    Could be wrong but arn't the ecu linked to main ecu ... i.e. one will only work with its parent ecu... but then again tech2 could possibly get round that like you say....

    Vehicle : Vectra

    theres a couple of options open to you. You can either try to get it reset via tech2, but failing that you can swap it over for an exact copy of what you have already. ie if it has rear seat belt pretensioners then the one you fit must it as well. Only downside is you'll never be able to get into the airbag ECU via programming due to it having a code not for your vehicle and also its locked upon first programming..


    Soo... either try to get it reset via tech2, or fit an exact matching airbag ECU
    Plasma's Tech2 services are now partially open and able to provide services
