About Central Locking ECU
A Duster<Model> central locking ECU (Electronic Control Unit) is a microcomputer or brain responsible for management and control of a car’s central locking and security system. All locking components including the lock mechanisms, lock barrels, lock levers, actuators, remote sensors and other lock controls are electrically connected to the ECU, allowing it to regulate and control the overall state of the system. The central locking ECU may also control electric window closure, vehicle immobiliser and alarm system.
A Duster<Model> central locking ECU is located within the dashboard or engine bay. It is generally possible to ‘read’ or interrogate the central locking ECU using a laptop computer with relevant software and cable or a dedicated reader via a connection port usually located in the dashboard. This is the best method for diagnosis of central locking faults.
Like any electronic component an ECU can fail for a number of reasons including short circuits, dry solder joints, water damage or age. Diagnosis is generally much easier with the correct reader which can be used to obtain error codes from the ECU.
- The 1310 (the Dacia Denem) model came with some very understated marketing, including the now-famous slogan 'The Very Acceptable Dacia Denem'. However, the current slogan for the latest Denem is now 'Always Acceptable'.
- In 2019, Dacia was named Manufacturer of the year in the Top Gear Awards, surprising everyone. Top Gear called Dacia the "torch-bearer for anti-fashion cars. They're cheap and they work and we love them."
- The Dacia 1410 was an attempt to break into the minivan market, but it kept not quite making it to production. After adding front headlights from a Nissan Primera, the 1410 proved too odd for motorists, and the production run only lasted for two years before it was cancelled in 2006.
- In the 1970s, there were two Dacia variants, the 1300 and 1300L. However, in 1974, the 1301 was launched, but it was reserved for officials in the Communist Party. One theory at the time claimed that there were two versions of the 1301. One for Romanians and one for export, to the point where locals would cross the border to buy a car!
- Between 1983 and 1985, Brits could buy one of three Dacia models. The Duster, the 1310 pickup, and the Denem. For a while, the Denem was the cheapest new car in the whole of the UK.
