Hi Eric, (RE: AU-3 Falcon Forte Wagon - ECU Problem - CON'T)
Sorry for the delay - The Vehicle is a FEB-2002 Build / April-2002 Delivery. Last 8 Digits of the VIN NO are :A2T50047
YES the ECU was scanned on an Engine Analsyer - but DO NOT have a copy of the FAULT CODES.
I was told that the ECU was unservicable and would need replacing.
Many Thanks - Regards Graeme.
