    Default Airbag ECU fault code B1000 (c5).

    Hi all,

    sorry my third post is a request for help.

    So i had an airbag light on, which after having the codes read, came back with a B1000 fault (ecu failure).

    The trouble im having (after buying a second hand one off ebay and finding i need the exact same one as the faulty one , i know, i know) is finding one that matches my car/part number. I have come across loads of ecu's but not one is the same. The part number is 13142540.

    My question is, if i find one with the same amount of pins would it work, or are there compatible (same ecu, different part number) ecus about. I find it hard to get my head around the amount of different airbag ecu's i have come across, but have yet to find one with the same part number.

    Vauxhall want £440 for a new one, which just isn't an option for me at the moment.

    General info: Cleaned all contacts just in case. Had the codes read again just in case. Car is a 2003 DTI LS.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Do you know the ident code of yours? It may help others in pointing you in the right direction.

    Problem solved. I found a replacement part. Turns out the ecu i was after was superseded by another part. For future information, just in case someone ever has the same problem the part numbers are as follows..

    Original Airbag ECU Ident: GP Part Number: 13142540

    Compatible ECU Ident: CL Part Number:13129843


    Hope this helps someone

    Hi, all. I have the same error code for my 2.0 DTi Vec C. I also have the part number GP13142540.
    If I find one with the same part number, can I simply plug in and continue or does it need coding with my data? I have spoken to various “experts” regarding this and the opinion is split 50/50. What is the correct method?
    Appreciate any help. Thanks
