Help Needed

Some of you may remember a thread i started last year asking for advice on what options you would go with regarding an engine and g/box transplant in my AU auto series 1.

Well i decided to go with the VCT Engine, 5 speed box and LSD diff!
All went really well til it came time to start the car and it went into limp mode.

The guys doing the transplant contacted Ford and ford advised that they would need to change the wiring loom over to a VCT loom and ensure that the VCT ECU is out of a series 1 also, other wise they would have to change over the BCM and Instument cluster.
So they put in a new VCT loom and a series 1 VCT ECU but it still goes into limp mode.

If they put the standard ECU in it goes out of limp mode but the VCT does not work.

Does anyone have any ideas??

They are scratching their heads, Im becoming frustrated, Any help would be appreiciated.

cheers.

Re: Help Needed

Was it put in with an auto ECU? If so, thats your problem I'd say. You'll need an AU 5spd/XR6 5spd ECU.

Re: Help Needed

Thanks F0rdman, it has a Series 1 XR6 VCT 5 Speed ECU in it now but that has not helped.

Thanks anyway.
