Hi yes I was quoted 50 pounds to have it reprogrammed they just plug in to the ecu and take the limiter off you don't need a new ecu

Re: Fiat doblo limited to 68mph

I contacted T-Vans who were advertising doblo vans with the option to remove speed limiter in the advert.
Took him a couple of mins.
Can't really understand main dealer not being able to do this?

Re: Fiat doblo limited to 68mph

You need to disconnect the Pulse Wire - takes a couple of mins and done.

The repercussions if this is a company vehicle are beyond severe, so resist if you have a mortgage, family or life that relies on your income. If you can throw that away for an extra 10mph or something, then go for it.

Don't forget your ECU records much more than you think it does......

If private, you can do what you wish - don't forget to tell your insurers though as in the result of an accident, they will look for any excuse to walk away, especially if a high speed and valuable claim.

If I do this, you must understand it is at your own risk, and is not advised.

That You are aware of the implications: Under certain cirumstances you may find you have nullified insurance, If involved in a fatal accident and the modification is found you may be prosecuted or imprisoned as a result (chances are slim but no unknown - a Lorry driver with switched limiter sentenced 7 years for a fatal accident where speed was a major factor)

Let me know year and I will let you know the VSS - If over a certain age, it may have an interface added to convert in which case will need to know model for exact colour. If you are reasonably competent, I can tell you which to avoid snipping....which is more important!

Re: Fiat doblo limited to 68mph

UPDATE,
MultiECUScan,
can apparently set a predetermined range of speed limits, in the FIAT ECU's settings.
