Question 2009 Bluebird AARE 8.3L 3000PTS TCU Location

I've tried following the wires from the tranny, but they just seem to disappear either forward in the body or up toward top of engine and don't seem to go to anything that appears to be a TCU looking device.


Anyone know where the TCU is located on this particular chassis?

Mine is a front engine, but behind the windshield wiper door. Easy to check, but might be wrong for you. Bluebird did a good job of hiding all the wires into the shared harnesses.

First of all, it sounds like you may not know what you're looking for which means you could be overlooking it. I've done that myself - if it had been a snake it would have bit me! So I've attached a couple pics from Google search what the TCU should look like for your transmission. Hopefully that helps you locate it.

tcu location

I have a 2000-2001 Thomas pusher w/MD3060 and my TCU was mounted under the left headlight. I assume bc it's tied directly to the shifter and then back to the trans.

Are you unlocking OD?
