    Ecu

    hey,
    after having some problems with my astra, i put it in an auto sparks after a few days he called me today and gave me the bad news, my ECU is broken some how, when i asked how that happend he just said "its just 1 of them things". how do you brake an ECU and will another 1 from a 1.6 16v sxi just plug in or is it abit more complicated? im considering scrapping the car and buying a golf as ive had nothin but troble with it.

    If your looking for a 2nd hand ecu you'll also need the transponder keys and pick up along with ideally the immobiliser code should you need to program anything in later on
