Hi there just got my turbo ek9 back on the road. Recently it has been cutting out and not starting for ages. I got a ecu code up of vss which I have sorted but now I have been stuck in town for 1hr 3/4 with it not starting. It has fuel as spark plugs are wet and plugs are sparking. I eventually got it started by foot to the floor and cranking 20 times. I have done the ecu check and now ecu light is constantly on. I have looked through the ecu codes and can't see one that mentions the ecu light being constant on.
Any help appreciated.

If the EML's constantly on ie no flashing off then on when you cycle ignition, the ECU is dead mate. I had that with the first ECU we used for my b swap.

Hi guys,

It's a socketed p28 ecu. Found the cause, one of the pins in the ecu harness had some corrosion on it. We by passed it and hard wired it into the main loom.
Cheap aftermarket harness to blame
