We've now added also a Type 3 - 4 pin relay plug which is mainly for the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, V8 Vantage and V12 Vantage. It has 4 identical terminals of 6.3mm.

Every day, several Smart eMT ECUs are installed on different car brands & models and eliminates the single point of failure which is the OEM F1 pump relay.

Received this feedback today from a happy UK 360 owner who made a very clean installation in no time.

His feedback:

"Relay fitted, a marked difference in gear change.

Good product."

Another interesting testimonial from a knowledgable 360 owner:

"About a month ago, I had problems selecting gears on the F1 system.

Traced the fault to the F1 pump relay, replaced same. OK.

Whilst looking on the Internet, found your company.

Prior to fitting your relay, went to a gearbox specialist, to check the mechanical system,
This all ok.

Tested for a good separate earth, and installed your Smart eMT relay ECU.

Found improvements on all gear shifts, especially up.
Gear selection much smoother, and feels more responsive.

Smart eMT ECU installation made by a UK AMOC member on his Aston Martin V12 Vanquish. Works like a charm and dangerous pump relay issues are now part of the past!

How to reset the Smart eMT Relay ECU

SMART eMT F1 RELAY ECU

If you need to reset the eMT ECU to its factory defaults, we made this very simple THREE STEP video guide which can be used in addition to our complete Installation & Configuration manual.

Please follow the video instructions to reset your eMT ECU to the factory defaults. This will also erase all logged hydraulic pump faults.

This video guide applies to all cars: Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini or Aston Martin

How to set 11 secs min pump rest time

SMART eMT F1 RELAY ECU

If you had sometimes the fault code 7 what means that the hydraulic pump is cycling too often (less than every 15 secs), there is a way to configure the eMT ECU allowing a minimum pump rest time of 11 secs (default is 15 secs).

We made this very simple THREE STEP video guide which can be used in addition to our complete Installation & Configuration manual.

Please follow these video instructions to set the hydraulic pump rest time to the minimum value of 11 secs. Although, you should always check why your pump is cycling too often and make sure you don't have a pressure loss issue which can be caused by a failing pump, leaks, worn hydraulic accumulator or E-DIFF valve.

This video guide applies to all cars: Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini or Aston Martin

Excellent videos! Thank you Stef!

I need to reconfigure mine as I always get the 7 beeps every time I go for a drive.
I recently had my F1 fluid flushed and system recalibrated and it still beeps 7 times so perhaps its time to change the settings.
This video helps a lot.

Thanks again!

Many thanks Dan,

If you always get the fault warning nr. 7, it means that your pump is cycling too often. As per Ferrari specs, the pump should not prime during more than 4/5 secs and maximum every 15 secs. Also, the pressure should hold for a least 4/5 gear shifts.

If your pump primes more often than every 15 secs, except if you make really many down/up shifts like on track, it's a sign that you have a hydraulic leak (actuator or E-DIFF valve) or your accumulator is almost out of gas due to a worn internal NBR diaphragm. This can be easily checked with the SD3 or a manometer: if the pressure drops progressively without gear shifts, you have a leak somewhere - don't ignore the E-DIFF valve as a leak there is quite common. If the pressure remains constant but drops suddenly as soon as you make a gear shift, then you have a worn accumulator.

I'm sorry to say Dan but fluid flush and re-calibration won't fix the root cause of your issue.

As a temporary solution to make the Smart eMT ECU stop alerting you, you can reduce the rest time to 11 secs as explained in the above video but I highly recommend to get your car checked. A pump that is cycling too often will wear much faster.

Hope this helps you and please let us know the outcome.
Best wishes,
Stef

Hi Stef,

As always, thanks for sharing great info.

Three weeks ago I had my F1 System fluid flushed, bled, system checked and calibrated using Leonardo computer by my independent mechanic. He said there were no system faults stored, no evidence of fluid leaks and my F1 system is now recalibrated per Ferrari Specs.

I still do get the 7 beeps from your eMT relay whenever I drive my car spiritedly. There are a few of us on the FChat board including me that get the 7 beeps after upgrading to your relay.

So my question is since my F1 system has recently been serviced and checked and recalibrated, no evidence of fluid leaks and I still get the 7 beeps do you think I should get my Hydraulic Accumulator replaced ASAP so as not to trigger the 7 beeps issue instead of just adjusting the warning beeps?

Thanks always for all your help.

Dan

Hi Dan,
You're always very welcome.

On all cars where a fault warning 7 was reported, it was justified and helped the owners to take action before the issue was getting too serious. In your case, I would recommend that your mechanic makes a pressure test as I described previously: "This can be easily checked with the SD3 or a manometer: if the pressure drops progressively without gear shifts, you have a leak somewhere - don't ignore the E-DIFF valve as a leak there is quite common. If the pressure remains constant but drops suddenly as soon as you make a gear shift, then you have a worn accumulator."

If your accumulator is the original one, there is a good chance that it started running out of gas. I would start there as any way an accumulator should be replaced after 10 years as it's a maintenance part. If it still doesn't fix this issue, then the E-DIFF valve must be checked as it's also a maintenance part.

Got it and it makes sense to me.

I will have my mechanic do pressure test and also replace hydraulic accumulator soon.

Thanks Stef!

New Smart eMT ECU firmware release - Advanced version only - V2.95

Since some users were getting a bit confused with the different Smart eMT ECU beeps, we released a new version, V2.95, where the normal pump activation beeps are now disabled by default.

That means that with V2.95, only real alert beeps will be heard. Each alert has a specific fault code & meaning as explained in the installation & user guide.

If one wish to still hear these beeps each time the pump primes, he can always enable them in the ECU configuration settings. This can still be very useful if you want to monitor/check the pump cycles while driving and without having to watch the monitoring module.

I think this is a very good change Stef as some of the guys on the FChat board wants to silence the beeps except for valid faults.

Is this change something we can do ourselves?

Many thanks again for this great product.

Many thanks Dan,

You can silence the normal pump running beeps as explained in the video above : http://www.ferrarilife.com/forums/mo...tml#post729969

Although, if the pump is running longer than the default configured value of 4 secs, you'll still get warning beeps up to V2.94. These beeps are now also disabled by default in the new V2.95. With V2.95, you'll get the fault beeps only if the pump is running longer than 10 secs (default configured value of 4 secs + 6 secs). With your version, you can still configure the ECU by setting the default normal run time to a higher value to avoid such beeps. Of course, doing this will hide the evidence of an issue in the hydraulic system.

Hope this helps,
Stef

Available directly on our website or through already many workshops worldwide, the Smart eMT ECU is one of the key upgrades on cars like Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini or Aston Martin. Not only the eMT ECU will watch for you your F1 hydraulic system, it also eliminates many issues caused by the stock stone age relay like voltage peaks which can destroy eventually the TCU. In addition to normal operation, the eMT ECU can also be used to monitor and diagnose the F1 and/or E-DIFF hydraulic system. This has already been much appreciated by workshops which allows them to make a quick diagnosis during test drives without requiring any specific diagnostic tools.

This is an installation made by a very knowledgeable USA F430 owner:
"I also have Scud ING Swiss F1 relay and feel confident that I have eliminated the failure-prone OEM relay and can now monitor pump performance."

We love to receive feedback like this one: "Amazing product, so happy I was able to catch these faults at an early stage." where on a F430 from a USA owner, the Smart eMT Relay ECU once installed, immediately diagnosed an upcoming issue on the F1 hydraulic system.
