156 ecu / engin mamagement light
Hi. I'm after a few pointers, and hope you can help.
For around a month the ecu light was on and off, with the durations of the on's increasing as time went by. Whilst this was happening I took it to a garage a few times for a code read, but it showed as 'unknown'. After a while the light stayed on, and the code read finally help, telling me that the issue is with the ECU itself.
I've tried a couple of people who refurb ecu's, but they tell me they are unable to help. Apparently they don't have the equipment or software to diagnose the fault. They did tell me though that the ecu doessn't need to be coded to the car.
Do I need to get it coded o match the car?
I've been quoted £165 for a replacement new part. It sounds good to me. What do you think?
Is a second hand unit from a breakers worth considering?
Thanks in advance for your input and ideas.
