In Topic: Engine Wont Start

i had a\someone come round with testing equipment, turns out the ecu is dead, he said he is getting no coms from the ecu and the fuel pump is constantly running, after checking he found the ecu was soaking from water leaking into the car and pooling on the ecu's plug, which inevitably killed it :-(

the light next to the clock does absolutly nothing, its completely dead, all the fuses both in the car and engine bay have been checked and are all fine. its as if the immobilizer has just died. id thought id check the leads on the ecu as from what i have found its both ecu and immobiliser in one unit. but if they are bolted down then is there any point?, i have located the ecu in the right hand side of the door above the kick plate, also theres this wierd looking red button thing there, ive tried turning the car over with the button pushed down and pulled up, can anyone explain what it is? it doesnt seem to do anything . the ecu is firmly jammed right up the dash and the only way i can see of getting to it is removing the dash, hence why its easier to scrap it, i aint wasting my time , btw its a mk4
