The proposed scheme off the speedometerand standard for several models of vehicles, including for cars of the brand Ford. So, in order to turn off the speedo and stop counting mileage mileage Ford e, regardless of its model, you will need to perform several simple steps.
Prepare the machine for shutdown process – put it in the garage and set the Parking (hand) brake. Then lift the hood and remove the cable from the negative battery terminal, due to the reckless actions not to cause a short circuit in the onboard power supply and not burn expensive electronic innards of your car.
Decide on the installation location of the speed sensors in your Ford, or rather, system antilock car wheels (ABS). It consists of an electronic control unit, which via the direct drive is connected to the speedometer and the ABS sensors in the wheel hubs.
Since the ABS sensors give information about the speed and mileage of the car, unplug them, or rather remove the fuse F6 in the connector 10A. To do this, disconnect the 2 clips and the air duct cover plastic containers. Under the hood, locate the small fuse on the corresponding connector.
Once on your dashboard in the speedometer lights up the indication "ABS Fault", and instead of numeric values you will see on the screen a number of "dash", the speedometer will be disabled.
Since antilock ABS affects the braking function of the car, be prepared to create some problems. Because the braking system of Ford depends on full operation of the ABS, and disabling it increases the probability of skidding during heavy braking. In addition, the disconnection of the speedometer through the fuses speed sensor that will not allow you to develop the speed of the car at full capacity.
Advice 2 : How to disable the odometer
Using the odometer registers the number of wheel revolutions to measure the distance traveled by the car. These devices are mechanical and electronic. Correction of their testimony – a legal procedure, provided, however, that you do not hide.
Disabling the mechanical odometer. As an example, let it be VAZ 2101. The shutdown process is very simple. From the dashboard, Unscrew the speedometer cable. Can also be done with many other models of cars, such as VAZ (2102-2115); Audi 80, 90, 100, 200; BMW 3-series (E-21); BMW 5-series (E-12), etc.
Can be a side effect of the noise of the speedometer cable under the dashboard. To avoid this, it is necessary to completely remove the speedometer cable. Second option: remove the carton from the other end of the rope and tie it to the body.
Disabling the odometer is electric. For example, the BMW 3-series (E-30). To disable it, the easiest way is to pull the plug of the instrument panel on the left side. Also will cease to seem fuel level, speedometer and odometer daily.
The second method to disable on this model machine. Pull the fuse out of the fuse block is located under the hood on the left side (driver side) near the windshield. Similarly disconnects the odometer on these cars like the BMW 5-series (E-28, E-34), BMW 6-series (E-24) BMW 7 series (E-23, E-32), Audi (100 body 44, 45), Volkswagen Passat, Jetta, the Volkswagen Caravelle.
On newer models is not so simple. If you take, for example, the Toyota Land Cruiser, if you turn off error may occur. When checking the car on the diagnostic computer the program will show that the odometer was turned off (will show what number was disconnected, what was the value, and hence, mileage will be considered invalid). To resolve this error, you will need the help of a very good specialist. Error when disconnecting the odometer appears on the Toyota Land Cruiser 80, 90, 100, 200; Toyota Avensis; Toyota Mark 2; Mitsubishi Lancer (VIII, IX, X); Mitsubishi Pajero (III, IV, V), etc.
