BMW ABS ECU Goosed!
« on: 08 January 2018, 23:36:44 »

I finally got round to sending the BMW's ABS ECU off to BBA Reman for repair the other day, but they called today to tell me that.....

(a) They'd tested it and it's faulty.  :y

(b) The fault is unfixable!  :(

(c) They can sell me a new one for £395 + VAT!  :o

What a frigging PITA!  ::)

Oh, that's a pain. >:(

Still, sounds like our diagnosis was correct. :y

Got a VW, Audi, Skoda or Seat? I have full Diagnostic software VCDS to read and program your car. Need something enabling? Perhaps full diagnostic? Drop me a PM. Can diagnose in Camberley or Osterley Area.

Yes and thanks again for your help Kevin!  :y

So the dilemma now is whether to bite the bullet and shell out for BBA'S 'new' one with a guarantee or get a 2nd hand one and take a chance!  ::)

Do I feel lucky?  ???  Not especially at the moment....  :(

From experience, buy new or don't bother ;)

You could easily spend £400 trying to get a second hand one that a) works, and b) getting the second or third purchase programmed to the car :-\

Failing that, I know a Lithuanian chap...

Given the number of bits the car is now in, I don't suppose he did ::)

He does pay cash though ;)

Send me your reg and Ibwill see what I can find out for you.

As a BMW Parts Manager, I might be able to help.

But at least I do not own one. I get to give my one back whenever I want and take a new one free all the time.
