looking for anyones knowledge.
fortnight ago my car died, lit up like a christmas tree steering went heavy all lights on, so a friend who is good with cars said probably alternator away. it gets put into the garage who replaced alternator and said battery wasnt taking a charge so put new battery in.
car still not running they told me, they sent it to some idiot miles away as he is some sort of ecu specialist and thats whats wrong with it. week went by so i called and he said new ecu £600 quid i said no thanks, and picked car back up. surely there must be easier way.
now my engine management light is on, the car is beyond sluggish and when i dropped youngest at nursery battery light came on which i know means its not taking a charge. however is this definatley a knackered ecu which is causing battery not to charge, bearing in mind i've new alternator and battery?
boy who was supposedly a specialist said he wasnt getting right (numbers???) from ecu he was supposed to and had to activate the car manually to get it to take a charge using some sort of lamp???? please help, im loosing the head and dont know what to do??
