What's needed for a Smartlock conversion and who's done it?

Eh guys,

I am converting to a EF Dual Runner Manifold very soon, and was just wondering whether anyone here has done the Smartlock conversion on their EA to get the runners functioning properly through an EL ECU. I know a member has done it, Robertjp I think, if you're around let me know how you did it!

Just a run down on a)What parts and b)What wiring will need to be added and where. If anyone has any associated diagrams that would be great as well.

I know this is going to end up putting my car off the road for a while lol, I'll have to change all my gas stuff to EF/L factory gas now *yay*

why not run a smart lock bypass? SVO XR6 has done it. unless you want the cool remote pad to unlock the doors and boot...

i would think the easy way would be to use an EB2/ED dashloom from a similar spec modle.

Re: What's needed for a Smartlock conversion and who's done it?

if you want a eb/d smartlock wiring
jr's has got an eb fairmont -it's a wagon though but i guess wiring would be the same it's just that i'm unsure wether it was series 1/2
only thing i san say to help find out if it's series 1/2 is it's silver (fully colour coded) and i got a silver trip computer out of it

JRs have at least two EBII/EDs with smartlock. Poly green ED classic and blue EB II wagon.

Re: What's needed for a Smartlock conversion and who's done it?

My EA now has smart lock

We just stuffed a complete EB2 Fairmont wiring loom into it, along with EB2 ECU and there ya are.

If u have some basic knowledge about the looms and what the different bits look like then u should be right.

I have no idea, so I enlisted the help of mongrelEB (wont be round here again) and he got it working fine.

The only things that may be a problem is things such as instrumnet clucter plugs, and maybe if you have climte control...i actually have no idea, but u should know what plugs/sensors are different between the 2.

I cant really remember as i also put a EL dash and cluster in at the same time and we had to swap a heap of shit of that

But basically if u get a EB2 onward engine bay and dash wiring it should be a straight swap.
U may also want to get the body wiring so u have the complete conversion. It will save a little bit of stuffin around, and u get to pul the interior out n give it a clean .. or get it re apolstered

So have fun with the dash.

And also another tricky bit is behind the heater box. It is a bitch to get the wiring though the hole with the box stil there.
