Are the Canbus wires from the can connector to the DLC required to do the replace ecu command on the immobilizer? I wanted to get the ECU swapped over during the week and then spend the weekend taking the dash apart to run the wires. Is that possible, or does the 07 ECU only work on CAN and won't communicate with the HDS without those wires in place?
Thanks. I'll take that as a yes, the 07 ECU uses CAN to communicate to the HDS. I have my own HDS, and I was able to connect to the 04 ECU with no problem. When I connected the 07 ecu, I would get a prompt asking if it had a push button start, but it wouldn't connect. I wasnt sure if I was just getting a communicatiion issue with the HDS to car or not. I'll connect the CAN wiring and try again.
