    The recoding....

    Is this pushing data from the ECU to the clocks (Mileage showing on clocks of that of the ECU) or the other way round so that the clocks Mileage imprints in to the ECU so the mileage doesn't change?

    Probably such a retarded question :(

    Thanks non the less :)

    At what year does the leon change to immo3? I did my first immo2 dash swap yesterday, real easy stuff! The problem im finding a lot it when a faulty cluster is in the car and the pin cant be read, then you need professional tools to recover the pins, not #20 ebay cables.

    Some of the newer ECU's require PIN code. I am able to retrieve pin code and code these ECU's or if you have two ECU's... I can clone them... :)

    Hi, is it possible to code an IMMO 2 cluster to an IMMO 3 ECU?
    I'm doing an engine swap 1,4 (AHW) to 1,8T (AUQ) and as it turned out the factory cluster is IMMO2. Spent all day trying to align the pin codes etc. but without any success :(

    Just remap your 180, you'll get 240+ then

    Yes, posted a new question, not replied to one from ages ago :D

    Anyhow it's irrelevant now... IMMO2 cluster and IMMO3 ECU can't work together :(

    Just had a second hand ecu put In my car as the other wasn't reading codes or couldn't communicate. Also had a full service done, a week later no power in car foot flat to the floor and car dies, my car starts and I can reverse but once I put it to drive it stalls. Cleaned egr it was clogged but now it wont keep any revs. Do I need the ecu looked at or is there some thing I'm missing
