2012 Ford Focus ECU

Hi all,

I am currently conducting a research product and felt that you would be the best source of help.

I would like to know if it is at all possible to get hold of an Electronic Control Unit, working on the CAN BUS, from the brand new (2012) Focus.

If it is possible, where would be best to purchase one and how much would it cost?

Thanks!

Matt

rent one, buy the extra insurance, total it, and take the computer out.

Unfortunately, our budget wouldn't cover that. I don't think so anyway :S. Plus we were hoping for something slightly more legal!

There is hundreds of wrecked 2012 out there , I would start with car-parts.com and search
You do know the UK has a Diff ECU codes and slightly diff tuning as well as the tuning software for the US ECU wont work on the UK ECU codes

Part of the research is to determine how the ECU's communicate so we're not too worried about the codes and tuning etc. Thanks for the help though! Much appreciated.

$400 + shipping. I have seen a few wrecked ones too, they might have the PCM for cheaper.
