Limp mode EEC4 and EEC5

This may sound a a little insane but here goes.

Can anyone suggest easiest way (electrically) to force ECU into Limp Mode.

I am looking at this as a second tier option for vehicle imobilisation.

Re: Limp mode EEC4 and EEC5

If the power supply to the trans is cut, it adopts 3rd gear, high line pressure.

When power is restored, it adopts 4th gear, then works itself out from there.

I'm curious, why do this?

Limp Mode

I have a GPS/GSM AVL tracking system developed and am looking to apply it to upmarket Fords, Holdens (yuck) etc.

Why I am ideally trying to achieve is limit the output and performance of the vehicle, sort of a VALET MODE, for hotel car parks, letting junior drive the car etc.

What I want to do is send a command a so a GT or XR drops to the performance levels of a say a base Focus. Send another command and the car is back to what it should be.
