Ecm failure causes

no year?, hopeless.
my wild guess, cell; phone?
and 1983 Accord, with ECM flash code 13?

did you look here first then ask questions.

this is a Carb car right?
if car is EFI
13 means bad baro sensor, in non science terms
that means a bad MAP sensor.
the MAP is used to calculate all air flowing in to the engine
and this allows the ECU to inject a perfect fuel mix.
if 13 happens the eCu goes to limphome and sucks fuel like crazy.
13, means bad wires to MAP or bad MAP or bad vacuum line to MAP.
a tech, checks all 3, and then tests the MAP and the problem is solved. the FSM is free, ask.

really a 1983? very very old.... tjhat...

Could not unlock maps


If you are having troubles accessing the pre loaded mapping then you may need a firmware update, if these are maps that you have installed make sure they are compatible authorized maps.
If you try this and all fails contact Garmin customer support.

Hope this helps!

Purchesed download for magellan western canada map and cannot download to my triton 400 gps

Hopefully the download is an .imi or .rmp file and the serial number is matched to your GPS. If so, just move the map to your SD card under the folder /MAP_DATA. Start your GPS and activate it.

The map has to be authorized by Magellan so make sure it is to your GPS serial number.

When I power up the roadmate 300 says there are not maps....the drive shows that they are there ? when I connected to computer with disk asked for authorization code.....would not let me enter one...called...

Unfortunately the authorization code comes from Magellan so there is no way for us as end users to bypass it. I would call back to Magellan and ask to speak to a supervisor or manager. Someone there has to be able to provide the authorization codes, tell them you have a very popular blog and plan to let everyone know just how horrible Magellan's customer service is unless they help you. It is ridiculous that they would be holding you hostage essentially like this. I wish I could provide you with the authorization codes but unfortunately it is tied to the unique identifier from your magellan unit, and the serial number of the map software, both things that Magellan can easily check, and then provide you with the code.

I would keep calling until someone gives it to you, that is simply not acceptable.

So sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but noone on here will be able to give you those codes, it is a manufacturer dependent thing.

Good luck, sometimes it just takes a little persistence, and like I said, make sure you are talking with at least a level one supervisor.

I cannot unlock the maps

Garmin mapping software comes with a security number. You need to contact Garmin and they will give you this number, if you purchased your maps through them or an authorized dealer.
