Tiger Truck speed control

    I recently purchased a 06 Tiger Truck with the small cab, (USED NO WARRANTY) auto trans. and a/c. The truck performance is very weak, :( it shifts very hard due to the speed and or rpm limits, it is so weak it will not shift into third gear due to the low rpm range. It has been on the scan tool and no faults were found. Anyone know of a way to bypass the speed controls? This truck has the Bosch ECU and from what I have been told the ECU controls the speed through the fuel system. Any help would be appreciated, this thing will give you whiplash when it shifts if your not prepared for it ! :frustration:

    Lots of views, No replies !

    Come on guys, I know someone out there had tried to speed these things up and make them stronger.... Its our nature to do just that. Im not trying to brake any rules or anything I just want to get it where it has enough power to operate properly with this automatic transmission. PLEASE, any helpful information will be appreciated.

    You might have to give it some time. Not many members here with Tiger trucks.

    E-mail the tiger truck support: support@tigertruck.com

    Here are the two numbers listed on the site as well:

    Your truck is fairly new, so surely a fix can be found.

    We have two 01's at work. On these units there is a coil on the side of the carb which is part of the governing system. When you remove the coil the governor is disabled and they cruise along at highway speeds like they never were governed. Not sure if your 06 is the same.

    Sounds like you have the A13 ECU, change it out to the A9 ECU and you just got rid of all speed controlls.

    Does anyone have a photo of the A13 ECU? I have a neighbor that acquired a 2003 Tiger Truck passenger van. Believe it or not, it even has factory a/c that blows cold. It has 3,500 miles on it, was used at Oak Ridge National Laboratory site and meticulously maintained. It shuts down @ 35 and he wants to eliminate this.
    Thanks in advance.

    This vehicle are regulated by federal law to do only 35 mph. On the model you have the speed is regulated by the ECU (A13). To make this unit go unlimited speed you will need the A9 ECU.

    Thanks for the replies, but I'm only asking for a picture of the ECU.

    We have about 50-60 tigers in my pace of work (oil Refinery). WhenI first got mine it was governed to 15mph. I knew I wouldn't be able to deal with it. What I found was the governor had 2 wires which cut power going to the ignition coil. I cut these wires and crimped on spade connectors at both ends. I then got a peice of 14 gauge wire and put male spades on the ends. I jumped the wire so it was just a closed loop again, this bypassed the governor, but if i ever had to take it to our shop I was able to hook the wires back up the way they originally were. It has been this way for about 4 years now and i have yet to have a problem.
    by the way the tigers are 02 or 03

    It's not my van, it belongs to a neighbor and I'm trying to help him get info regarding this issue since he don't have internet access. A simple picture of the ECU will help us locate it on the van, then he can decide what he wants to do from there. A picture is all I'm asking for at this time.

    Webmaster, please delete my account as I'm not getting the desired response. I'll look elsewhere.

    BaldEagle556 New Member

    I did get good responses, but not what I asked for. I wanted a pic of an ECU, which should be the same in other Tiger models. That request was ignored, therefore I'm moving on to other things. This site will be gone from my browser history and I've unsubscribed from reply notifications. Have fun.

    Call the office and I can help you with that. I don't think anyone has a picture of it.

    I too thought the response was great. As it appears that support for this model is limited. I don't understand why a picture is needed. Cheers!

    Wow! You deleted us from your browser history? I usually only do that if I want to hide my porn trail. Minitrucktalk must be worst than porn.

    Well, both are a bit addictive! Maybe there is a Chinese minitruck forum? I know I can always find different kinds of ummmmm...other stuff on the internet.

    Wondering if it's time to look at the wiring on my 94 or so Mitsu minicab for a solution similar to the oil worker guy---I forget his name, sorry---found on his Tiger? Sounds pretty simple, and may just be a standard way of limiting speed?

    Maybe I will try powering the coil from a different "ign on" power source, like a switch on/under the dash? Maybe this would also make for a theft-deterrent ignition cut-off as well.

    Anyone tried this?

    If you have the A13 ECU, change it out to a A9 ECU and it will go as fast as you wish. Call GLB at 214-884-2778 for your parts needs on Tiger Trucks.

    I just bought an 08 4 door tiger star with only 115 miles on it, it too is governed at 25 mph. Did u ever find a way around the govenor? Is relacing the ecm the only way and if so, where do you get the A9 ecm I read about
  29. bdmf3509

    The 3600010A13 controls the speed on the later model Tiger trucks. You can replace the ECU or you can replace the chip in the ECU. Call GLB Enterprise @ 214-884-6243 for more details. Here is a picture of the A9 ECU, if you have the A13, it will say A13 instead of A9.

    I have an 08 and have just replaced the ECU chip. It went from 25 mph to 56 mph. I also replaced the fuel pump and it cleared up the low end performance if that's helps.
