Transit connect ECU not responding

Recommended Posts

Hi guys new here! 

 

Apologies my first post is asking for help 

 

I have a 2004 connect . Parked up before Christmas no problem - got in it to go to work today and when I turn ignition on I only got —————  instead of mileage and it wouldn’t even crank over. glow plug and cog light stay on and immobiliser light flashes around every 3 seconds continuously  . I disconnected the battery and re connected and then the mileage comes back but then as soon as I turn the ignition on my problem comes back 

 

i have tried a sensor check to see if Ecu is awake but there is nothing so it would seem my Ecu is asleep . I checked the common relay 8 but that isn’t my issue unfortunately . 

 

If someone else could shed some light I’d be eternally greatful

Hi mrtn unfortunately my immobiliser light isn't giving me any codes it just flashes every 3 seconds as if it would when the vehicle is locked

Do you have another key? The immobilizer coil in the barrel is known to cause issues.

Unfortunately not - I have no power at all to the ecu ? Would that be caused my an immobiliser problem - tonight I'm going to check if there is power at the relay

That’s above my pay grade.

The fact that It sat for 10 days and  now has a problem says bad electrical connection to the ECU, check the grounds and fuses.
