ECU question: Can anybody here help me to reset Proton ECU with this? I wanna reset my ECU on my Satria 1.3 efi. Can anybody tell me whats the benefits of it?rather then sending it to Proton Edar to be tuned (save money). I need detailed steps on what to do, and the pros and cons. Do help aite?Much appreciated. Its a Siemens ECU btw.
Answer: You can reset it by removing the 20AMP fuse (can't remember the rating) near the air filter. Usually 1-2 minutes is suffice,or a cup of coffee while it's been erased, will do. This will erase any error codes (which Proton guys always do) but does nothing to improve your engine performance.Siemens-PROTON ECU ain't that complex compared to Merc ECUs that I've ever worked on.
If u left the fuse unplug, u can't even "fire up" your engine. That simple. unplug ur negative battery for about 10 minutes minimum. or better yet,leave it overnight. downside is, u have to reset ur sound system again. else, find the fuse for your ECU and take it out for the same duration.
Drive the car as per normal after resetting. This will allow it to re-learn.
BTW, don't expect any decrease in FC, otherwise everyone wants to do it.
Even if you reset it, first it will run on the factory's default parameter and after like several days of driving, it will re-adjust to the current condition of the engine and other "modifications" you did. Back to square one after few days.Serious about tuning? Get a AFC controller rather than installing Brothers's Microcompressor.
It will be based on the recently announced new Indonesian-based MPV model that was announced in March this year and is currently still under development by Toyota and Daihatsu. Perodua will apply its own styling onto the model. The upcoming Perodua MPV is still pretty far off, set to roll off the production lines only in September 2009, but here is a rendered speculation by Theophilus Chin of how it will might look like. Based on an existing Toyota compact MPV, the styling for this three row MPV rendering is largely based off the Perodua Viva.The timing for Perodua could not be any worse. After the launch of Exora, the only marketing maneuver option for P2 is to lower (significantly) on the road price of their MPV.
