following on from my previous post
http://www.peugeotforums.com/forums/307-38/307-problems-advice-needed-peugeot-making-me-curious-lol-15645/

peugeot still have my car,nearly two weeks! and still no further progress as such.....

i gave them my replacement parts and they have now screwed me over big time (or thats how it feels)

basically they said today they are now fitting the ecu and bsi to the car but they still dont know if that will cure the car!,they have also said that as i dont have the numbers from the new ecu then they have had to take the chip out of the new key and put in my old key to start the car,then i will lose one of my "working" keys,then they said that i will never be able to get a new key cut and coded as i dont have the codes? arrrggh

then they said that the car will adopt the mileage of the donor ecu!

i have no idea what this will be as yet,but my car has only done 70k,

surely the clocks can be changed to show true mileage?


hopefully an update tomorrow!!!

Sounds like you've probably upset them by sourcing your own parts. I've read elsewhere on here that the mileage can be changed to fit. If you try and get hold of the VIN of the donor car, then I'm sure you can get the codes to enable more keys if needed in the future.

yeah maybe mate but the guys there seemed happy when i said i would get my own bits,there ecu would have cost me £700!

they just keep fobbing me off.

have people have same issues with peugeot?

i just wish i had not got rid of my audi,they treated you with nothing but respect and no job was too small,they even fixed minor things for free without being under warranties and allsorts.

good job my impreza is reliable thats all i can say!


cheers

They arent lying about the mileage i'm afraid

If a bsi/ecu or a instrument cluster is replaced, whichever has the highest mileage will take over

Its to protect against people fitting a lower mileage part (ie clocking)

They might also be right about not being able to get another key, to code keys you need a 4 digit code (either by getting it off peugeot or off the plastic card supplied with the car)

However this 4 digit code will be specific to your original BSI/ECU, even if you requested the code again from peugeot they would come back with your original bsi/ecu code, not the one of the donor parts!

However i'm sure this one will have a fix, sure i've seen immo code calculators that work this out!?
