    If the ecu is later than mid 1995, I can disable the EWS in the software, and that'll do the trick.

    Hi End, Car is a september 96 if that helps. What parts do you require from the car and any ideas on cost, as don't want to splash out too much on it.

    Regards,

    Wol

    That's fine for the reflashing.
    EWS removal is £35, and all I need is the ECU. For doing it via post, +£5 to cover return recorded postage, or I can come to you for another +£20 and do it on the car. It will knock out any aircon systems, but it will get it running. I might even be able to resync the EWS as it is and leave the A/C fine (if fitted)

    If the Alarm is dug in deep like an Alabama tick, then it might need another wire fed in from the ignition or EWS box to the engine loom, but that's only to bypass any other breaks or relays that the alarm might have hidden away.

    Generally, with a laptop and a few metres of wire, I'll be able to get anything running!
