Hi all, havent posted for a while so id thought id kick back in :).

My mate has an AU XR8 which wont start. he took it to ford and apparently they told him it was a "keyed" unit which needed replacing which would cost him around 4 grand. Im not too familiar with these setups because i have always had E series but i am under the understanding that the module in question is native to the AUs.

Any help on this would be much appreciated such as what module im actually talking about lol, and other options to look at rather than him having to fork out that kind of cash. Thanks heaps :).

sounds like a bem issue... I'm guessing no cranking at all?

if so the unit us cheapis and they need to code it to the ecu which takes time..

had mine done was well under 1k....

but as Pete said, they should tell you what module it is, and yes they rip ya
