Do the 300s have an ECU in any meaningful way?

only late autos, AIUI.

the older ones are all simple mechanical stuff. hence my questions in a
nother fred about disco II and what it's like for a traditional nut-and-bolt
mechanic like me to work on.

'course, the V8s have an engine ECU. But I doubt that's OBD either.

If it is an auto with EDC then yes it will be.

Re: 1995 Discovery 2.5TDi - ECU codes

Hi,

The Disco is a 1995 diesel manual and appears to have the OBD-type
interface plug by the driver side fuse box. I have plugged in a PC
serial to OBD converter hardware to my PC using VAG-COm software. It
seems to recognise the hardware interface OK and goes off searching but
then comes back with the message "not OBD compliant. The socket on the
disco seems to be wired for OBD.

Help!

Tim

a 95 diesel manual is the same as ours and the only thing that might have an
ECU is the alarm. The engine is controlled by a normal mechanical diesel
pump, and the body electrics are nice old fashioned ones with wires for each
job, AFAIK.

Later diesels with auto boxes got EDC - an electronically controlled pump,
and that might be what the OBD connector is for.

but seriously, you're wasting your time IMHO with the one you have.

What's the problem with the car?

You will (with the right hardware/software) be able to look at.

Alarm

ABS if fitted

EGR if fitted.

And that is it.

If the engine is playing around it is good old fashioned dirty hands
that will fix it.

Good luck.


PS: I would not expect my LR diagnostics to be able to look at VAG stuff
either.

Re: 1995 Discovery 2.5TDi - ECU codes

Austin,

Thank you for your help. I have a problem with the ABS system.
Sometimes the warning light goes off, other times it stays on
permanently. I have replaced or tightened up all four wheel bearings
as I understand that can upset the ABS sensors. The ABS system seems
to operate even though the wheels are no where near to a locked
condition when braking: the anti-lock chatter through the brake pedal
happens just as the car is coming to a standstill. It is a bit of a
worry because at the last minute braking efficiency drops. The only
other thing I can add is that the SRS (air bag) light is also on with
right half slightly flashing but I presume that is yet another issue?

Any further help would be much appreciated.

Tim

Marc,

Thanks for help. I have a problem with the ABS system. Do you know of
any downloadable software I can use with my PC which will read the ABS
LR codes?

Any help much appreciated.

Tim
