EEC-V Diagnostics for the Ford EL Falcon

  • This Document Describes information regarding obtaining ECC-V Diagnostic Information, as well as information on Placing the EEC-V Engine Management Module into diagnostic Mode.
    Finally, a List of EEC-V Catch Codes are listed here, for Reference and Replacement Information.
  • The EEC-V Engine Management Module is located underneath the Passenger Side Kick Panel, and can be accessed using the following Method.
  • 1. Remove the Door Scuff Moulding on the Passenger side door, by removing the 3 self taping screws.
  • 2. Remove the 2 Plastic plugs holding the Kick panel in place. Remove the kick Panel by pulling it away from the Foot well, at the firewall end.
  • 3. Remove the Self Tapping Screw holding the Retaining Bracket in place, and swing the retaining bracket outwards.
  • 4. The EEC-V Module should now be free to manipulate. To Remove the Wiring Connector, simply use a 10mm Socket, and remove the Retaining Bolt. (REMEMBER TO DICONNECT THE GROUND LEAD FROM THE BATTERY FIRST !)

    Outputs
  • Self Test Output
  • Data Output Link (DOL)
  • Fuel Injectors
  • Idle Speed Control - Bypass Air (ISC-BPA)
  • Canister Purge (CANP)
  • Power train Control Module (PCM) (V8)
  • Exhaust Gas Recirculation Vacuum Regulator (EGR) (V8)
  • Thick Film Ignition Module (TFI) (V8)
  • The EEC-V Operation can be described as having 2 distinct operating Modes. These are best described as,
  • Normal Operation
  • Limited Operation Strategy (LOS) or Limp Home Mode.

    Normal Operation
    Normal EEC-V Operation can be further sub-divided in to the following modes.
  • Crank Mode - The crank mode is entered after the initial engine power up, or after engine stall when the key is in the Run/Start Position.
    The Ignition is set at 10* BTDC
    The Idle Speed Controller Valve is opened Completely
    Canister Purge is Off
    Fuel flow is dependant on engine coolant temperature except for WOT (Wide Open Throttle)
    When the Throttle is Held Wide Open (Wide Open Throttle - WOT), the EEC-V prevents the injectors from switching on (I.E. No Fuel Injected).
    This feature enables the engine to be purged of fuel if it has been flooded.
    After the engine starts, RPM will increase causing it to leave the Crank Mode, and enter the Under speed Mode.

  • under speed Mode - under speed mode assists the Engine to obtain Run Mode From Crank Mode.
    The Ignition Remains at 10* BTDC
    The Canister Purge is off
    The Idle Speed Controller reverts to normal operation and airflow is calculated from the input of various sensors.

  • Run Mode - When the engine speed enters the normal idle range, the EEC-V Switches to Run Mode.
    The Throttle position determines the sub mode or mode of operation.
  • Run Mode - Closed Throttle Mode (Idle) - This mode is entered typically when the vehicle is idling, or decelerating.
    By monitoring the Throttle Position Sensor, the PCM is able to select closed throttle mode.
    The Idle Speed Controller position is determined by the EEC-V Module, as a function of RPM, ECT, A/C Load, Neutral/Drive, and Power steering Load.
    The Carbon Canister will be purged if there is sufficient air flow, and correct coolant temperature.
    Fuel Flow is calculated from the airflow, and then made richer or leaner to suit the coolant temperature.
    Ignition Timing is calculated as a function of RPM, Engine Load, coolant temperature and intake air temperature.
  • Run Mode - Part Throttle Mode (Cruise) - Part throttle mode is selected by the EEC-V when the throttle position sensor value is within a certain range.
    The Fuel Flow and ignition timing are calculated in the same manner as described for the closed throttle mode.
    Canister purge can occur in Part Throttle mode if certain auxiliary conditions are met such as correct coolant temperature, and sufficient airflow.
  • Run Mode - Wide Open Throttle Mode (Flat Out) - The EEC-V selects this mode when the TPS signal exceeds a certain value.
    To obtain maximum performance in WOT, the canister purge is switched off, and the engine is made to run richer.

  • Limited Operation Strategy - Limp Home Mode (LOS) - In this mode of operation, the EEC-V provides the necessary outputs to allow the vehicle to Limp home, should an electronic malfunction occur in the PCM.
    The Ignition Timing is fixed at 0* BTDC
    The canister Purge is locked out
    The Injector pulse width is fixed (Fuel flow constant)
    For 6 cylinders, the Idle speed controller duty cycle is set to 75%
    For V8s, there is no ISC duty cycle.
    This gives a very rich engine characterised by black smoke from the exhaust.
    Vehicle performance in this mode is substantially degraded although it may be driven up to 100Km/Hr

  • The Diagnostic Connector for obtaining Self Test Codes
    The Self Test Codes can be read using either a Multimeter, or an LED, and consists of a number of Pulses outputted on the Engine STO Pin, and the Vehicle Diagnostic connector (The STO Out Pin is the 5th Pin from the left, on the upper row).
    These codes can be deciphered by using the format,
  • 1/2 Second On Time for Each Digit,
  • 2 Seconds Off Time Between Digits,
  • 4 Seconds Off Time Between Codes,
  • 6 Seconds Off Time Before and After the 1/2 Second separator pulse.

    To Perform a Key On/Engine Off (KOEO) Self Test,
  • 1. With the Ignition Switch Off, Connect the Engine STI Input to ground, (The STI Input is the First pin from the left, upper row, connect this to the Pin directly below it)
  • 2. Connect a LED, Multimeter, Lamp, or Buzzer to the STO Pin, and ground. (The STO Pin is the 5th Pin from the Left, on the upper Row.)
  • 3. Turn the Ignition Switch to On, But DO NOT START the Engine
  • 4. Observe the Codes.
    These codes will be displayed in the following sequence,
    1. On Demand Codes - Hard Faults
    2. Separator Code - Numeral 10
    3. Memory Codes - Intermittent Faults.

    To Perform a Key On/Engine Running Self Test,
  • 1. With the Ignition Switch Off, Connect the Engine STI Input to ground,
  • 2. Turn the Ignition Switch to start, and start the Engine
  • 3. Observe the Codes.
    These codes will be displayed in the following sequence,
    1. On Demand Codes - Hard Running Faults
    2. Separator Code - Numeral 10
    During a Separator Code, the Throttle should be goosed (Pressed and released) if performing a Cylinder Balance Test (V8).
    This will cause the Engine to hold the selected RPM, and Test.

    Cylinder Balance Test - V8
    When this test the EEC-V Module selectively shuts off fuel to each of the cylinders, one at a time, and measures the drop in RPM.
    If this Drop is outside the normal limits, it will at the completion of the test, output a fault code for that cylinder.
    This code will be in the format "10" for Cylinder 1, "20 for Cylinder 2, etc.
    If all cylinders are OK, the EEC-V Will give a code "90"
    See the Key On, Engine Running Self test for more information.

    Electric Thermo Cooling Fan Test
    This test will switch on the Thermo Fans when the Key On, Engine Off (KOEO) Self Test is performed.
    To activate, carry out a KOEO Self test, and when the codes are being displayed, place the Transmission in to gear to turn the Thermo Fans On, and Place the Transmission into neutral to stop Fan operation.
    If both fans do not operate, then there is a problem with their operation.

    Erasing Memory Codes
    Turn the ignition key OFF for a period of 10 seconds, then On.
    Activate the (KOEO) Self Test,
    As soon as the Diagnostic codes are being displayed, simply remove the Ground to the Self Test Input.
