I have a 99 Passat that cranks and won’t start. I have spark and fuel. The timing marks all line up. You thought the ecm was bad. I put a new Engine speed sensor in it but it made no difference.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The reason I ask is everything I read on line says I can just install it because it’s the same part number
