Hi,

I've been visiting with pp2k a 207 (1.6 HDi, 9HZ) that won't start -- as I understand it because the engine ECU is showing as locked.

There are two BSIs, two ECUs, and three keys!

PP2k won't read one of the ECUs. It is presumed dead and to be the reason why a second one was obtained.

The 4-letter code is present and was used to programme successfully 2 of the 3 keys.

However the car still won't start.

I'm not entirely sure what "engine ECU locked" means, or indeed what needs to be done about it.

What I did notice in parameter measurements in the engine ECU is that the value for problems detected when transmitting the unlock code normally has value not defined but periodically briefly flashes BSI response incorrect.

The help text says check that the programmed electronic immobiliser code in the engine management control is the same as the one programmed in the BSI

My interpretation is that I need to put the 4 letter code into the engine ECU in order to ensure that it is the same as the one in the BSI and which was used to programme the keys. However, I cannot see anywhere to do this.

I suspect that the dead ECU is the one that matches the current BSI and 4-letter code. In this case the working ecu matches the other BSI for which we do not have the 4-letter code (but do have a 4-letter word).

Any suggestions?!

The thombnails you have attached are far too small to read. Best is to look online for 'free image sharing', upload to there and then copy and past the tags in your post. This way we can see the messages. unless for some reason it is not showing the correct images for me?


On observations, as you say, ECU and BSI need to be coded together for the car to work.

best thing would have been to get the ECU and BSI from the same car and then try them both.

where are you based?

ECU locked means couple of things, I am not fully peugeot clued up, but :

1) in Vauxhall cars, ECU locked means you can't make any changes to the ECU. You need the ECU code, to unlock it to make changes to it. You do that by doing into the ECU and enter security code. In peugeot it might be different.

2) It could be that the BSI and ECU aren't coded together and the ECU is gone into safety/immobilised so that the car doesn't start.

When you say car doesn't start, does it turn over at all but doesn;t start or does it not even turn over?

As regards to coding them together, you seem to have the code for the immobiliser/BSI. Isn't there a code for the actual ECU as well to enable programming of the ECU?

You might have to look in actuator tests or in diagnostics somewhere to reset the ECU/BSI or programme the ECU/BSI.

I had a vauxhall that had done the same thing and someone had tried to push start the car. With some of the vauxhalls, if you did that the BSI would lose its data and then you had to reset it. you would get a warning to say clearing the BSI can stop the car from working if code is not correct, but if the car is not running, you are not going to get any worse?

Hi there got your pm, i had a problem like that on my 307 a while back after some water damage to the bsi. Tried everything, in the emd i ended up having the ecu unlocked, they basically bypass the immobiliser from what i gathered... that was the only way i got it to work. It was a long while ago so i dont remember details amd i havemt owned a pug for a while but definitely sure that was the solution. I got it done with the guys at hdi tuning, top service and the ecu was back woth me in a couple of days. Email them at [email protected] and enquire, hope that helps u

ECU locked is the ECU is not getting the correct or any unlock code from the BSI. Either the BSI's & ECU's are mixed up or BSI may not be configured to correct ECU type etc (check coding matches car spec etc)

Does the beep test work, If yes BSI is seeing keys so I would then swap Engine ECU's over and see if the ECU unlocks.

Another option maybe to get faulty BSI flash read and copied/cloned to new BSI

Bsi needs to match the key as in beep test so coding keys to BSI sorts that BUT THE ECU needs to match the BSI you CANNOT use the wrong ecu with a different BSI

ALL 3 must match key BSI and ECU

From what you have said you need the 4 digit code for the replacement ecu set then it will unlock the ecu

ECU locked means it wont start it will unlock when all the codes match planet cannot recode ecus to different BSIs

As it was mentioned - beep test if keys are 'married' to the car. Check please the most silly things like fuses.

What faults PP is reading, what is the history of your car, why stoped working or pug was non runner from the begining. New engine ecu need to be reprogramed if was replaced. If I am correct the key code can be readed from you VIN number.

If the ECU was replaced then the immobiliser codes will be lost.
A manual BDM backup read of the original ECU restored onto the new ECU should fix this

Hi as the previous post says, if you have had to replace the ecu that might be your issue... from previous experience you would need to change the immobiliser transponder the bsi and the ecu all together, or get a blank ecu and have it all matched. If you have just swapped the ecu from another car then the ecu will still match the previous vehicle and will not work with your vehicle. The pp I had was quite limited with options and wouldn’t work that’s why I prefer to work with diagbox it’s easier to work with and I found had many more options and easier to navigate.. ...I found when using pp that it wouldn’t find my ecu It could well be the case that your original ecu is perfectly fine and pp was just unable to read from it... where are you located if you are close enough I could possibly arrange to meet and hook it up to diagbox ?

