Hi Lagdti,

Just been out with the jumper cable again, earthing the block directly to the battery, and while the car starts the RPM just slowly creeps up, and I have to switch off the ignition. Had hoped I might be able to get it going well enough to be able to drive it to the garage, but not going to happen. Spoke to a mechanic over the phone who says that the bloke must be earthed and that if the ECU was not working it simply wouldn't start. So don't know whats going on with it now.
