I've been going through a lot with my car, but i''l try to keep my story short.
I have an Accord 1999 VTEC 4cyl 4drs, and i concluded out of some tests that i have a bad ECU (after replacing a lot of sensors, fuel-pump, and finally replacing the whole f23a engine
. The thing which was making the situation annoying is, my car has no OBD2 nor OBD1 connector. it has a 3pin connector (see illustration below)
, which here in my island i get limited/no support at the Honda Dealer.)
I forgot to tell you my PROBLEM; I actually have an intermittent stalling issue, and this problem remained after the engine swap.
But to keep things really short, i'm now completely sure that it was the ECU bothering me all the time, since;
I swapped the whole engine with all sensors and fuel-pump and the problem remained
and lately i finally received the 1st check-engine light (CYP), and after troubleshooting with another distributor and measuring the resistance it comes out on a bad ECU.
So i went my way on buying an ECU on the internet.
But my part-code 37820-PAA-A50
was no were to be found. After some research i bought another ECU which should do the same 37820-PAA-L61
. I bought the complete unit with its ignition-switch and (programmed)key, since my car has no immobilizer.
The parts arrived, my surprise now; since my car has no immobilizer it misses the jack for the immobo. (see illustration below)
In another forum i found the wiring diagram for this unit, and i made it. (see illustration below)
BUT after doing it all, it still wont start. I'm not able to hear the Fuel-pump when the key is turned ON. So the engine is getting no fuel and only cranks, and cranks, no go!! Further on i get a code 22 (VTEC-issues) from the new ECU, which should not be a real problem now.
My question now;
1. Anybody knows if there is something else i should consider when scratch installing an OEM immobilizer? is this even possible?
2. Is there another ECU i can buy with no immobilizer and still can do the work for my 1999 Accord? if yes, please provide me the Part-code...
3. Or anyone knows where i can get the 37820-PAA-A50
