You can brick your ecu if you don't have an adequate power supply and an ICOM. Do not attempt this through the OBD Port. Don't ask me how I know.

Its only the CEL now, nothing else


So you did the swap without changing the wiring harness or any ECUs? Is your SMG ECU still connected or have you removed it?

If you connect the car to a charger it would be fine to use the OBD port?

This is strange because the threads I read on this forum suggested that the complete wiring harness will need to be replaced with one from a 6MT car.