Additional Information

Many thanks for the reply's so far. Please let me add some additional information.

The car is actually mine, Richard "rwb" on here is trying to help me get it running. I took the car in lieu of a debt for some non car related work I did for its previous owner. It was a last resort to get some money back. I knew it was a non starter.

The car previously had an ecm problem where water had crept up the loom from the engine and damaged the ecm. A common problem I believe. The previous owner bought an exact part number match replacement bsi/ecm/key set from another car and says he swapped them all over to the non starting car as a set. He says he swapped them several times so he may have got confused as to which is which?

I am told all the replacement set is on the car but I have no way of knowing if this is correct. Certainly the "old" ecm looks to be water tarnished around its terminals and it will not communicate with PP2k. I don't know which bsi unit is the right one for the ecm in the car. I believe the right one is in the car but does anyone know how to check?

There are 3 keys with the car, a matching pair and another different key but I don't know which key is from which set. One of the matching pair of keys has been learnt by the bsi unit or I assume they have as the car beeps when you open the drivers door after trying to start it. The single key wont accept the bsi learning and the second from the matching pair may or not have been learnt as it does not beep as it should. One beep functioning key is enough at this stage.Interestingly both key types open the doors and turn the ignition switch.

The car turns over ok and the lights, windows and manual central locking from the key all works. It just won't start, its not firing. PP2K shows the ecm as being locked which I assume is why it won't start?

The The car display does say economy mode, is this significant at this stage or just an issue for later?

I don't have the registration or vin number for the donor car for the bsi/ecm/key set.

Please can anyone else make any further suggestions now that I have added this information?

I need to get the problem solved and preferably at relatively low cost otherwise I won't get back any of the money am I owed for the work I originally did for the previous owner.

Thanks.

Try reading BSI config and see what VIN is stored hopefully this will let you identify which is the original one.

If the key won't recode it will be for the other BSI as you can only code once but you can recode to original BSI if code is lost

It'll just be the immo codes lost.. really simple fix..
take the old ECU and get a BDM full read, then restore to the new ECU.
Your immo codes will still be on the old ECU so no harm done

You can read the vin in the replacement BSI as long as no eejit has changed it to match the car !! with planet then use that to get the pin code BUT from your additional info i recon you will need to sort wiring issues too its best to give ALL info from the start.

You would not go to the doctors complaining of a sore toe if you had chopped your leg off !

The car does not have any wiring issues, not sure where that came from?

Richard "rwb" who is kindly helping me asked the initial question. The initial question was a PP2K about where/how PP2K unlocks an ecm. It was not 100% specific to my car. I added the information to try to throw some additional light on the problem. That's why all the details were not in the first posting.

Good idea about reading the vin in the bsi, this will also confirm if the right matching bsi unit is on the car. Once I have the new vin from the bsi then I guess "trustme" or someone else can look up the correct pin code.

Thanks.

Anyone else?

Planet DOES NOT unlock the ecu the car does when the key/BSI/ECU are matching in your case they are not BUT you stated the ecu got filled with water from either washer pump or coolant temp sender so you DO have wiring problems and this may be the real issue

sounds like either not a matching set or a wiring fault, the set you bought may not have been working to start with

Update....

The BSI unit in the car was the original one and not the one from the new set of components.

I swapped the BSI to the correct one and Richard read the chassis number in both the BSI and ECM to make sure they matched.

I got the transponder code for the BSI and Richard entered it, all was correct. We then went to program a pair of keys.

PP2000 shows the key as present when the ignition is on but when the learning process is followed neither of the keys (one original one and one that came with the new set of components) seems to become learnt. Obviously the car still does not start.

Not sure why this is? How come the presence of the key is recognised by PP2000 but it won't learn the key to enable the car to start. Has anyone got any ideas what the problem might be and how to fix it?

Thanks.

Previously (with the wrong BSI fitted) the key programming process in PP2k went through fine, and in parameter measurements we could see that the BSI was accepting the key.

With the new (correct) BSI fitted the key programming process is now failing: "Failure of the programming of the key . please start again ."

After the failed programming attempt a new fault appears in the COM2000:
"Transponder chip internal memory writing fault (during programming of the keys) . Not characterised . Local ."
and
"Fault in communication with the transponder . Not characterised . Local ."

Screenshots attached -- hopefully visible this time.

Have you swapped transponder board from new bsi/ECU set into old keys or swapped lock set. As you cannot reprogram key to another BSI. You can only recode to original BSI

No. What? :confused:

I keep hearing people saying stuff about programming keys to different cars but I've never had a clear explanation about what can/can't be done and why.
So be my guest!
