1st check that your main engine earth strap is in good condition and tightly fastened and then check all the main power fuses in the under bonnet fusebox for cracks/ burnt terminals

if this is all OK then its possible that you may have blown the main ECU during the welding process

That is possible but I did think by disconnecting the battery it would be all right. I did take the earth lead off the gearbox and will check it again to make sure it is on properly thanks i will get back to you
