Dislexia will kick his ass.......



Let me clean this up,

While driving to pick his old lady up, he was completly granny driving 5th gear cruise of 40..... car looses power, all idiot lights turn up but check engine (PO wired the fuel relay by the ecu to a switch; CEL comes on once the switch to the fuel relay is switch to on.)
Anyways even-so now with the switch on the CEL does not come up. What could be the problem here.

Take note will have to check the ecu which couldn't get to as it was 10:20pm with no tools.


Please help thanks.

^^^ Good looking out for your brother.

May be as simple as blown fuse...

Did you guys check all the fuses yet?

Was real late last night, and I'm sorer then a cripple that was hit with a train...

Will check it all over when I take lunch or once I get off... car is being pulled home so I will have tools to play with... first I'm looking at all fuses and pulling ECU

Twas the ECU.... noticeable from the brown goo on the middle of the board.


Will have to get another one or get work done on the 2 ecu*s he has.

The CEL not turning on when you turn the ignition on was a big hint that the ECU had died.
It likely that the electrolyte eat through the trace out to the MPI relay to turn the power on. There's usually other damage that was causing poor performance before but it's the ones that make the car undrivable that get your attention.

There's a reason why the very first post in this forum says:

Yeah I was just thinking about this today actually. Even when you've been on here a while, the obvious can slip your mind.

I just picked up a 1990 stock JDM VR4 and I've had an intermittent CEL coming up on my dash as I coast to a stop with the clutch in. I thought it might be idle related and was going to check the ISC and even the closed idle switch and TPS. I probably really should check out the ECU on a 20 year old car, right?



Getting old sucks ... but it sure beats the alternative !!!
