Hi guys and gals,
Have put in the 4.0 and Tranny (and a hell of a lot more) out of an ED into my EA ghia (as some may remember from earlier posts). Before anyone asks - it is a series I EA - 3spd auto :). 99% done and running....
Question - it only starts when I have the old ECU in - because I haven't figured out how to get around giving the codes from the smartlock module to the ED ECU to enable it. Can't use this ECU though as it has no way of running the 4spd auto.
Here's the question - do any of you know the sequence/enable code that the smartlock module puts out to enable the ECU?? - or any websites etc that give the info?? Any help appreciated. No I am not about to start stealing ED's all over the place either!!!
It is either this - or install the smartlock system (have run out of patience for that big time) - or buy an ECU from an EB series II pre smartlock. Every wrecker is quoting $150 to $200 for that ECU.... ...needless to say that is a last resort just for now.
I have removed pin 4 from the ECU harness - hasn't helped. Want to know how to get around the smartlock requirements for the ED ECU as I already have a good alarm system in the EA and the smartlock is not something I wish to install.
Someone mentioned something a couple of months back on here about someone developing a simple device to send the enable codes to the ECU without smartlock - but can't find anything about this.
I have the smartlock module - but do not wish to enstall this as it will mean boot, doors, starter motor, and so on and so on. Is there an easy way to connect the smartlock module just so it spits out the enable code for the ECU?? Big ask that last one but I'd rather spend the $150 to $200 towards a mild cam to drop in later on instead of a non smartlock ECU that runs the 4 spd ayto if possible.
Hope it makes sense - any pointers to right direction would help lads!!!
