Eclipse from one of the wrecking yards for your time.

The repaired ECU for mom’s Ford Focus Mk1 didn’t change anything, guess it’s a deeper flaw than the usual ignition transistors.

Found a part-number matching ECU at a wrecking yard, but no key, so no immobilizer chip i can move over = it needs reprogramming, which only a Ford Dealership can do because safety and what not. Going tomorrow to set up a time, hear if they want the number-matching ECU along with the car, or how they’re gonna tackle it.

Wouldn’t have had this issue with a carb and distributor... 

Hopefully that fixes it so the Focus can stop hogging space and making me annoyed in the garage ASAP.

(Bonus side note, quoted a brand-new ECU for lolz, 1769$ american)
