Problem with my 2005 320d
Started the car one morning, everything was fine, no odd sounds or nothing. Set off to move, probably got a meter away and the car decided to cut off. Didn't start, just a cranked for a while but nothing. No problems before this, no warnings.
Had it taken to a mechanic, told me that my ECU was flooded as the drainage was blocked and therefore have a knackered ECU which cannot be fixed by refurbishing companies.
Right heres my concern. If I get a new ECU, programmed and installed will my car start as normal? Could the cut off concern be put down to the ECU only?
Such a headache.
