    Default What a Week

    And its only Tuesday! Put my Signum in VX dealers to have a diagnostic on ABS (as per my other thread) and now they cant start it, been working on it since yesterday afternoon, they are waiting for the Tech guys at VX to come back to them on several codes but so far they cant get the ECU to talk to the car - all double dutch to me. God knows the bills gonna be, from a 40 quid test to this!!!

    Anyone experienced anything like this before?

    Sounds like a problem with the canbus to me... either a module dragging it down or the ECU is fubar

    canbus is the language the car uses to talk from the ecu to all the other modules. If the ECU cant 'talk' to anything else then something is sorely amiss.

    But your car was running when you left the dealer no? If the answer is yes means that they F**cked something and they should take care of the problem IMO

    Thanks for your comments. It appears the service manager has been telling a few porkies and has subsequently been sacked. Apparently the engine wasnt cranking over because the garage/technician didnt plug the abs ecu back in !! Bought the car home on Thursday whilst waiting for the part to arrive, got in it and there was pieces of the dash ,technicians time sheet, stero face, all left on the floor. They got it started without the abs ecu connected - hmmmm, didnt plug it back in so after 2 miles, I lost the speedo. rev counter, temp and fuel gauge, and the car started to hunt and miss - plugged it back in on a layby down the A10 in the dark and all ok - thanks Motorsales of Harlow! Finally picked car up yesterday, with new abs control unit fitted and all running fine and a decent discount, free vallet and tracking done.

    You gotta watch some of the places - this was a VX main dealer!!!
