4DMC
94DA-12A650-MC

thats the thing...there is no mention of this code anywhere.
for my 4.0l 1994 falcon ef wagon it seems to either have the 4DBC or the 4DBF ecu unit as required, not the unit that it currently has...and has always had since i bought the car 6yrs ago


puzzled, but wondering perhaps if i should just put one of these correct units in and see how it goes??/

4DMC comes up as a Series 2 EF Fairmont wagon.

Realistically, slap any EF auto ecu in there and it'll work.

Optimally, you would find out what diff ratio you have and choose an ECU similar from a sedan.

Unsure of all the differences,

However:
Series 2 got:

XR6 engine in the Ghia
Slightly different grey interior
Low coolant sensor wiring in GLi
Passenger Airbag loom with blanking resistor.

Someone correct me if i am wrong.
