In the Scrap Yard today...

I found a really good condition red Sei for sale AND inside a White Fiat Tipo that had only a smashed window and not even a car on top of it I found....


Another Haynes Owners WorkShop Manual


Is it correct that the scrap yard wanted to charge me 150 for the ECU?

Your so fat Dave ECU for a Tipo, a Digiplex II I was going to take it just incase but I got the feeling I should ask before I dismantle as it was cold and didn't fancy walking all the way back to me motor for tools then to come back dismantle try to buy it only to be told 150... which almost happened.

Re: In the Scrap Yard today...

if you buy the ECU from a car can you ask them for the red key and when can it save you the hassle of getting fiat to recode everything?

Re: In the Scrap Yard today...

Tipo's just have a Key... and another key which is the same as the first key but sometimes the handle is round and not cylindrical(SP)

I did get offered the Keys and the Locks as part of the 150 ECU+Key+Lock Package.. didn't know why I would need the locks or the Keys but It were just an enquirey.

Does anyone want a Tipo Hayens Petrol Manaul, 1988 - 1991 1372cc - 1580cc?
