Hi all, my ECU is bad and I just realized I bought one that has a code under the part # 39180-23800 that is different from mine. See in the 1st photo (one I bought) the code ending in 4520B? See mine ending in 4520C in the 2nd photo? Does anyone know for sure if this makes a difference (like a version # from timing car was made, etc and that it's IMPORTANT)? Please help! I'm in the Dominican Republic and a nightmare to get good mechanical help where I am. Also if you have experience w/ ECUs...I have a 2010 2.0L Kia Soul Sport. Does this need to be programmed? I did call the Kia dealer in my hometown in FL and they said that only the part # mattered (not this B/C code difference but he didn't really understand the question) and said, yes I need it reprogrammed, but I've read online that I don't. Also if it needs to be reprogrammed, my mechanic said he can/needs to reprogram it but I know his scanner doesn't even have my specific model in it lol! His scanner only finds 2010 Kia Soul and doesn't have the 2.0L option. Do you think he can reprogram it or do I HAVE to take it to the dealer with the car? If you don't know and can point me to anywhere I can get the right answers, I'd greatly appreciate it...the local Kia mechanics aren't an option here lol! THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP!!!!
