hey guys, if Jaysen's guide didn't work for you, give this one a shot. It worked for my EBII 6cyl so i'd say it will work with EA-ED falcons although EAs shouldn't need it anyway.

Feedback would be greatly appreciated so feel free to give it a read anyway.

Good guide, with nice pictures Slabz..

Just so you know, you don't have to run that wire.. Where the transmission plugs in with a square plug, you can connect the (from memory) the orange/black wire to the ground wire on the bottom (black), and it will achieve the same thing..

I had it done the first time like you described, but I thought it wasn't great, and I was cleaning up my wiring, so I found it easier to just bypass it at the plug.

But your method still works, and it worked for me for a long time.

Cheers

thanks guys, i came up with this after i'd done the conversion and my car wouldn't start :P and because it worked fine and looked ok (IMO) i didn't need to refine it.

That's what the nuetral switch is for on the manual gearbox. Earths that relay (if you run the loom to it).

If you earth that relay permanantly like you have it just allows you start it in gear and stuff.

yeah i know. my gregories manual also speaks of a clutch switch (which i dont have) so you can start the car when you have the clutch pressed in. That switch is also used to turning off cruise control i think (which i also dont have)

I like starting in gear :-D.. saves me pushing my car manually when the engine is manifold less, and so forth...
