Ecu burnt out ,,take it somewhere else and tell the slack jawed yocal to get educated ,most likely a bad distributer cap and rotor or a bad fuel pump but not a ecu.

I did a diagnostics test on our Opal Mariva and it came out misfire and fan relay.


Why do you think the issue is the ECU? Misfire is more likely to be ignition module (if random) or bad plug or wire, or possibly bad fuel injector. Use a timing light or spark reader to check spark. Fan relay is plug and play, so just replace it.

Check the spark plugs, the spark plug wires and the coil packs. If they are good then the misfire could be caused by the Mercedes ecu computer. If you are not sure go to http://www.mercedesecm.com for more information about ecu misfire problems.

No spark on 1994 jeep grand cherokee /wont start


If the check engine light does NOT light up on the dash when you turn on the ignition, then your ECU is in need of repair. The engine will only start after the check engine light comes on and the ecu is what controls that. It's likely going bad, causing the delayed start problem typical of early 90's jeeps. Repair or replacement services for your jeep ECU are available on ebay.

Ok so here it goes,I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT v6... about 3 weeks ago my boyfriend ran seafoam through my car. The car was working fine, a couple days after the seafoam treatment (done correctly),...


Hi,
You have spent a fortune just to make it start, guessing all the problems, you forgot to tow it to the nearest garage or dealer that could scan your computer for the possible cause of the problem.
The ECU will tell if one or any parts in the ignition that probably malfunctioned. As you have said it got no spark to the ignition, the pick up relay module in the ignition system is already broken/malfunctioning, that might be the cause of the problem.

I would recommend to bring your car to the nearest dealer and have them scan your computer than spending some more on just guessing problems.

Hope that helps you out!
