Yes you can, but it is NOT advisable to transfer the identity of another car (including the chassis number) into your own car. Doing so may also result in you transferring all the faults of the car into your own vehicle, so we advise you not to do it.
It means the item is coded and it must be Recoded or Reprogrammed to your vehicle.

To transfer the code from your original unit (ECU, ABS, etc) there are two ways:
  1. Using a suitable diagnostic tool and software, plug into the vehicle's diagnostic socket. Then READ the code file and press save. Now plug in the replacement unit (ECU, ABS etc...) and load the original saved file into it.
  2. Send us your original (ECU, ABS etc...), and we will transfer the code for you. When you receive it back you can just plug it in. You don't have to do anything else. It doesn't matter if your ECU is dead, burnt or won't communicate, we can still transfer the code from it. This is a 24 hour turnaround service.
This means the item is not coded and does not require coding or programming. It can be swapped with another one without you having to do anything else; it is plug and play.
It means the item cannot be coded away from the vehicle, and must be recoded at a main dealer or an auto electrician, using an appropriate tool and software. In this case, we do not offer the reprogramming service.
All vehicles manufactured before 1995 will not require coding or programming.
Generally, there are only a handful of Electronic items that will require programming:

  • Engine Management ECU's (after 1995 must be reprogrammed)
  • ABS ECUs (only some of them will require coding)
  • Automatic Transmission ECU's (only some of them will require coding)
  • Speedometers, Instrument Clusters (only some of them will require coding)
  • BSI / Fuse boxes (only some of them will require coding)
  • Air Conditioning Control Panel (only some of them will require coding)
