4). The settings in the Lockout tab affect the settings you can make in the other tabs. If the lockout tab shows you are locked out of a particular function, you will not be able to change it.
5). To change the functions locked out in the ECM:
  • Type the lockout password into the Group Lockout Password box. This enables the check boxes in the tab.
  • Check any functions that you want locked out (prevented from being changed), and uncheck any that you want to be able to change.
  • Enter the calibration password in the Password box (4 numbers).
  • Press Transmit to send the new lockout settings to the ECM.
