Due to occasional questions arising lately on the subject, I'd thought I'd put this together to help answer them. It's pretty much the finished item(minus the Fordmods format), but before I put it to the Mods for possible addition to the doco section, I'd like comments on any improvements or additions that could be made. If there are any inaccuracies, please point them out also. The wiring diagrams are very basic, but hopefully they are easy to follow.

Doco can be found here

Again thanks guys - it's been pointed out to me that EA - ED have some installation differences to EF/EL, so the doco has been updated to suit.

Unfortunately I don't know much about the EA-ED central controllers, only that they live in the dash near the handbrake, and in case of smartlock EBII-ED, the smartlock module is a separate unit, and sits next to the central controller. These two were combined in the EF/EL into what's known as a BEM.

Just checked. The ED sprint has a Blue central controller and the smart lock (directly above the hand brake) is Yellow.

It was playing up earlier when I tried to view it - couldn't even logon to my personal webspace with my FTP client.
Disabled the webspace and reenabled it, seems to work okay now.

Dodo's reliability of late seems to be dropping off.
Try again viewing it from your work - you should be able to view it.
