    Default Please help? Is my ECU dead?

    Vectra C LX RJ52 YEC

    My car had it's battery run down and failed to start so I had the father in law come out and jump start the car. Got the car started but lost my indicators, central locking, blowers aren't working and the headlights won't switch off. I have checked the fuses and they are intact and I've been told I could be looking at a new ECU and they are expensive.
    The real ***** is that I've only just finished paying for it. If anyone can help I would really appreciate it.

    That did the trick. I replaced the battery with a new one (which I should have done 6 mths ago) and all systems are go, thanks for the advice.
