Re: 147 ecu
It is just possible that there has been a major malfunction on one of the circuit boards. This could explain why no codes were logged anywhere and perhaps the culprit was the fuel management system.
Perhaps you could suggest to them that 1., have they a spare they can try this out with before you part with cash for a new one or 2., that someone gets one of these ECUs from a scrap car to see if your car then works.
It could also be a defect in the wiring somewhere that has caused a short - thus no codes - and has fried a circuit board somewhere. In which case if the fuel management system is replaced it will simply go bang again.
However, the garage may just be correct in their diagnosis.
You're the customer. It's your call.
