    Question Airbag ECU

    The airbag light on my vectra came on a few weeks ago for no good reason and has remained on ever since.

    Anyway Mark (GSI3.2) ,Aka birthday boy (Happy birthday) connected it up to his super computer the other night and diagnosed a defective airbag ecu.

    The actual model number is 13118804 ident code AQ.

    Anyway after Mark told me the cost of a new ECU I have been searching the net for a solution and came across the following on ebay.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AIRBAG-ECU-MOD...QQcmdZViewItem

    Has anyone on here used this company. Any feedback welcomed

    Thanks for that , it seems they pretty much offer the same service.

    Ideally I would prefer a service that's more local, failing that I think I'll just give one of them a try. It's beats vauxhall prices !!

    no luck with the other searches H?..

    just remember.. all you want is the module.. i can do the programming for you.. so if they are happy to do an exchange unit i'll swap it all over for you..

    I had a problem with my 52 plate vectra airbag ECU, nightmare, I tried a company who said they could repair it, they could not.

    I do not think its possible.

    I saw an ecu for sale on ebay, the guy who bought it said he put it iun his car and the light went out.

    So I think the best bet, is to buy another ecu.

    the main problem is the ECU's are 'locked' when they are programmed.. so whatever system you use has to be able to 'unlock' them first to erase any stray data.. this also doesn't work if the boards are damaged at component level...

    new ECU's thou are stupid money ..£300+ for the last one and thats with all the discounts/kickbacks etc that i could apply to it..

    if it's going to be a 2nd hand one it HAS to come from the same model car with the same electronic modules being used as the old unit..or it will need reprogramming which then goes back to the problem of it being 'locked'...
