Ford Falcon AU 1999

Postby cobra679 » Mon Oct 15, 2018 8:48 pm


I'm very new to this and would like to get started by reading the chips on my ford falcon au 1999 ecu and bcm. Just wondering what hardware and software would I need to read these chips. End goal is to disable the smart shield or modify it and unlock its secrets so I can start the damn thing. I'm pretty sure I stuffed the transponder in the key when I was messing around with a Chinese clone zed-bull.

Thanks for your help

Please be kind

Is it a series 1 or 2?
Being 1999 it should be series 1.
Does it have a "smartshield" decal/sticker on the rear quarter windows?

If it is series 1 and doesn't have a smartsheild decal, I believe it will use "smartlock" not "smartshield" (older security system used since EB).

Ive made modules to bypass the smartlock system:

I believe they will work on AU series 1 with smartlock but I have never had the chance to test one to know for sure.

I'll give you a discount on one if you're interested, and you can let me know if it works or not.

If it has smartsheild then it definitely won't work so we won't bother.
