Justina Fischer <JAVFischer@gmx.de>: Typically, using predicted values in a nonlinear second stage does not result in a consistent estimator, but including residuals together with endog variables can. Some kind of control function approach is typically feasible--I would want to see some simulation evidence on small-sample performance before I trusted any conclusions about consistency though...
