Default Opel Astra ECM Failed!

Hello,

My car service dealer has informed me that my astra ECM has failed! He says get it repaired or replaced!

Does anyone know a good fellow to repair my ECM? I stay in Navi Mumbai, so someone near & someone pro at his job!

Any Astra owners here? who have repaired their ECM or replaced it?

Are you sure Astra's are scrapped at Kurla Railway station? When did you see it last time?

Any experience anyone?

I suggest go to Kurla and get as much as spares that you can for the Astra ie vital spares cause not many would be available in the market.

Get hold of a second hand unit instead of repairing, unless its absolutely impossible to find one.
