SOURCE: Engine Control Unit(ECU)

The ECU is a Direct Link to the Onboard Computer. You may need to get the Computer Replaced or at Least have a Mechanic run a Diagnostics Check on it. The reason it is acting this way is Because you are just Clearing the Trouble Codes by removing the ECU for a while. It is still sending a Fatal Error after Driven for a While.

its a very common fault with the GDi engine, normally first shows a fault after 60k miles. Fault will also make the engine feel slightly juddery on occasions whilst cruising... either/both Accelerator body or Cam sensor are the usual culprit. Both can be rather expensive.

It could be something simple, or it could be items such as a bad wheel speed sensor, a pinched wire, a loose connection, a defective EBCM, etc.

Also check fof some fault codes is stored there (scanner reader tool).

2006 VW Jetta code U0100


This problem is with ecu / ecm= engine control computer. These are a common and horrible problem on vw's, particularly on tdi's. The signs in a tdi are when car dash lights come on, but no glow plug light,trans gear lights flash, but car still tries to crank. And hopefully ecu has enough power to out out code u0100= no communication with ecu. Unfortunately the ecu will need to be replacd. The ecu is located under the hood, near and under the wipers. Used ecu with same codes run $50-200. New $1000. If get used one make sure has a return policy. codes must match production quarterly year.

Where is the ecu located? 2000 Volvo S40


An engine control unit (ECU), also known as power-train control module (PCM), or engine control module (ECM) is a type of electronic control unit that determines the amount of fuel, ignition timing and other parameters an internal combustion engine needs to keep running. It does this by reading values from multidimensional performance maps (so called LUTs), using input values (e.g. engine speed) calculated from signals coming from sensor devices monitoring the engine.

2000 hyundai elantra car cranks but wont turn over just started fine 3 days ago


Did you scan for any trouble codes? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' (Service Engine Soon) light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on. You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE the problem and perhaps fix the problem.
