Under the fuse panel there is a white connector with several pins in it, that is the diagnostics plug.

Here is a diagram of it with the pins labeled. http://www.users.on.net/jasiunas/DIAGCON1.GIF

Re: where is the self test thingy [yes im a noob]

thanks for that. i hate being a noob, but im learning.

ok thats whats in my car, but none of the diagrams i have look like that. the pages ive read say to hook the multimetre to the battery and STO. and then short the STI and signal return pin. which is the signal return pin? is it just the ground?

Re: where is the self test thingy [yes im a noob]

Re: where is the self test thingy [yes im a noob]

Ummm, sorry to drag this up again, but I'm pretty lost....

I've got an ED Falcon (Oct 93) and I'd been following the instructions at http://www.dalidesign.com/hbook/eectest.html , but I'm buggered if I can work out where the self test plugs are.

So, is it right from the above that the self test for the diag is not under the hood? It's the white thingy under the fuse box on the drivers side?

Can anyone help with the pin outs? The links above don't work anymore, and it looks nothing like the diagram at the link I've been trying to follow :-(

TIA

Re: where is the self test thingy [yes im a noob]

Yeah its a different plug to that in the link. To put it into test mode you need to short out the upper and lower far left pins, and if I can remember correctly you use the 3rd pin from the left to connect to the LED/Test lamp/Multimeter which then connects to an earth to read the codes. I will try and dig up the diagram again and post it back up on my website.

Re: where is the self test thingy [yes im a noob]

Thx - that'd be awesome.

It looks like this one from this page on the EF. They list the pin outs for the low/mid series connector, but they don't seem to match up with what I've seen around for the ED (or EBII for that matter).

TIA
