Hi,

I've got new (CF4) injectors. I'm trying to code them using FES in my (CF3) ECU.

I get message "FAILED TO EXECUTE". If I use one of the 4 codes stored in the ECU in any of the 4 cylinders it works fine, descarding software/cable problems.

Not knowing a thing about IMA coding, my guess is there is at least one check digit in the 9-digit injector code. A CF4 injector probably uses a newer version of coding my ECU does not recognize.

Does anyone have a solution/workaround for this?

Thanks,

Luis

How about swapping the nozzle with needle only?

How about swapping the nozzle with needle only?
It would do pretty much the same. Most of the coding I assume is to correct nozzle differences from one injector to the other. I guess there is some calibration for the electrical part of the injector as well..

Anyway, swapping the nozzle would only take calibration to a 2nd level.

My ECU accepts any of the 4 "old" codes into any of the cylinders, so I'm playing with them trying to make correction on all 4 cylinders as low as possible, for now ...

Thanks,

Luis
