How to check if Hondash will work with my ECU?

  1.   3 pin or 5 pin diagnostic connector (DLC)

    All Honda models produced in 1992 - 2001 that use the 3 pin or the 5 pin DLC diagnostic connector are compatible with Hondash. If you can find either the 3 pin or the 5 pin diagnostic connector in your car, your ECU is compatible.

  2.   Immobilizer

    If the immobilizer in your ECU was modified (physically removed, etc.) you may not be able to use Hondash

  3.   Aftermarket / Chipped ECU and other mods

    If you're using aftermarket, remapped, chipped or otherwise modified ECU, modified or swapped wiring harness, etc., follow the guide on Aftermarket / Chipped ECU to make sure your setup will be compatible

Tested / Compatible ECU OBD table

This check is optional, only the above-mentioned steps are important and required to determine compatibility with Hondash. However you may check the table to see what ECU versions have already been tested by us. You may find your ECU listed here, if not, just make sure your ECU meets the criteria described in the above-mentioned steps.
