put original ACU back in, along with nice new battery. only had one fault showing: N1 Control Unit internal error ( from dead battery, bump start or crash data? no idea).
Replacement ACU had 5, as can be seen:
Note 'intermittent after impact'
Think i've bought a dud. But need to check before going through attempted reimbursement procedure...
Checked that 'tamperproof' rivet still in bottom, but MES canny clear these 'fault descriptions' as they are no exact codes present.
this was the google translate conversation:
me: According to EPER this part number is a substitute for 60658009. VET: ZAR93200000071335 Will this be just a matter of install and clear codes? Thank you
him: Hello, thank you very much for contacting me, you, in fact, the airbag control unit with code 60665492 replaces the previous discontinued the 60658009, we must do absolutely nothing after installation will be immediately recognized, the important thing that his ***** 156 1.8 petrol has an airbag on the passenger side dashboard, thanks,
Yes it has a passenger airbag. Great, thanks for the quick response.
Hello Leandros, I heartily thank you for giving me the preferred purchase unit in question, but to be fair we anticipate that for sure you will have to clear the error, this happens: because for removal given that these are perfectly marching car, often probably on this occasion, is turned on again the instrument cluster x test various electrical parts inside the car, you know that if this function is carried out with the air bag removed, immediately marks the red light error, to delete elettrauto from any computer with diagnosis of generic ones, if you think it's a problem and would like to forgo the purchase you'll make the money back immediately, await you, whatever your decision will thank you too, Rosario greetings.
I understand that once installed, I need to delete the errors (I will use alfaobd). I just wanted to check that 'the crash data' that can not be cleaned, will not be in ECU. Thanks again for all your advice, and hope to do more business with you in the future. Cheers
Then I will, tomorrow I can send, Rosario greetings
