Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Any time you change the computer it will need to be programmed for the car its being installed into . The computer out of a Protege will not be the same as the one for a 626.
