter Explaination - Part5
|How to determine what you need|
The purpose of the TCC control (torque converter clutch) wiring is to disable the torque converter clutch whenever you apply your brakes.
We offer two different types of torque converter control wiring systems. The first one uses a GM Cruise Control Switch for use in General Motors vehicle that uses the plunger style brake light switch common to all cars and many pick ups manufactured from 1955 until the early eighties. By clicking on the above link you will see a picture of the Cruise control switch we supply in our kit. Under your dash, your switch may look like this but only have the two terminals for your brakes light circuit. Our new four terminal switch will replace your present two terminal switch and will simply mount right into your stock brake switch holder. If you are certain you have this type brake light switch, it is a very quick easy way to do the converter control system. After mounting the new four terminal brake light switch, and finding a keyed on hot power source, the rest of the system just plugs in.
If you don't
have the General Motors plunger type brake light switch described
above, you will need to use our Bosch
Relay style torque converter system. Other types of brake light
switches can be in line pressure activated switches or any of many
other types of mechanically activated switches that are activated
by your vehicles brake pedal linkage. If in doubt, purchase the
system because it will work for all vehicles regardless of brake
light switch type.
