I guessing if a new sensor didn't fix the problem they looked to the other end of the wire, the ECU. Swapping that would require key matching to be run.

Look on the bright side, you'll have a new ECU running the latest software when you get it back :)

You buy your car from the dealer so the buck should stop with them. I think legally your contract is with the dealer, not the manufacturer. Best try and get cosy with a dealer which breeds a bit of confidence. I've a Ford dealer 7 miles away but use one 20 miles away. They are the same company but of course different people and that's what's making the difference for me.

What a performance for what was already diagnosed by the App as an exhaust sensor!
I had exactly the same fault and message on the app, when I booked it with the dealer I informed them what the app said and left it for them to read the fault. Luckily I have access to forscan and had already checked the fault logged and it was for the exhaust sensor and even gave additional info.
Within an hour of the garage having the car, they had phoned to say they needed to order an exhaust sensor and it would be fitted the next day.

If I was you, I would be looking for another dealership!
