    Main Dealer (UK) install a second hand ECU?

    Sorry but the INSTRUMENTS module gave me 'No fault code found'. The true result may still be that either I have (or merely had) an intermittent fault (which is stable once established) that was by fluke fixed either permanently or temporary by the various acts of interference with the system...

    Main Dealer (UK) install a second hand ECU?

    RESULT! Well, the main dealer did try to code the 'previously owned' ECU to the car, but failed. So to my first question - yes the dealer was cooperative (perhaps they took pity as I whimpered about cancelled holiday to pay for new parts) The main point however is that I stood my ground, and...

    Main Dealer (UK) install a second hand ECU?
