hi,

I'm very sure mine has coz when I used ecutek, I swapped my non-ecutek wrx ecu with someone else who already had an ecutek, the ecutek tuner programmed my immobilizer chip into the swapped ecu but since I only had 1 immobilizer chip (the other one was stolen by a workshop) my console had the red key light blinking till today. (but the car still starts becoz the ecu needs at least 1 immobilizer chip).

btw, mine is a euro my03 wrx..

how do i programmed it in then? any advice?
