Now sorted. Found a negative (earth) lead from the ECU to the engine block that had parted (more or less 100%) from its crimped on connector, which is bolted to the engine block below where the main earth cable is attached to the engine - both in the "dipstick" corner of the K7M engine.

Before that I've twice checked the main earth cable, including cleaning and reattaching it, without noticing the other one just below it! Very well hidden by both the dipstick tube and the main earth connector.
