ECU Connector Identification
When purchasing a Unichip kit for your vehicle, it is of utmost importance to check the connector for your vehicle’s ECU (Engine Control Unit).
This is important because vehicles with the same engine may have different ECUs depending on the year they were manufactured. Generally, older vehicles have fewer wires connecting to the ECU compared to newer vehicles which have more.
Understanding the connector format is also crucial. For example, the notation “3×4” refers to a connector with three separate slots, each containing four rows of pins. In scenarios where connectors have varying numbers of rows, the connector with the most rows is used as a reference. Moreover, if the ECU has an unoccupied slot meant for a connector, that empty position is still counted as a connector.
By properly identifying your vehicle’s ECU, you can ensure that you receive the correct Unichip kit compatible with your vehicle.
