The coding of the ECUs to the in-built vehicle factory fit immobiliser system has been standard practice with most vehicle manufacturers since the mid nineties. ATC's remanufactured range includes a large proportion of ECU's that have been designed to operate independently of the in built vehicle immobiliser system.
This option creates two potential benefits:
(1) An ECU can be fitted to a vehicle without having the inconvenience and cost of programming it to the immobiliser. Sometimes referred to as “plug and play”.
(2) If there is a fault diagnosed with a vehicle immobiliser system, then a “free running” ECU will bypass the immobiliser system. The free running option can get the vehicle back on the road even when the ECU wasn’t the cause of the problem in the first place avoiding the cost of diagnosing and replacing the suspect immobiliser parts (i.e instrument clusters ,immobiliser modules and keys)
