Replacing the ECU on a 1999 VW Passat Sedan 1.8 Turbo

if u have an electronic key than security codes from ur key must be programmed into the ecu to match-- most ecu change overs on cars usually require a trip to the dealer so they can install their programming most auto shops dont have the funds to, or customer base to spend thousands [every auto maker has their own software and update and change every year]-- every year on reprogramming software for ecu-- they may do only 1 or 2 a year

I need to change my distributor on my 1994 golf.

Pull the distributor and look for the series number, or take it down to the parts house and have them match the distributor to a new oem replacement. Takes the guess work out of the engine build code.

Engine Control Unit(ECU)

The ECU is a Direct Link to the Onboard Computer. You may need to get the Computer Replaced or at Least have a Mechanic run a Diagnostics Check on it. The reason it is acting this way is Because you are just Clearing the Trouble Codes by removing the ECU for a while. It is still sending a Fatal Error after Driven for a While.
