Hi All Wonder if someone can help. I went out to my car the other morning to be met by the sound of one beep (like the one you get when fuel is low), and then three other beeps followed by a red flashing handbrake light on the dash. The car refuses to do anything with the ignition. Glow lamp bulb stays on too. I have plugged in a VAG COM and attached the output - main culprit seems to be inability to contact the ECU. Anyone any ideas what this might be? I have tried/checked: - Taking the ECU from under the scuttlepan to check for any obvious water ingress etc - nothing. Note: I havent disconnected the cables from the ECU as the black metal plate looks like it can only be removed if I take the protective housing off? Didn't fancy this yet.... - Tested the battery and also replaced it with a known good one - all fine - Checked the earth, all appears fine - Tested brake bulbs, brake light sensor, all fine I'm pretty stuck now and looking for some advice? This may be completely unrelated but I had to replace a small section of rubber fuel hose due to a leak caused by wear and tear, so some diesel will have been sprayed/lost under the hood. The car has since been running though (albeit over a short distance). I also noticed the boot light came on when I went to start the car so it's possible the boot has been open (light left on?) for a day or two. The battery voltage was down to about 11.3 when I first tested it when this initially happened. Like I say these may be complete red herrings but thought I'd give the full picture! I've posted similar message elsewhere and getting some useful responses (but none to pinpoint the problem just yet), so thought I would branch out to another forum. Hope that doesn't offend anyone Any suggestions welcome!
