How Return S200 Stock Cut J1- What Color?

Post by TurboTeg332 »

Trying to return S200 to stock to make sure its not damaged. I have read and heard cut J1, but what color is J1?

Keep everything else on this jumper hooked up normally just cut J1 only? So the jumper would stay hooked into the S200 blue box?

J1 is not connected to the blue box. It is on the ECU and is not a color, it is a location on the board. IF it is cut it is not using the external eeprom.

So are you saying I have to de-solder that location on the board in order to return ECU to stock?

Is J1 located where the 4 pin orange/black/brown/red jumper connect ?

No, it can just be cut and it is above the EEPROM. It is labeled J1 on the circuit board.

Ok I found it now thanks. Does the 4 pin jumper that goes to blue box need to be hooked up still once this J1 wire has been cut?

Cut J1 and the car ran. Is it relatively same to assume this ECU is not damaged and can be upgraded to S300 then?

THanks

In theory you should be able to upgrade it.

Is there a form that has details on what is needed for the upgrade?

I talked to Hondata last week they said it has to go through a dealer to upgrade S200 and the dealer says S200 needs to be sent to Hondata; so who does the ECU need to be sent to ?

You must purchase through the dealer and they will give you shipping instructions.
