Adding CA Connector Infineon 18 FET Controller

I have made a thread here on how to wire it properly for you below so other members can benefit from it as well. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
So here we go:

1. Determine the pin number & colors to the connector:

2. Add a diode (1N4001) to pin number 6 (The negative of the diode goes towards the wire. Look at the picture carefully. Also, add a little PVC head shrink heat tube is ideal not not really needed):

3. Solder a diode to the wire (Confirm the polarity):

4. Add heat shrink tube:

5. Short a resistor on R36:

6. Solder in the blue wire with diode to the SLA pad:

To be continue...

8. Pin #2 to GND-8 (next to XC -)
9. Pin #3 to GND-8 (between pad P3 & XC)
10. Pin#5 to HE below:

Let me know if you have more questions. Thanks! :)

I believe you are correct as well Mike! I however do not see the differences in terms of accuracy. So this is just a personal preference for now until someone has hard evidence. Thanks! :)
