Hello,

Could someone let me know where the Smartshield and ECU is located on an AUII?

I've been searching for it in two Ford Workshop manuals and they show nothing about its location, just mostly talk about what it does.

Any info as to its location would be appreciated.

Thanks

ECU is located behind the front passenger side kick panel, same as the E series.

BEM is located under the lower instrument panel on the left side of the steering column, same location as the E series. Smartshield is part of the BEM.

SWC,

Thanks for that valuable information.

On the BEM, is there any way of determining whether it's a smartshield or smartlock?
