Connecting COMPUSHIFT to Ford Coyote Gen II


This document describes how to connect a COMPUSHIFT controller to a Ford Coyote Gen II using the Ford Performance M-6017-504V 5.0L Controls Pack.

Making the Harness Connections

The harness provided by HGM for this configuration is part number CAN-3, and looks like this:

CAN-3 Harness

The gray two pin Deutsch connection on the COMPUSHIFT harness plugs into the black “T” connector shown on the left of the picture above. The two bare wires must be connected to the CAN connections on the Ford 16-way I/P Pigtail Connector provided with the Ford M-6017-504V 5.0L Controls Pack harness. Make the connections as follows, ensuring that you keep two twists per inch in the wiring:




HGM CAN-3 Harness -

Ford 16-way I/P Pigtail -
White/ Bu (PIN 13)


HGM CAN-3 Harness -

Ford 16-way I/P Pigtail -
White (PIN 12)


We recommend you solder and shrink sleeve the connections, but splices may also be used.

System Setup

With the wiring complete per above, turn on the vehicle but do not start the engine. Then do the following steps:

  1. On the COMPUSHIFT Setup app or handheld display, navigate to the “Vehicle Setup Menu”.

  2. Ensure that the transmission type is set correctly.

  3. Set the engine type on the COMPUSHIFT controller to “Ford Coyote II CAN”.

  4. Navigate to the dashboard on the setup app.

  5. Start the engine. Confirm that the engine speed and throttle position are reading correctly on the display and that you have no trouble codes.

Do NOT drive the vehicle until you have confirmed CAN communications are working properly and you have no trouble codes.

You can diagnose CAN bus problems by going to Diagnostics / Network Diagnostics on the CS Setup App. The CAN 1 Receive Count should be steadily increasing when the ECU’s are communicating correctly. The error counts should always be 0. If you do have errors, confirm that the CAN bus baud rate is set to 500kb in Network Setup.
