I have a Corsa 1.4 that starts and stops and starts after a break. Sometimes not at all. Cranks. After replacing crankshaft sensor, relays on the advice of the RAC who brought me home twice and having it checked by a mechanic, we have come to the conclusion that there's a problem with the ECU. The fuel pump etc are all good and when it goes it's great. We did get a code that said something about the identification not recognised or not matched (sorry my memory is poop and I don't have a fault reader), other faults that came up were fuel pump relay 0230 (showing active when ignition on on obd) and 1616 and 1482 fan 2 (relay replaced) and although these are working fine the codes remain. so I assume someone has replaced the ECU and not paired it and it is giving false readings or the ECU is mashed. Another clue is that the key doesn't work remotely and although a Vauxhall key it has been well mashed where people have prised it open. Also the radio is missing.
1. So if it's the ECU, do people think an opcom would solve this and/or a scrap ECU kit. 2. Or would just an ECU do the job.
3. Could I disable the immobiliser with opcom.
I say that as at 59 and after two years of driving lessons I finally passed two weeks ago and have obviously been sod a real problem. I have very little funds. I am learning a lot about cars though.
