Know anyone who can re-program a stock '86 ECU?
« on: November 07, 2019, 09:02:24 PM »
I want to install a disable switch for the overdrive on the 4+3 Doug Nash in my '86.  Car is all factory stock and OD works as it was intended.

I would like to have a switch that disables all the silly factory functions and just be able to engage it when on the highway.

The guys on the US forum say that you can re-program the ECU to stop the factory silliness.

Does anyone know someone in Australia that could do this?

Unfortunately that part number is for 89-95 with 6 speed.  It has been badly labelled by Ecklers.

I couldn't find one for the 4+3

I have no idea what CAGS is?

Would be nice if someone did a ready made fix for this.

I guess that it the light on the dash that tells me when I need to change gear?

Does anyone use that?

when you find someone, I received a call from a vette owner in SA looking for some help with the ECM in a 2005 C6.

Give Steve Rosenfels a call. He does ECU reprogramming on a range of engines for tuning purposes and he may be able to assist with yours.
