We replaced the ABS/ESP ECU because it was corroded, and it sorted the problem for about 3 weeks or so. But last night, the problem returned!!
I locked the car with the remote. When I wanted to unlock it, I pushed the open button on the remote, and then the alarm went off. The remote wouldnt work to stop the alarm or unlock the car. The alarm stopped on its own after about a minute and the car was just dead. I couldnt get in (the key doesnt work for the doors because of an engine swap a few years ago).
This morning the car worked fine as if nothing had happened. It opened, started, no problem. The time on the display was about 5 hours behind what it should be and the aircon was on, but other than that, no issues.
Please help me out... This is making me very negative and Im quickly losing the love for my car!!
