Ecu help! Quick!! :)

I have researched my ECU problem and some guy on EBAY offers to take it and reset it for 45 pound. Now once its removed will my vehicle still run? or will i have to wait to get it back. I use my car everyday for work and have no other mode of transport that is viable. Is resetting an ECU possible? will in invalidate my insurance? and will it also need reprogramming once i get it back?? i could do with some speedy replying thank you.

I'm affraid your car will not run without the ECU . As long as it comes back *fixed* with no enhancements, then there will be no insurance issues when you re-fit it.

I am a little dubious over the whole 'resetting' issue though. Are you sure that this is what your ECU needs?

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.
