I wrote "all locks"  ;)

You earlier said that I didn't need the Engine ECU, have you changed your mind on that?
Nope, my comment meant that the 3.2 will happily run using a 2.6 ecu and vice versa...

You need the ecu from the donor as it is programmed to the chip in the key...

OK I see, thanks  :y

Older cars (94/95) had immobilisers behind glovebox. Post 96 don't.

Engine ECU is paired to immobiliser ECU, and the key transponders are paired to that.

The remote fobs are paired to alarm ECU.

On most cars, lock set consists of:
Drivers lock
Tailgate (on pre 2000 saloons and all estates)
I don't tolerate bickering, and I'm always grumpy.
And Lizzie Zoom says I'm a heartless bastid...and she's absolutely correct!
