LOL IN THIS THREAD - WHO THE HELL ADVISES SOMEONE TO SWAP THE DME/CLUSTER FROM ANOTHER CAR!!
The DME is paired to the IMMO and specific to the engine type.

WHO THE HELL ADVISES SOMEONE TO TRACE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT BACK TO THE DME?
The KOMBI communicates with the DME over a communications bus shared with other functions.


Clio, take it to someone who is specializes in this. It is possible the DME has been re-flashed/tuned to disable the CEL... unlikely, but possible.


Anyway point is, many of these guys will have you rip apart your car until you damage something.

Misfires can be caused by a number of things including intake gasket leaks... take it to a good mechanic or be prepared to do a lot of reading from qualified sources before following any advice or opening your wallet.
