You have to give us more information.
What were the first symptoms, was it a flat battery or did you run out of fuel, is the car petrol or diesel, manual or auto.
Please reply.

The car came in due to an airbag light being on.
Petrol and it is automatic.
We only reprogrammed the SRS ECU, now it doesn't want to start.
Launcher shows " steering column locked" BUT the steering wheel can turn.
We checked all the fuses nothing wrong there. We changed the battery and the fob's batteries. Still no success.
Car locks/unlocks with fob.

As you have the equipment to reprogram the SRS ECU, does that not show you what the issues are?

You need to buy yourself a ford compatible OBD reader (ELM 327), download Forscan and see what error codes are on your car. You cannot just go and replace modules and then not clear the error codes.

Vgate vLinker FS OBD2 USB Adapter for FORScan HS/MS-CAN Auto Switch : Buy Online at Best Price in KSA - Souq is now Amazon.sa: Automotive

or cheaper one here, but I would go for the Vgate Vlinker as it doesn't have the changeover switch.

OHP Tools | Shop FORScan OBD2 Adapter and Diagnostic Scan Tools — OHP Store
Automotive tire Product Tire Camera lens Camera accessory


And free software here Download FORScan

I have moved this to the mk2 technical section as this isn't an introduction.

@problemcar - You have another post which also discusses that you have changed a module which appears to be connected so I have brought that here.

So we are now a “go to” site for garages…interesting 🤷‍♂️
I should be on commission for Vgate and OHP lol.

Remember that if some Ford garages logged on here they may expand their knowledge lol.

@bernie b you have posted in MK 2 technical,,I see that you have a MK3 one of the mods will be able to put it in the correct section for you…also could you put your kuga details in your signature it then saves you repeating your self when you need help in the future 👍
