The MPi also has an SRS ECU, same goes. I cant comment on the explosive modules in the Pre Tensioners or the AirBag, but i wouldn't like to leave them in the car as they are triggered by an electronic signal, that the welder may manage to set off!!!
Failure to do the above can result in the ECU being damaged with the high transient currents generated when welding. It is usualy scrap as so much of the electronics have been fried its normaly beyond repair.
Also while on this subject, it is equaly important to make sure that the first thing you do before refitting the ECU is RECONNECT THE ECU GROUND WIRE, ensuring all mating faces are bright and clean. Failure to do this will again fry your ECU.
You have been warned
Dont forget that the same thing will happen to your juke box so disconnect and remove that also
