Re: help with trip computer

Not so simple....
The EA-ED Trip comp has discrete inputs with speed sender, fuel sender and fuel rate signal (fuel rate signal is the green/yellow wire from the EECIV to the EA-ED tripcomp).

The EF/EL has one data wire from the EECV which codes all of that info.

The two systems are totally incompatible and you will not get the EA-ED tripcomp working with the EECV directly.

If you hear of someone who has worked out how to do it let me know.

Re: help with trip computer

Yeah what he said. Best bet is to either ignore fuel usage function, or somehow fit an EL one in, which will probably involve a lot of fibreglass
