ECU Requires made virgin, help Pls
I Recently had a new clutch fitted by a non alfa garage, they did a bit of a boo boo and my much loved alfa 147 wouldnt start once. After they had it for two weeks i finally got it back, they said the ECU was faulty and they had to replace it.
But now the ecu is displaying lots of faults and keeps cutting out. (asr fault, eng immobiliser fault, etc. i took it into a alfa dealship today they tested it and told me that they had possibly fitted the wrong type of ecu, one of a 2.0. was told i require a new ecu at a cost of £800
The mechanic told me i may be able to get a used ecu from a breakers yard and get it made to virgin, then install it and it should be ok.
I've sourced a replacement ecu, but i'm unable to find anyone that can make the ecu virgin, called a few companys but none of them can do alfa ecu's.... does anyone know of a company that does or another possible sollution to my problem... Thanks
