Ecu help

Hi everyone need some urgent advice

My 147 jtd turbo packed up about 8 months ago and it has been sat on my drive since just got round to changing the turbo and thought I would try to fire it up before hand just to make sure it still started. My old battery was dead so tried using my battery of my astra petrol, there was no warning lights in the dash or any power at all not even for the lights in the cabin does this mean the ecu has lost all the codes or even worse the ecu is screwed. I only have 1 key which is not the master and I'm not sure what to do next any advice would be appreciated cos I don't want to scrap it n live with a euro box

Sounds more like battery hasn't connected properly. Lights on dash shouldn't rely on ecu.

Are the battery posts correct as some have + and - opposite to others
