147 body computer
I am trying to get my Mums Alfa back on the road. It has given her many fairly trouble free years of motoring with regular maintenance by myself however the current problem has me stuck. It is a 147 t/spark 1.6 Turismo 3 door on a 51 plate.
The familiar light issue started a while ago with fog lights/indicators having a mind of their own and staying on even when the ignition is off. I researched the issue and examined the body computer. There were some water marks on the circuit board and a bit of corrosion on one of the multi plug connectors. Then there was a burning smell from the unit, complete light failure and then a complete failure to start. The "motor control system failure" light has been on for over a year (since the car went through deep floodwater and flooded the engine bay although it has been in regular use since then.
Having read up on the forum I am fairly sure I need an ecu, body computer and key internals. I can not find any anywhere. Are they particularly hard to source? I was hoping to avoid a brand new unit as the car value probably doesn't justify it.
Any help or pointers appreciated.
