    I am not sure... All I know is that it isn't working... It is taking power in but not sending anything out.

    There is no spark, No fuel.

    back up fuse
    ECU fuse

    Did you actually check to see if it was getting power? How did you check it and where?

    Just get another ecu if you know it's getting power and you checked all fuses and wiring, they are a dime a dozen.

    $100 for an auto P06? You need to find a new place to shop.

    I did check all the fuses there all OK. I know it's getting power because I checked it right at the ECU. I replaced the ECU and the car started right up... So. My question remains is there any way to fix it... so I can sell it ie rechip it etc... ??

    It is hard to fix when you have no idea what is wrong with it. Try a known-good ECU and go from there.

    just get another one, it isn't worth fixing. It shouldn't be more than 50 bucks for a used one.

    Great advice.. buy another

    But, you really don't know what's wrong do you?

    So now you got 2 ecu's, and no running car....

    Got to love the members here and their stellar advice.


    Go with what NFN said. BORROW a known good ECU and make sure it's the ECU that's bad and not the igniter circuit or main relay.


    Being serious people, if you can't help, or you don't know HOW to help, shut the hell up.

    since no one noticed that you've already swapped ecus and got a running car my advice would be to EgAY it as is but state the known issue and take what you get out of it or toss it,

    But Y did your ecu die should be the more pressing issue.
    good luck
