Think my 7K ECU may be fried.
Not seeing any for sale right now.
I have an ESL board to fit (with a 6K preloaded map) so think I'll just need something compatible/safe to get me away for the time being.
Can anyone advise on drop in replacement options?
Have you fitted the ESL daughterboard yet?I ended up with a Z4 and it worked fine.
Ahh, that’s annoying.I had the ESL board and cable fitted with the 7K already, working normally.
Experienced some erratic behaviour and couldn't connect with it any longer.
Only wanted another compatible ECU to problem solve really.
Both the Z4 and 7K ECUs worked fine on their own but the odd behaviour and inability to connect was evident when the ESL board was installed in either.
So, I have a new ESL board (under warranty) but this is not fitted yet.
The car had previous modifications but was still running the stock ECU and, therefore, map.
I was personally using ESL as a diagnostic tool while preparing the car for mapping.
Essentially interrogating sensors etc to ensure that the vehicle was in a fit state for a professional.
I found the ESL system perfectly functional but the interface isn't 'glossy' and doesn't seem structured for beginners.
You have to do a bit of homework that is beyond just reading the manual.
That's fair enough I suppose, as you shouldn't be tuning without the requisite knowledge!
