R33 automatic dropping resistor

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


just a a quick question whether anyone has a pic of the dropping resistor for an r33 Gtst automatic? 

I know location is left hand front headlight and have found a resistor there but not sure if it is it or not.. I am hoping it is as it’s the only thing there.. 


if someone can confirm that would be much appreciated

I believe it assists with line pressure for the automatic gearbox if anyone can correct me if I am wrong.. 

one of the wires was exposed to metal, and had been witnessing 3rd gear not engaging, or locking in 3rd..

So if anyone is to come across what is in the picture on my post.  That is the Dropping Resistor for the auto box.
