    In short no. A replacement ecu would need reprogramming with the existing immobiliser keys. At Vx...£60 at last check.

    Isn't that the standard 'We don't know what the hell is wrong so we'll replace the ECU' response that some dealers like to adopt?

    Hmm... I'm sure that's the case for my steering issue - they wanted me to have a new ECU and alternator...


    From what I've experienced, the CDTi 120 needs to be cranked a little when cold, it's perfectly normal
