Well, as an update, multiple battery disconnections (due to car having lots of work done) and many other things (like having to deal with the battery disconnection nightly due to a drain) the error is still with me.
so, cheapest course of action? I no longer have the drain and i no longer have electrical woese (yes i found a short too), but i do still get this error. Im guessing its been fried or corrupted froma ll the electrical work going on (battery/alternator replaced, boot wires shorting, alarm draining, etc.)
Can someone here do a flash/reset? can i do anything? Are you saying the ECU unit itself is damaged?
