Hi guys, I have a 92 Galant vr4. has a SAFC thats been hooked up since january, no problems there, over the past four months I have been gettin a CEL of code 44 (coil packs) since i have replaced it with about three known working ones, but the code still pops up. now it has gone away (no idea how), now i got 5 codes, I dont remember exactly the number but I do know what they are for. 1)Cam Angle Sensor. 2) Coolant temp (I havent had a sensor on my thermostat housing since I bought the car and it hasnt appeared til now) 3) TDC, 4) Barometric, and the 5)Air Temp sensor, IDK whats going on, I had the maf changed with my friends GOOD maf from his 92 talon tsi awd, and it still pops the codes, I also redid the wires to the safc today, still no luck, Can it be my ECU itself???? please let me know, I am going to the track sunday. Thanks
-Shane

If that were the case, just take the ecu cover off and check for blown capacitors. If nothing looks irregular, swap the ecu for another one.

Shane not to dig on ya but the ECU check/swap was suggested months ago when you posted on the code 44.
Get with Terry Posten or SteveP immediately, they should be able to salvage it ( assuming this is your problem ).
