The first bunch were right. These items are next to useless second-hand, and you'd need to get a 'paired set' to stand a chance of getting them to work.

So at the very least, you'll need the ECU and the UCH . Then the UCH might need reprogramming to handle differences in the accessory specifications of the two cars. On top of that, you'll also need the keys, and you'll have to swap the blades from your existing keys into the remotes from the donor car.

It might be possible, but it's not going to be easy.

Was the ECU physically damaged? I'd be very surprised if it can't be reset after an airbag deployment (though I'm ready to be corrected.)
