    Default Do I need Tech2 or could OpCom/VauxCom work?

    Have a friend with a Vectra with Z18XE engine, and probably dead ECM. He can get a "new" ECM who is properly tech2-ed out of donorcar (only £300, puh!). Should I be able to register the new ECM with OpCom/VXCom (guess Ill need the carpass, and of course find the correct button...), or do we have to go to a proper garage with tech2? Its pretty urgent (probably done tomorrow), and the car is situated pretty far away from a garage, so if we could use OpCom we would save some time and money...

    From what I know you can't use OP-COM for this sort of things, but I could be wrong. Good luck with the repair!

    IF you have a op-com with latest release ( i have one from oktober 09) there i could change the ECM and program a new one..

    (they had to make a new relase just to make my car work as nothing was working.. they found out they never made it compatable with the software/hardware in my car.. but they do now )

    but its not sure that a propper op-com/vaux-com would work with that car.. as not all hardware is in yet so probaly need tech2.

    OK. Thanks alot folks. Ill give it a try, at least.
    Its typical: When its snowing and freezing like %¤##, the car brake down many miles from home/garage/sivilisation Maybe its Moore's law or something
    The unlucky ******* is a mate on a norwegian Opel forum who lives close to me, so of course we have to help, huh?
