      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Ford Focus 1.8I Ecu

    hmmm, ok. I will check the ECU from my other car as It did start up with it and the chip of course, the only thing i remember is it said OPEN instead of TEAR. do you know if Ford would be able to program keys (including the master blue chip key) into another ECU? Thanks again
  2. Ford Focus 1.8I Ecu

    Hi, you were right about the marking, this ECU pictured is the one that was loose in the car and is hopefully the original one! can you tell me which numbers I need to match up if i get an ECU kit, or does it not matter if I get a full kit, ecu keys locks etc. Many thanks
  3. Ford Focus 1.8I Ecu

    Hi, thanks for your answer, I forgot to put that sombody already put a 2nd hand ECU in and that was either dead or not programmed to the key! So I'm not even sure which is the original ECU as neither will run the car. (there was a 2nd ECU loose in the car) Regards
  4. Ford Focus 1.8I Ecu

    Hi everyone, I have recently bought a 2005 (mk 1 facelift) as a non runner, after a bit of messing about I have narrowed it down to the ECU at fault. I have an older 1.8i Focus i am running at the moment which i put the ECU in and it stared fine whereas it would not even turn over before! I am looking at getting an ECU kit off eBay and have seen some with all keys and locks ect, my question to you guys is that one listing i have seen says that it fits all different engine types and sizes. I would of thought that the ECU would have to at least be off the same engine in order for it to run? Can sombody confirm that any ECU from a mark 1 petrol or diesel would work? Thanks in advance. Regards, Chris.
