Right here goes,
i bought a 1998 1.6 corsa sport engine to go in my 1.2 corsa ls, and got everything i needed to make it a straight swap apart from the key(with the chip in) and the transponder from the donor car. i didnt realise i need them until someone told me i needed them to disable the imobliser on the new ecu. i phoned the guy up who i got the engine off and he said he'd send me them, about a week has passed now and he claims that he cant find the key and that he cant get me the transponder cos its part of the ignition and he cant get to that cos the steering locks on, which he needs the key to get off.
the reason for this post is bcause im at a loss and need to find out if there are any other ways of getting around this problem as i was meant to be fitting the engine today.
could i just take the ecu somewhere and get it flashed then matched up with me original key/transponder or do i need the ecu's original key/transponder to do this etc etc.
any help would be massivly appreciated and speed up the whole process of me fitting the engine in and getting it running.
