What New York says I can do with my car and what I can actually do with my car are, to me anyways, different things.Why would you want to disabled/removed them ? Most EDR's are part of the Air Bag system anyhow. Besides, if you live in New York its illegal to disable them.
Regarding EDR...It is your gasoline (or diesel) which powers the engine, which powers the alternator, which powers the EDR. The box is your property, the data is your property, if you want to erase it, or destroy the box, go ahead. I'd like to see them try and subpoena something that doesn't exist.
And if there was one, I would just try to figure out how it stored the data... Flash memory (most likely), hard drive, any of various other storage media, and disable that part. You're definitely right that that it would be a beast-load of work, but I figured I could go grab a random PCM from a junkyard and try it first.How would you even be able to disable them? To me it sounds like you would be cutting into the PCM and anyone would surely wreak havoc trying to reassemble it.
Just wanted to know why you would want too that's all.:biggrin:What New York says I can do with my car and what I can actually do with my car are, to me anyways, different things.
