EF-EL Dash Diagnostics Mode

after reading the following article on Matti's Falcon site about using the Dash Diagnostics mode on an EF or EL (http://www4.tpgi.com.au/users/mij/Au.../DashHack.html) I went in search on the net to find out what the unknown modes not covered by Matti's site. Searching on Google I could only find was Matti's site, hey, watch that pride, it'll be the end of ya :s4

Has anyone else figured out these codes?

Does anyone know of any other websites with interesting info on EF's and EL's?

We had a discussion about them after we first found they existed. From memory the values on the unknown modes varied from model to model... Here's the thread --> http://discussions.fordforums.com/sh...ight=dash+mode

Thanks for that AusXH, I've read through the whole thread now but it still leaves some questions unanswered. Is anyone still willing to flog this horse again?

I've just completed a few circuits of my area trying to get these values to change by turning on and off certain systems and changing settings. One thing I was certain would be covered in the modes was my cruise control but sadly I couldn't find anything

Has anyone thought much about this since that last thread was active?


I get the following on my Dec 97 build EL GLi as compared to Xypoids example on his website

Mode 9: Bottom value changes almost randomly between 00, 01, 02 and 11

Mode 10: Bottom value changed between 01 and 03

Mode 11: Bottom value is 1000 as opposed to Xypoids 1100

Mode 12: Bottom value is 1111 as opposed to Xypoids 0000

Mode 16: -d--

This last one is strange as you would assume it has something to do with the gears (as per mode 8) but it doesn't change as I drive, change the gear shifter to reverse (etc) or fiddle with cruise control, a/c or headlights

By the time I pay off my car loan I should be able to afford a BA

Yeah, I am still interested in working out the final bits, to see what they are for.

I think one of them has something to do with the EEC Catch Code.

I also changed my cluster from the Fairmont to the Fairlane, and one of the values is completely different.

Anyway, I had a list somewhere of the different Values, from Different Models, which I will try and find, and post up here.

Cheers
Matti

Okay, I have 6 combinations so far.
(I just added both your results - AusXH, and Wazza80-99 )
Thanks guys

Also thanks to QuarterPounder and Jase_ELXR8
for the XR6 and XR8 models

I am not sure if I should copy the results here in this thread (would be a very big post, but if the mods will allow it, I will place the info up here).

But in the meantime, here are the results
http://users.tpg.com.au/users/mij/Au...k/Project.html

If ANYONE else has any other figures, then post em up here, and Ill add em to the list.

Also I think that Mode 9 Bottom is the Fuel Level Dampening Value, as it seems to be around the same value, and I can get it to change whenever I jiggle the car a little.
(Very hard to explain)

Cheers
Matti
