Alfa 147 Engine ECU memory dmaged
I'm am new to this forum and I was wondering if someone out there can help me. I am having a bit of an issue in sourcing a second hand or reconditioned engine ECU for a 2007 Alfa Romeo 147 T-Spark Lusso.
What happened the car?
The car was left idle for a number of months and the battery was left connected. We attempted to start it and the battery was dead, jumped it and it started ok. It was left again for another while, attempted to start it, it was dead, jumped it and it started. Bought new battery and put it in, started ok, again it was left idle for another while, attempted to start it and it would not start as battery was dead again and will not start since.
It's a great car and we would love to get it running again as we have it since new, however the price of a new engine ECU is just outrageous and I cannot justify paying the money being asked. I am told the old one cannot be repaired as it is memory damaged.
I would greatly appreciate if anyone out there can assist me in sourcing an unlocked second hand one or a second hand kit with the ECU, transponder/dash clock and keys, as I would lover to get it going again.
I would really appreciate your help.
