Testing the ECU to find out if its stuffed.

Hey all .. anyway opf testing an ECU to see if it is stuffed? (ED FALCON) i.e. testing pin-outs or anything ...

The only two other ECU's I have is an ED auto ECU with smartlock removed, and a EA2 MPI ECU ... What will happen if I plug one of those in? will smartlock crap its self? ...

Re: Testing the ECU to find out if its stuffed.

Have you performed a diagnostic test on the ECU? A workshop manual or someone here should be able to tell you where to connect LED and which pins to short (on diagnostic connector) to enable a self test. There is a code which indicates the ECU is stuffed, it may generate this code for you?

If you replace the ECU with a smartlock enabled ECU it should be OK.

Re: Testing the ECU to find out if its stuffed.

you can use a non smartlock ECU in a smartlock car, just not the other way arround

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............
