Routing the ECM ribbons

The ECM Plug in adapter is connected to the MIMA distribution board with a 16 conductor ribbon. Because the ribbon is in contact with the rug and floor pan, we covered the ribbon with duct tape to give the ribbon more abrasion protection. The rug is lifted, and the ribbon is gently routed to the rug cutout in the front of the shift console, under the distribution board. The ribbon wants to sit flat on the floor pan and as it passes up the the shift console. The ECM side will be plugged into the 16 pin header on the ECM plug in board, and the other end to the ECM header on the right of the distribution board. Once this is connected and the wires dressed, the rug can be placed back in position.
