EF-EL Secret Odometer Modes

Ok Guys, since i'll be posting stuff related to this, i'd thought i would start a thread direct to this as opposed to the AU computer one.

Goes to show Ford's are not old technology as people make it EECV rocks.

So far i mainly used mode 3 digital rpm and speedo.

Just a thought, if manifold pressure or air flow meter is measured in one of the modes, i could theoretically measure how good an after market filter is, and ultimately compare a K&N with my O2 Rush filter.

Me too. I turned mine on before leaving work today. I know this has already ben asked, but does anyone know what all the screens/modes show? Jase_ELXR8, you mentioned "water temp, fuel indicated, fuel from sensor, RPM & speed, inst fuel per 100kms, fuel cons right now, what gear you're in" but which display shows what?

Just asking cos I reckon changing the displays while driving is baaad, mmm'kay...

Thanks dude. You da man!

3Toed,

What is the built month and year of your car? Is yours an EL1? Cause it doesn't seem to work on EL2's.

Ditto. My car (GLi Sapphire) was built in Feb 1998, has EEC-V and it works. Can't recall but I can scroll through around 13 screens of info. Buggered if I know what they all mean though!

Sorry dude, didn't see your post till now. I just had a look and the plate says "EL FORD FALCON SEDAN" and the build date is 02/98.

I can't tell if it's EL1 or EL2 but when I bought it the sales guy said the 98 build would cost more than a 97 build. I'm presuming it's an EL2. Can someone else confirm?

BTW, my digital display was still on Mode 3 this morning and hasn't changed back yet. Here's hoping it won't.

El2

My bros Fairmont Ghia was purchased in may 98, build is may as well, because it came out of the factory as he ordered it, and it's an El2. the Ford thing flashes up and we can get probably 13 modes. who knows what they do? I had noticed that the mode changed back to normal after driving for 5 minutes, but ever since someone said to wait until the Ford flashes up, it remains on constantly now.

It would be cool to understand what everything does. I'm sure someone will have the time to work them out.
