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)
ignition
Glovebox.

Ok so now I'm about to put this lock and stuff in t0 the other car. But I have some problems to get the ignition lock back in the last bit. It's about 2mm left for it to slide in.

I have moved that part in the bottom of the cylinder down but there seem to be something in there that prevent it from going all in. The key is in the I (one) position.

I'm afraid to force it in and getting it wrong and stuck in there.

Any advice?

Thanks

Ok I got it in now  :)

That part in the barrel that you shall push down with a screw driver didn't come down the last bit when I tried earlier. Probably because the steering wheel wasn't straight ahead. When adjusting the steering wheel I could get it down all the way so that it stayed there and the lock just glided in  8)

Thanks
