It's in a plastic box IIRC to the left of the car - if you open the bonnet and look in, standing in front of the car, there is a large black sandwich-box sized plastic enclosure with a clip-on lid. Never having opened mine, I'm not sure if there is just one ECU in there, or if the ABS computer is inside too. Anyone else able to confirm this?

Edit - just thinking about the above post - why isn't the car starting? Does the starter work, but the engine won't fire? Is the battery voltage too low? Has the immobiliser not been de-activated properly? Have you tried using both sets of keys for the car and seeing if it will start with one but not the other?
