Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Did you link the new ECU to the immobiliser?
If you can give me your VIN, I'll look it up for your immobiliser code if you need it.
Have you run a DTC check on the ECU?
Sounds like you have a bit of knowledge there.
The P1626 is certainly the issue.
The factory immobiliser is a better option, the key reader is mounted around the ignition barrel, and the immobiliser module is mounted behind the cluster above your left foot, about where the clutch pedal would be if it was a manual.
I'd keep an eye on that P0711 for your auto.
Hope the Dynamco guy can help you.
Ok, good luck and I'll await your reply.
The ECU doesn't need to erased, only unlinked from the immobiliser.
Then it can fitted to your vehicle and liked to your immobiliser.
I work for Holden, so it's easy for me with TECH2.
If the donor ECU comes from the same model/year etc then the program will be the same, if it's from a different m/y then an SPS program update will be needed.
You should be able to get a good second hand one.
Ok, the donor ECU needs to be reflashed with your VIN.
I'd say you need TIS2WEB access like a GM dealer would have.
Have you got a Holden dealer nearby, that may be willing to do the swap for you?
The ECU does not need to be erased.
It needs to be "reset" which unlinks it from the immobiliser from the original vehicle.
I always do this prior to removal regardless of warranty or retail repair.
Reason being that Holden cannot fit that ECU into another for testing purposes.
Buying one from a wrecker won't get you one that has been unlinked correctly.
Ah Yes, your engine is a 6VD1 not 6VE1, so single cam per bank not quad cam?
And being dual fuel, does it run on LPG?
Yes, you're probably right there.
Gets confusing with dual fuel cars.
It is a 6VD1 engine?
I'll see what else I can find out when I'm at work tomorrow.
