612 body computer unit/ fuse box

Do these unit need to be programmed with the keys?? I just bought one for 05 Maserati which happen to be the same exact part number as the 05 612. thanks

The way it normally works is the ECU is programmed to accept the new key/fob. Take the new key and all others you have to your Ferrari dealer. They then zero the ECU key/fob memory and then program the ECU to accept all the keys/fobs, up to 7, that you have. Only way I know to see if it works.

Im planning to get the texa diagnostic tool with the supercar program. I wonder if this tool is able to program the key?

I think your are stuck with taking in the entire car. I doubt the Texa has that capability. Otherwise thieves could buy it and....

The ECU is tied to the Motronic ECUs, too, so sounds like you need a flatbed. If the Maserati key does not work, the dealer will be happy to sell you one that does for $750 or so.
