    Is there any speed limiter inside the ECU? Because just happen my car cant go any faster than 160kmh. The RPM is at around 5k+ when it is 150kmh+, when the speedometer hit 160kmh the RPM will jump to the redline.

    By the way, my car is EJ/EK auto 1.6 vtec. The ECU code is 37820-P6X-T51

    Just pull out the ECU and there's no sign of burn or leaking caps. Testing the car again yesterday. Just notice the sudden surge of rpm is actually caused by from 5th gear drop to 4th gear. Mechanical fault i guess, time to convert to manual tranny :driver:
    Btw, is it ok to convert to manual but still using auto ECU :confused:

    Another symptom of ECU trouble especially for P27 ecu is ... check light take 10-15mins before goes off....
    After that car can start normally abd drives normally....
    However later or next day... same trouble again... wait wait.... 20 mins now then 30 min .....

    Hi Shiro,

    I have troubleshoot this problem before for my P30 ECU. Just my 2 cents.... From what i read,PA sensor only exist in USDM ECUs, so when i did my Uberdata, if i didn't disable the PA sensor, there will be CEL. Not sure if its the same case as yours...
