View Full Version : big problem, need help....

my car wont start, i thought it was because i broke the pins on my encryptor for my GIAC chip, but that wasnt it because i put in a stock socketed chip and it still wouldnt start...

it does the same thing when i try to start the car without the ecu as it does when i start it with it all plugged in...

turns over as if its not get gas to crank... im guessing thats what it is, but likely an ECU issue... anyone have any ideas?

Have you used the vag to see if there are any codes?

03-31-2006, 10:02 AM
on my way to scan for codes...

any more ideas until then?

did you adapt the ECU? I foget the procedure....

Man, I sure hope that you can get the VAG to comunicate with the ECU. If not, you're in trouble

yea, me too, although, i think im going to need a new ecu :-\

mike mentioned if the check engine light didnt come on with the key on but not started it was an ECU issue

well, i turned the key on, no cel... 1-2 seconds later it started flickering, and then it stayed on...

no vag com :-\ friend with a code reader cant find the reader...

picked up an ecu to get me around till i can have mine fixed...

same thing was happening to me when i got chipped, it was the ecu

What can you do to prevent this

04-01-2006, 10:11 AM
well, you can start by not doing what i did and ****ing up your own ecu...

i had been chipped well over a year, and i went messing with shit and got reminded why you dont mess with small electronics that are expensive...

I just got mine chipped, and mine wont start either. My car just keeps turning over. I dont know whaty to do. Any Suggestions??

does your CEL come on when you turn the key to on, but not start?

if not, bad news.. take it back to the place you got it chipped, somethings not kosher
