What is an event data recorder? Do you mean erase or uninstall?

Quote:
An event data recorder or EDR is a device installed in some automobiles to record information related to vehicle crashes or accidents. In modern diesel trucks, EDRs are triggered by electronically sensed problems in the engine (often called faults), or a sudden change in wheel speed. One or more of these conditions may occur because of an accident. Information from these devices can be collected after a crash and analyzed to help determine what the vehicles were doing before, during and after the crash or event. The term generally refers to a simple, tamper-proof, read-write memory device, similar to the "black box" found on airplanes (as opposed to the tape recorders and video cameras common in police vehicles and many commercial trucks).

As for removing it, I couldn't help you with that unfortunately.

Take the computer out and rig up an aftermarket racing type proximity switch ignition system. Then the engine would run and you can now remove all the other sensors we don't like too. I don't like Big Brother watching how I drive either. Maybe someone like the guys at Street and Performance in Arkansas could help with that. Would probably be their first Cobalt project so they might make you a good deal.
