EB Smart lock

Hi everyone had trouble a while ago with smart lock not allowing engine to crank. did the usual bypass of start and has been good until now. During hot weather ( not hot engine) the smart lock is flashing and cutting spark,inj etc will crank because bypassed. I have dismantled module and cannot see any signs of poor solder joints etc.
Is there any other common causes for this?
Is the most common cause the barrel and key or smart lock module?
Can i replace ecu with EA series 2 multi point 4 speed auto unit without smart lock?

Thanks Dean

Re: EB Smart lock

Make sure your courtesy lamp fuse is not blown.
Often the barrel doesn't "see" the key and so will not comunicate with the module
You can leave the ignition in the "on" position for 30 minutes (on EB) and the smartlock module will be overridden.
If yo turn the engine off and can start again within 30 seconds the fault is most likely the ignition switch
If you are unable to start within the 30 seconds it is most likely the module
If you replace the ECM with a non smartlock type you loose central locking - I think

Re: EB Smart lock

Thanks will try leaving ign on see what happens ECM i was going to change would be main engine trans ECU to one which doesnt require signal from smart lock module ie EA series 2 might try one anyway will just need to check pin locations are the same as EB for engine and trans.

Re: EB Smart lock

Hi guys!
So that's that sound that avoids me cranking it every time I'm rushing to start.
Every now and then, I forget to turn it to on, give it a few seconds to think about it, then crank it.
Smart lock.
Can one lock all the doors as one is driving off? ( u know, to avoid them EB-loving females that may be lurking at traffic lights from just jumping in )
