Default ECU in an accident, Safe to plug in?

I bought a ECU for a rex that was in an accident. the airbags did activate in this accident.

So I want to plug it in to my car before I send it out to get a cobb reflash to make sure it works and wonder if there is any data held in there that could set off my own airbags or something.


Thanks!

the air bags are controlled by their own computer.

Just email a lot of wreck yards, I got varied offers from 125 to 300.

If you buy some other parts with it perhaps they will cut you a deal.


The place I got it from only had the one.
