I think my garage is making up faults with my car help!!
Posted 05 November 2008 - 08:21 PM
My ford fiesta went into to garage because it would start. They have returned it saying that becuase I had wired a cigarette lighter socket into the power points of my cd changer port which I wasn't using (It socket didn't work anyway) that this damaged my ECU and they reset and returned my car. When I got the car back I managed to move two meters and it died again so back it went and now they are going to try a new ECU. The problem I have is that knowing a bit about electronics I cannot see how a power surge from the socket above which has never had anything plugged into it for 12 months hence being an open circuit could cause damage to my ECU which I can't imagine even having a connection to it. Also my CD player works fine so where they got this diagnosis from I have no idea. (supposedly the ecu is wrecked and thats why the car doesn't start)
Could anyone confirm either that this is a possibility or is it that the garage is talking a load of C**P
