No...because EWS uses multiple components...and all have the same ISN (individual serial number) burnt into them. The DME/ECU, EWS control module, transmitter/receiver (on early EWS II models), and the key. They all have to have the same ISN...if not, the starter, ignition, and fuel will be affected.
