Help needed with ECU issue - starts only when throttle sensor disconnected
B16a2vtiguy - I know its been a good while since you were active on this thread, I have exactly the same issues you had with the immobiliser failure, ecu light flashing like crazy, wont start unless throttle body sensor is disconnected. Any chance you would be willing to expand a bit on your repair of the ecu. My missus has just bought a 2003 1.6 147 and the day after purchase this has happened, obviously she is gutted but I am determined to see the car fixed and hopefully without forking out a small fortune on a new ecu.
Can you advise if it was the body ecu that you removed and opened and repaired, if so any chance you could possibly share a diagram showing the location of the throttle capacitor you repaired,
I have been reading through tons of material and came across your post. would really appreciate your help if possible.
