The 'E' and 'F' are revision numbers. They will not affect the car driving/starting/etc.

You now know that the problem is not in the ECU. Must therefore be wiring or sensor related.

Could be the ECU is not getting power. I would also check the connector on the coil pack. 3 are triggers one is a 12V feed. Ignition on, test the front pin (number 4) which should be 12V.


cheers

It is an EF, it does not have a dizzy, it has a coilpack

Problem still could be ECU as it sounds like the replacement one is from another car NOT new :roll: :D

Agree, could be, but I assumed that it would have been pulled from a WORKING car.

But you know what they say about making assumptions......

It was confirmed today that my new ECU works, my car did start once today, but I am still having the same problem all other times with the car not fireing. I have checked every thing, even replaced the ECU and the car still does not work????
