E8 Compatible with Elite 1500 universal Loom?

Postby dk5293 » Fri Sep 16, 2016 4:43 pm

Hi guys, just want to know whether an E8 will work with a universal elite 1500 loom (with fuse box). Going by the wiring diagrams of both, it looks like they share pretty much the same pinout and wire colours (aside from serial port connection which is expected). And a quick search of the forums brings up a post which confirms an elite 1500 will work with an E8 loom with only minor mods but just want to check that there isnt anything ive missed going vice versa. Thanks 8)

Most pins are the same, but you should double check all pins from both systems to look for difference. Some AVIs, the trigger, and the grounding are different.

Hi Matthew thanks for the response, ive finally gotten round to tackling this. I think ive managed to figure out all the changes i specifically need to make to the loom, the one last part that has me a bit unsure about is pin 25 on the 34 pin connector (labelled ECR OUT on the elite's wiring diagram). I notice its used as something else irrelevant on the e8's diagram but after tracing the wire back through to inside the relay box it looks like it may be a low side trigger for the ECU relay, injector and ignition relays, driven off the ecu itself (?). How should i go about adapting this for the e8, should i just connect it to ground and switch those relays from the high side, or connect it to a switch that pulls it to ground when I power the ECU, or have I got it all completely wrong?
Thanks in advance,
Andrew

Always low side driven. All of our ECUs since day 1.
