Bad feedback him. Is it an EF comp or an AU 1 ecu?? Suppose an AU1 ecu wouldnt even start it.

You should get ur money back

I would do an AU Ecu conversion im sure there are wiring differences though! The sequential injection wouldnt work wired in Bank fire like earlier EEC's... or are EF's wired different.

well according to the post you made before you stated he said he had a 14 day return policy... just return it and get your cash back. instead of trying to find answers here actually go on ebay and talk to the guy... its the only way your going to get ANYWHERE

Surely only you would know if you can fix it. At this stage it does not look like you know what is wrong with it.

Good luck.

I don't know what a 4DTA suits but the correct catch code for an EF Fairmont Auto 3.23 is 4DCG.
