HI,

There is no way to bypass the ECU - absolutely every engine control system goes thru it and is controlled by it - from the fuel pump, fuel injectors, coils, crank and cam sensors, ect sensor, throttle body, etc.

No. There is a way for emergency bypass an 8 digit vode

Code

If you are a good mechanic for a given vin # you should be able to give that code.

I saw one in this forum that's why I use this, if not I'll go somewhere else to get it.

You asked how to bypass the ECU, not an emergency brake code. A good mechanic has nothing to do with having access to Honda's database to give out the brake code, which I dont do because I have no way of verifying your ownership of the vehicle. You need to call your local Honda dealer to get the code

OK. So you are not able to answer my question?

???
yes there is, but by the V.I.N., that would have the ECU that came with the vehicle
No one knows the Serial Number of your New One........
There is NO ByPass Code, by ECU, only by V.I.N. & that would have to have the original ECU or one that was Programmed to the V.I.N.
Tow to the Dealer & get it done right
