    ECU location??? Astra g 1.6 x16xel 3dr hatch

    Hi,
    Just want to know where the ecu is located? Is it on the engine or whats the story? What does it look like? Im moving a 1.6 engine and its ecu to another astra which was originally a 1.4, with regards the ecu is it litteraly ''plug and play'' and where is the key transponder located? must that be moved with the engine and ecu too? Any help appreciated, thanks.

    On mine the ecu was bolted to the passenger side of the engine just below where the coil pack plug was. Its a square ish silver thing with 2 big plugs going to it. With the 1.4 and 1.6 it should be interchangebale on the same loom. The key transponder is around the lock barrel. If you take off the trim around the steering column it lives behind there. You cant miss it, its got the circle around the lock barrel and then continues down for a couple of inches to a plug at the bottom. The chip in the key also needs swapped over. Thats the little black thing in the bottom of the blade bit of the key. As long as the ecu, chip and transponder are kept together for whatever engine is being swapped all will be well
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it
