Yes, and yes but the airbag light will be on.

Whether it is advisable to is a different matter, no airbags will fire in a crash (obviously) and the insurance position may be suspect. You might be perfectly OK coping with this but you can never legislate for the imbecile who feels the urge to drive into you.

I can reset crash data on these sometimes. It depends on whether the "ECU not reusable" error is present or not.

Why not use the one from the 1.7? :)

Afraid that's very unlikely as it will be locked.

I think the configurations are the same though, and I can change the VIN so it *should* all work...

So... the immo is in the REC, UEC, CIM, IPC, ECM. They need to have the same environment identifier and sec code so should come from the 1.9.

SDM module from the 1.7 with the same airbag config. Rest of ECU's can have sec codes and VIN codes changed as appropriate, to match the 1.9.

That should work eh? :)

leave the sec codes as they are and only alter the vin numbers and then alter the ecu's from 1.7 to either 1.9 or other, the only ecu that might need replacing would be the abs one and that should be a direct swap from the 1,9 as that will have the info in it any way

i have strated stripping out the red one, and have stripped out the entire wiring loom in the red one, and am putting it in the white one to avoid having to reprogram half or the ecu's just the airbag one im concerned about. i will also be transfering the roof airbags across to the white one. as they havent gone off and the wires are there.


also i dont have the veh pin code for the white one.
