Incredibly I had the ECU stolen from my 2007 SAAB 9-3 2.0T Aero convertible. I have sourced a replacement ECU that I believe is correct, however my local SAAB expert cannot get past the security on the new ECU to clear it out and then marry it to my car. He has the genuine Tech 2 and the global TIS software etc.
I've ploughed a chunk of money into this car and I've just about had enough of it. I'm no SAAB expert but I know about computers. I believe that if we could just totally wipe the new ECU it would then let him go in and program it to my car. Am I right?
So, 3 questions:
1. What would be the most likely ECU number for a2007 SAAB 9-3 2.0T Aero convertible?2. Is there any way to find the car's original ECU's number from the car's VIN?
3. Is there a way of brute force wiping the new ECU (I'm thinking of a UV machine - but I don't want to de-solder the chips inside!). Would that possibly work?
Thanks in anticipation!
