2005 MG ZR 1.4

Hi all, I recently bought a 2005 MG ZR 1.4 and it won't start. I took it to the mechanic and he said it needs a new ecu kit. I seen them on eBay, but all the part no.s seem to be different, as long as I buy the right one for my car e.g. ECU kit for mg zr 1.4 16v should it still work? i.e. I don't need the exact part no.s to match as they are all different. Please help, Thanks Thomas!

In that case I would be very surprised if it was a ECU fault

What do you think it could be so? Also it needs a new fuel pump I think. When you say does it crank over, do you mean trying to start? Thanks

It's possible normal when it's an ECU to immobiliser fault it will just start and immediately cut out
