Hey I have an 04 manual, will I be able to just pop in your new flashed ECu without having to do anything to the imobilizer?
The days of simply swapping ECU's is long gone. If you just "pop" in the new ECU, your car will not run.
To swap TSX ECU's, the VIN number needs to be re-entered into the new ECU plus the RFID/Chip keys will need to be re-synced.
Both which need a dealer tech to do.
For example, drive your car to the dealer. Swap ECU's in the dealer parking lot. Have the dealer tech do his thing. Drive home.
Don't buy a used 2004-06 ECU at any price. Buy a 2007-08 TSX ECU which opens up several ECU flashing and customizing options.
