Should have said you can use the mondeo ecu but it's probably not worth the hassle as you 'll need to change the loom etc iirc.  :tired:

X(

 

Requires the whole loom? ?(

 

Couldn't the problem be sorted through a decent auto electrician?

 

Unichipping an ECU, which would under fuel the motor if it was unmolested, would be the last thing I'd do! :jaw:

the PATS for a start will not work if you do not have the correct ecu to match the engine type AND key chip

Dont know about that mate, what about when you upgade a 115bhp 1.8 to 130bhp spec by simply changing the ecu and cams? You can keep your original key and pats system.

 

 

we had this problem before wen sum1 did that, done the swap and car wudn start, all the dash lights and everything, no sign of the fuel pump pressurising or anything.

swap ecu back and it worked,

 

and from my experience i swapped by ignition barrel as i only had 1 key at the time and it snapped, so i changed the ignotion barrel and had to use the ECU from the car the keys came from.

 

i thought the sensor that was around the ignition barrel read the key and just told the ECU to start ETC... but the sensor/reader around the barrel is just universal, its the ECU :)

Hi, In my experience a decent auto electrician is very hard to come by! I'm a little confused by the second sentence what does it mean?

Second sentence means I'd rather not use a modified ECU. I'd prefer a standard 2L one compared to a unichipped 1.8 or 1.6 item :thumb:

 

I can beleive decent auto electricians are difficult to find. Just have to do a bit of research and find out what / who other people have used.

Hi, well I live in ireland mate and trust me they are hard to find, here they basically don't want to know about modified work at all. If it aint in the manual they seem to believe it cant be done. My first escort was a '92 1.3 carb, I converted it to run a '96 1.4 PTE. I was'nt to sure about the electrics so I rang around and nobody wanted to know anything about it. I attempted it myself and got it running just fine. I then had auto sparks and ford dealers telling me what I had done was impossible and one dealer actually refused to service my car!

You could use that ECU, but it would still underfuel.

 

That ECU will fuel enough for 1.8 litre capacity of air, not 2L. :O

 

 

now i'm far from an expert as far as ECU's go, but doesnt it do what you tell it too? IE: Overwrite it with a Unichip and it'll feul to your requirements?
