EEC Wiring guidelines and Calibration Development Support System Pocket Ref

Want to give a heads-up that I just obtained these and will be scanning and making available when I am able. The wiring wiring guidelines are not that interesting but give guidance about how to build a wiring harness for the EEC. Since it's a binder it will be very easy to scan. The pocket ref is mo...

Re: CMPB question.

You're missing the bit where register rf6 (rf6:rf7) is loaded with 0x93A8. Your addresses are then relative to that base.
[Rf6+74] = 941C
[Rf6+75] = 941D
[Rf6+76] = 941E
[Rf6+77] = 941F
[Rf6+78] = 9420

Re: Historic EEC-V info request

Disappointing. Your schematic will never work in implementation. I'm pretty sure J3 Port Pin 22 is cycled to dump the contents of the ROM. Your schematic doesn't have that connected. That seems unnecessarily rude :( I have to disagree with you. I think it's fairly obvious that the design has actual...

Re: newby here cant find strategies on BE should I swap EEC?

Don't confuse the catch code with the strategy. 8LD is a calibration catch code for the GUFA strategy. It's pointless to guess, though -- get the catch code off your EEC and post it back here if you need help finding the right strategy for it.

Is the VILE EEC using the same 81C65-D / how do its part numbers compare to the P3M?

Where in NorCal are you stuck? I'm in Santa Rosa if it's anywhere near where you are. I had one of the very early ELM chips with a UART interface and never got very far with it. The HF scantools, on the other hand, are fairly cheap and I haven't had any complaints with them over the years.

Re: Execute Enable Register?

So is it accessed via the DAR like other RAM contents?

It sounds like you're saying that normally if you use the RAM's SPC to read, it probably just floats the bus and you get 0xFF's unless the EER was written 0xAA.

Please confirm my ignorance or deny my understanding :lol:
