    That's what my local dealership's service tech and the guy I spoke with from Tork said. That it will only work with another turnkey car. I always thought all the sx's had push buttons? The dealership said it's a legit Kia/Hyundai ECU and they couldn't wipe the old car's vin...

    I think immobiliser is a Canadian thing. They have mandatory DRL and immobiliser. Even if US version has some kind of immobiliser in the key, it is not the same thing.

    A lesson for everyone - you buy ECU by a part number or call dealer (best two or three locations) and get part number based on your VIN.
    Drives:
    2016 KIA Forte5 SX 1.6 T-GDI, A/T ("cheap GTI" - surprises many drivers) - SOLD... Some OEM and aftermarket parts left after... see my FS thread in market section.
    2014 FIAT 500e (my first EV - awesome toy!!)
    2015 AUDI Q5 (for wife...)
    2016 FIAT 500X Trekking Plus AWD with Roof and Beats (for wife)
