Anyone had their ECU from 1989 Carrera Sport repaired?


Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

What problem is the car showing? There are plenty of other things as well as the ECU such as crank sensors can cause issues. My car would cut out randomly and I eventually traced it to a dry solder joint on the ECU which was an easy fix.

Hi Rich.

 

thanks for the reply. Problem started a few months back. Everything goes on ok but no spark is getting to engine. 
 

solution was to reset battery and usually worked. I guess it got worse and reset was required more often. 
 

now reset doesn’t work. Checked all fuses and only thing I can think of is the ecu. Replaced the relay too.

 

im not a much or a mechanic but think it’s sits with ecu.

I sent my ecu away last year and had it overhauled. I’ll dig out who it went to. Very good service.

Edit:  It was ATP Electronics 👍🏼 They’ll test it first for a fee.

I had no start issues years ago, changed sensor and all the other easy stuff.  Turned out be the ECU, some solder joints had cracked which were repaired.
