Re: Anybody have a spare 190 ECU?

Are you sure that you can’t do what you want with a K3? The K3 is >10 years old now, but if it’s a sensible price and it works…

Re: Intermittent Cooling Fans

Sounds similar to what I experienced; nothing wrong with the cooling system and instead just the blue sensor (Stack) reading rubbish. The dash actually has nothing to do with the cooling system, other than being a diverse source of instrumentation. The standard fan cut-in is 104C, or 92 C if the 190...

Re: Anybody have a spare 190 ECU?

For info, Lotus can’t supply them anymore, and the 3rd party they were using for repair have went into administration due to covid. However, Espirit Engineering can potentially check/fix them, and I believe they may have an Exige ecu in stock too. [email protected] if you’re interested.

Re: Intermittent Cooling Fans

Ah, intermittent problems are the worst to pinpoint! Next time you think that it doesn’t kick in, go straight to the brown sensor and unplug it. If it kicks in then you know it’s an instrumentation issue. Do you know what temperature you expect the fans to kick in at too? It depends on what ECU you ...

Re: Intermittent Cooling Fans

You should plug in an OBD reader and see what temperature the ECU is reading (brown sensor), and then compare it with the dash (blue sensor). It may be that one of the sensors isn’t reading properly - I had this with the stack sensor recently, which made it look like the fan wasn’t coming on, but it...

Re: Anybody have a spare 190 ECU?

Cheers Rich, I’ve actually bought a second hand 190 to test, so should be able to sort it somehow. Wonder if it will run ok with the advanced inlet timing? Probably! Yep, will be checking it’s a 190 with the OBD, luckily it looks like a kid has been let loose with a felt tip pen, so decent chance of...

Re: foam air cleaner element

Try ITG themselves or Merlin Motorsport? I think it’s called the JC74.

I don’t think they’re very popular as someone tested on the dyno, and they lost power compared to a filter in the intake trunking.

Re: Anybody have a spare 190 ECU?

Yeah I’ve measured the OBD port resistances, as well as cleaning them out with contact cleaner - everything seems good! I’ve now separated the ECU supply from the OBD supply, so that will confirm it. Yeah mine just has marker scribbled on it too, but I know it’s a 190 map as you can tell from the OB...
