    I have done a search with no much success.
    I have a driving force GT wheel and pedal set, where I need to re-wire the pedals.
    Does anyone know of a wiring diagram?
    Cheers, David.

    Inside the pedals will be two POTs, one for accelerate and one for brake.

    The center wiper pin of each pot will be connected to the accelerate and brake DB9 pins above and the other two outside pot pins will be connected to +5V and GND (just like wiring the feedback pots on the sim). If you get the +5V and GND backwards it will make the pedals work in reverse.

    Nope, dammit @RufusDufus that didnt work, the wiring from the circuit board inside is different. Thanks for the help anyway. I will buy a new set and put the others aside till a later date.

    Bummer... I didn't think the pedals had a PCB in them or are you trying to sort out the wiring at the wheel end?

    I gave up trying to rewire a plug and dug inside the wheel, to find 5 wires, dammit. 4 wires coming out of pedals.
    No problem, when I have time again I will have another go.
    Thanks again for the help.
    Dave.

    Next time you try this may help...

    It looks like the extra wire is to "sense" when the pedals are connected. When the pedals are plugged in the sense wire is connected to +5V.
