Default Does the odometer work without the ecu plugged in?

I just got my WRX set up to the tow vehicle behind my rv and was wondering if the miles will show up if I tow it with the ECU unplugged.

I dont think it would even with the ECU plugged in as long as you were in Neutral, which you will be Id hope

Also it wont work if the Battery is unhooked, no power = no reading.

edit: the guys in the electrical and lighting forum may know better...

make sure you put a cover over your car, i've seen alot of cars pulled by RV's with the bumpers uncovered and what not, thats just asking for a chipped up windshield, hood, and front bumper

You can also just unplug the speed sensor harness from the sensor where it goes into the side of the gearbox (next to the downpipe on the passenger side of the tranny)... just throw a piece of duct tape over the contacts on the sensor to keep it from getting gummed up from road grime.

I was thinking of getting on of those clear film bras on the front and installing on of those rock guards on the back of the rv.


I am going to post over in the electical forum. It would be nice to not have to go under the car to disable it.

thanks

I replaced my ecu in my car with a Link+ wire-in. The odometer still operates.

I would like to do the same on my forester, is this the white cable that connects to the tranmission on the pasenger side, that is the only one I could find but it appears to be connected to the gear selector aswell.

Thanks
Kevin
