    EAS problem

    Gents,

    Driving on the highway this morning, once of a sudden 2 beeps and the display says max 55kph.

    When I connect the Nanocom the only message I get is can't communicate with ECU, the EAS does nothing, no pump running, when I open the doors she doesn't level herself, the ride height can't be changed, EAS is completely dead..

    Fuses and relays are good.

    Does this mean the ECU is stuffed? Where is it located?

    Thanks for any advice

    Problem solved...

    Turns out it is the timer relay, I don't have a timer relay, but I found something via the net here on the forum, 2 birds with one stone, because what's in this post was annoying me too.

    With a 4 pin relay instead of the timer, you can't connect to the ECU. One of the downsides of that mod, sooner or later the timer relay gets lost, a fault appears and you can't do anything about it.

    I know, but for now it's going again

    The best mod of all time - and all for $5.95. GOLD.

    https://www.techbrands.com/store/product/sy4070.aspx is the part Australian users need but that relay appears to be available widely.

    Perhaps a new sticky thread on the top of the page with tried and tested modifications; I would definitely put this and the four Schrader valve EAS manual pump up modification in there.

    But that relay is a simple 5 pin changeover relay (the same as the green ones in the fusebox), you only need a 4 pin but with either you still can't connect diagnostics without the timer relay. Rather than fitting 4 Schrader valves on Tees, it's better to just keep them in the glovebox to be fitted if needed rather than add 16 further potential leak points.

    I agree Richard, I keep schradervalves in the cubby and not connected with T's. Doesn't take long to use in an emergency, and a lot less fittings that can leak.
    As for the timer relay, I keep that with my Rovacom, so I'm never caught without, eiter for my own cars or for a customer. And if need be, you can still use diagnostics with a standard relay, by cycling the ignition to mimic the on/off effect.
