Help! What is it?

Recommended Posts

Hi All, finally got the right hand side cover off on my 2001 V8 having had to remove the strut and bracket first, to discover an additional electronic box stuck on top of the ECU, with a load a wires coming out of it!

Can anyone help me on what it is? Tracker? ECU override so "chipped"?

Appreciate anyone's help

Thanks Bob

Racelogic make GPS/g-meter trackers...

That however is more likely one of their traction control units. Nice bonus!

Search the forum for 'racelogic' and you'll find a few topics about it :)

looks like this, identyfied by the connector type -traction control box:

but I wounder, as the Lotus ECM does have *misfire detection*, and it is named as impossible with this arrangement

-so without the stock ECM program you would also risc to mis critical situations

There was a big group buy on here of these a few years back. Do that search and you'll find out all about it.

Sorry yes, had no time earlier- had chance to research it a bit better now.

Amazed- never thought that one could fit an after-market traction control system! Must be staggeringly complicated somehow connecting to the ABS system which was never designed for it.

Thanks

Bob
