Used / New ECU Programming:

Engine computers and other control units are locked once programmed and the dealer cannot program them to another car. We have solutions for most models, saving you hundreds over buying a new module.

        ECM - programming

    • Used ECM's unlocked and programmed for your VIN and security.
    • SCN coding / Initial startup

        TCM (ETC / VGS) - programming

    • Used ETC / VGS valve body ECU's unlocked and SCN coded for your VIN
    • SCN coding / initial startup


Lost or Damaged Key Service:

Many models have 8 keys programmed when they are new. Once all 8 keys have been ordered and delivered to the owner, there are no more keys. If you lose all of your keys or they become inoperable, the dealership will replace control modules, costing up to several thousand dollars. If this happens to you, please contact us before taking this drastic step.

Lock Repair:

Mercedes locks, especially the ignition lock, are prone to wear and damage. We stock replacement parts and keys and can often repair the original lock.

Used parts available

We have a large inventory of good used ECU's for most makes. Check our inventory here.

FAQ's and tips

I cannot license my car because of a VIN mismatch. Why?
If you live in a metro area with environmental quality or DEQ inspections to license your vehicle, the VIN number in the engine computer must match your actual VIN. In some areas this may only apply to 2004 and newer vehicles. If you have failed to pass a VIN inspection, contact us.

Why did the dealer tell me I cannot install a used part?
Often this is true for the dealership and the equipment they are provided. The manufacturers want to sell new parts. So, they often "lock" an ECU once it is programmed to one vehicle. When the dealer tries to program it to another vehicle, their equipment will not allow it. Our specialty is "unlocking" these modules so they can be programmed again. Or, better yet, we can often program them in-house so they are ready to go when you install them. No trip to the dealer for programming will be necessary.
