ECU question

My 03 Peugeot partner van is having an issue with its cooling fans as they won’t come on, short journey into work is fine as it don’t get hot enough if it does I put the heater on 1 and blow it out the window to Keep the engine cool, it still blows cold air but will over heat much quicker, now I’ve changed everything in the coolant system except for thermostat and ecu, now if I changed ecu for another DW8 ecu does it matter it came from a different car which uses the same engine eg Peugeot 206, and put that ecu into my van as it’s the same engine or does it have be same vehicle regardless of engine ?
