    Default ECU!!

    Hello,
    Basically, ive been havin a load of trouble with my car lately. Signum 2.2 direct petrol! to cut a very long story short, im in need of replacing my ECU! Was wondering, has anyone done this or know of anyone? And perhaps the best way (cheapest) of doing this??? im able to get it fitted myself and also have a posh computer to plug it into via a freind or a freind, but need to know the bast place to source one, or whether they are fixable ecu units! im trying to avoid vauxhall and there ripoff prices!
    If anyone has any handy tips it would be much appreciated!

    Cheers

    Ed

    Fitting it is a doddle, there are only 2 plugs but then your going to have to get it plugged in at the dealer.

    hey,
    Well my freind looked into getting it repaired by various companies, but, although its a workable ecu unit, Vauxhall havnt released the data. so noone can fix it! Apparently its something to do with the european union bla bla bla. basically they want everyone to have the cars fixed at main dealers!
    Problem with that is, Vauxhall dont repair ecu's. only replace! SO looking at almost £800!
    DOes anyone know where to find a second hand one...perhaps someones breaking one somewhere or something!

    I'm not to sure about this.

    i think there is a feature in the op-com for doing the ECU

    but don't hold to it

    Is a very expensive bit of software to program your car just like tech 2, there are copy's on ebay but I wouldnt let that anyware near my ECU.
