Andy - Thanks I saw that one. But on the eBay listing it states the engine doesn't run......I think it may well be exactly the same as mine !!! If it ran - I would have been off in the van to get the Ecu today !!!!!

Apparently they don't do them anymore...

When I rang I spoke to a guy and he even asked someone else there if they do the v8 Ecu. It sounded like a bit of a discussion in the background before no was the answer

Cheers Alex - the Ecu is out and off to a guru - hopefully he will sort it.

Alan came up the other day "massive thanks" to try and get the laptop working on her - but we could get no comms. 

Ive gotta do something I'm really shit at now - WAIT........

I did do some tests on the harness yesterday - and I'm sure the immobiliser is indeed doing what it should do.

Ring Bluestreak again this morning.

it would appear Neill Pye, apologies if that's the wrong spelling, has left the company and the knowledge seems to have gone with him?? That's a little alarming to say the least.

i have popped an email to lotus software support in the hope that they may be able to assist @bibs - can you have a little word please - it may be we have a real support issue going forwards with these lovely cars

Isn't Pete fixing it, as I recommended? 

Lotus won't be interested. This has been an issue for 5+ years now and they stopped building the cars 12 years ago. There are only 1,000 V8's so you can see for them there will be no business case to explore a solution.

I hope Pete is fixing it - but no guarantee of course.

i wouldn't expect lotus to be in any way interested in an old car - but it would be nice if we could get the technology to reprogram exige ecus - and or hook up the old dos based diagnostic stuff

Surely the ECU is off something else? The 4 pot ECU is GM and fairly available if you know where to look...providing you don't need the memcal that is! 

Very very long shot but Mike Sekinger ? Might be worth a shot but he might have one lying around.

Might be better for your blood pressure to see how Pete gets on with it mate.

Alan, when you're done, maybe you could help me with finding a G-spot?  I'm at my wit's end.  I can send a non-functioning unit over if it helps.

Yep will have a bash at that too Sparky. Is it also urgent (silly question probably!) 

Anybody got a really dead V8 ECM they could lend me? I would like to map out what is in one, even though it's irrelevant to a replacement TP jobbie. Ta

 

I tempted fate...now my Esprit V8 IS in bits...(sob)

User error.

Ha ha I assumed that it was a typo and was musing over his predictive text dictionary. Perhaps he meant it and he's shipping a female over to me. Happy to help in those circumstances as well, obviously :devil:
