Re: Testing the ECU to find out if its stuffed.
Have you performed a diagnostic test on the ECU? A workshop manual or someone here should be able to tell you where to connect LED and which pins to short (on diagnostic connector) to enable a self test. There is a code which indicates the ECU is stuffed, it may generate this code for you?
If you replace the ECU with a smartlock enabled ECU it should be OK.
