Hello

Yes its possible to re-programme another ECU to replace your current item
however you need the offical dealer diagnostic kit to do so its not a DIY option

what fault are you trying to fix?

my car was water damaged the engine has been replaced and i have now been told that the ecu needs replacing,

Expert:  Matt replied 3 years ago.
Hello Billy

if water got into the ECU then this is usually bad for them

what I'd suggest though is to have your item repaired as this is usally cheaper than buying a new one and there's no need to have everything re-programmed by a dealer
