Here follows the schematic diagram:

In order to insure the ECU protection, the Transil Diod has to be connected between the ground and the + wire which drives the ECU relay, that's to say after the fuse which protects the ECU.

Note that the original fuse protecting the ECU has a value of 15A (blue color) ; in order to limit the current in case of overvolting, the value of this fuse has been modified to 10A (red color).

1. Diod connections preparation.

2. Unmounting the fuse and relay stands.
