Transit MK8 Tipper 170ps 2019/2020 65mph Speed Limiter Removal

( Feb 2022 Update – it’s now cracked – the limit can be removed & all 2019+ models engine power can be uprated to 185ps as well if needed.)

170ps Euro6d (6d-TEMP) Tippers that use the SID212evo engine ECU have a factory limiter set about 65mph, it’s due to what Ford call “Whole Life Testing Protocol” Recent emissions scandals really focused regulators on emissions after delivery is made & it’s calculated that in a year or 3 once engine & tyres are worn etc the emissions on affected models may just go over the prescribed limit. Normally one would hack the engine ECU to kill the limit but because no remapping equipment can access the Continental SID212/212evo engine ECU file yet it’s not yet possible. ( October 2020) “Diagnostically” it’s a no go even for those with online dealer tool access. I’m not 100% if it’s only 170’s but have heard 105ps models are not affected – You can check your ECU type – there is a label on it & its behind the passenger headlamp. If you’ve a SID211 it’s easy to remove any limiter & anything else is not.

Iveco Daily China Fuel Regulator Valve any good ?

Bogdan ( I love that name ) had me remove the immobiliser from his 2005 Euro 3 Daily. It still wouldn’t start. Fuel was getting to the high pressure pump on the engine but no further. He sourced a Chinese 45 Ebay valve & van ran but cut out under 1000rpm. He then sourced a £68 quid genuine one from Coastal Motorhomes & it ran perfectly. So buy Bosch from a good source as the fakes continue to flood the part market.

Some handy Iveco Immobiliser & fuse info is held on this page:

Euro 5 MK7 Transit Overboost

Had a 2012 100ps FWD MK7 in, that would hit 2.6 Bar boost, then go into limp mode, then push the gas twice & its Ok again for a minute. No DTC’s were set. To cut a long & very boring story short, the new turbo was actually recon & the dowel that locates the VNT mechanism into the turbine body was missing & it was mis-aligned. a part of a broken 3.5mm drill bill stepped in a dowel & all was good. Actuator wise, the G number was G32 & this was for a front wheel drive, i’m told the rear wheel drive actuators differ in the arm cam position or sweep., so possibly, a rear wheel drive utilises a different G number.

2000 Iveco Daily Immobiliser Removal

Its a manual process on these, as the full ECU controlled immobilser system was fitted from about 2002.

Hi Martyn

Thanks for your time and help with my 2000 Iveco 2.8.

The issue was resolved by removing the immobiliser and rewiring the stop solenoid.

I will put together some info but in case you get any other enquiries, a couple of quick points.

Removing the immobiliser is really easy with a Dremel tool, cutting disks and grinding head. Took only a few minutes.

The original power to the immobiliser can be utilised to provide power for the stop solenoid without adding a new switch/wire, and continues to work from the ignition.

Again, thanks

Turbo , Ad-Blue, DPF & P0045 DTC Faults on Euro 6 RWD Transit.

Look on your turbo’s electrical wiring loom connector & you ‘ll see 1 or more broken wires, fix them & the turbo will start working again. The adblue also. You’ll need to do a manual ( static) regen on the DPF system if the system has been at fault for more than say 50 miles. Ford have identified an issue on this connector design & copper wire quality & have released an updated part #2205233 which has a more effective exit angle from the connector. The copper used is no longer from recycled washing machines either, its now the good stuff, hand mined by Namibian child slaves. This wiring issue alone will give rise to adblue faults as the DPF function is disabled once any turbo or DPF wire is broken, , with no corresponding DTC’s

1st pic show’s the area of interest.

Temporary fix on the white wire ( soldered & heat shrinked ) while i am awaiting the upgraded part & you can see the blue & also the slate coloured one starting to fail also. Final pic is the upgraded part , which has it’s wiring exiting the connector at a right angle via a plastic leg.

& finally a long video saying exactly what i have already said here.

Emails:

Hi, I’m trying to source a wire repair harness for the Adblue system. I followed the forum chat and found a part # quoted as 2205233. Have contacted Ford parts online and await a reply. Also contacted Tomo parts but they require a tag number from the wire loom. Can’t find a tag hanging on the existing loom. Would you have a tag number for this part please?

When starting vehicle an error message pops up advising no start in 130 miles and to add Adblue. This needs the repair to remove the message but it also comes up with ‘exhaust filter blocked, service required’. Do you know a fix for this without having the van offline for a service please?

Many thanks for your site and any assistance you can offer.

All the best,
Charlotte

Hi, that part number brings up hits on UK ebay. Once fitted ,  drive it &  you should get a message on the dash saying “drive to regen” or similar , if so drive on the motorway, 5th gear with RPM at anything  above 2500 until message clears . If you dont get a message, try deleting any fault codes, & re-try, failing that the DPF may need a static regeneration, depending on how long the turbo fault has been present , consequently how blocked the  DPF filter is.  The adblue fault should disappear automatically once DPF is happy.

Aftermarket Cruise Control Switches – Ford Transit MK7

I saw a van today for cruise activation that had the aftermarket switches fitted, which is possible by cutting out a section of the steering wheel rubberised lower section. The cruise didn’t work after activation. Customer said he had to cut away part of the plug & was then faced with 2 choices on how to plug in the connector. Had no time to check the work beyond measuring the resistance of the switch circuit. It measured 2.1Megohms, thats about 2 million Ohms more than what it should be. Pressing the various cruise buttons had no effect. I’ll update the blog if the customer get’s to the bottom of it, but for now , the previous advice still applies – get yourself a Transit wheel with buttons from a high spec transit , or choose one from a CMAX MK1 ( 2003-2007). Try Breakerlink.com if ebay yields no result on your search. & stop looking for Focus MK2 wheels, as most are incompatible, which is annoying as they look 10 times better.

2014 Connect “MK2” 75ps 1600 TDCI Tuning result.

Well here is a 1st , a 75ps Connect MK2. I have only done 95 & 115ps versions up till now but am pleased to say the 75 makes the same power as the 95, I.E 120ps. Hugely improved. 115ps models will make about 133ps, & the differences in engine hardware are the reason. I have lost my notes but Turbo & DPF are the culprits from what i recall from studying Fords’s excellent Microcat parts system when the Mk2 came out..
