  1. No. The only thing ive read in the pats guide is when replacing the pcm you need two keys. As for your part number the only important bits are 7m5t and the first of the two letters after the numbers. The first letter represents options the car is configured for eg cruise control. If you get a D as the first letter its good for everything except st and cc models. So if you get 7M5T xxxxxx Dx where x can be any letter or number it should be good. You then just need a elm327 cable and some free software to write your cars spec to it. If you got a brand new one from ford it would be a model number as above because although they made 100's of varients on the production line they only sell the D type enabled for all as a replacement. As said above though i need confirmation that a second hand unit can be used by someone thats done it as im told by ford only a new virgin unit will work.
  2. A local breakers mate. Whats ya part number? See from everything ive read the keys are stored in the dash cluster and tied to the pcm. Nothing pats related with the gem. If naz can confirm he used a used unit with no trip to dord or someone with ids access im gonna take the plunge.
  3. Nazsky786. Can you confirm that you installed a used fusebox in your car and all you needed was to tweek in elm? I need to change mine for same reason and ford say new unit will go straight in but a used unit wont work as it codes to car. Obviously this sounds like ford bs. But i dont wanna waste £30 on a used unit if it wont work. Thanks Colin
