You can try to replace with a similar unit, but typically Ford ECUs have to be "reflashed" by the dealer. Ford has numerous calibration codes and various other vehicle specific information that can only be managed with Ford certified (dealer) programing devices. I hope this helps

I have a 2004 Ford Taurus SEL DOHC that gives me gas cap, parking break and airbag lights when starting and also hasitates when it starts. Any ideas it is occassional for this to happen.

warning lights that come on when you turn the key to ON or START are doing that just to prove out that the bulbs are good, not that you have a problem.

For the hes, clean the MAF sensor wires inside the MAF sensor with spray carb cleaner. MAF is in big hose to throttle body.
