    Hey Guys,

    Car couldn't start and changed to new batt but same problem and my regular mech traced it to faulty Engine ECU. Got the car back after replacing the ECU and reprogramming. This morning same problem ie car couldn't start at all. Gonna send it back to the workshop.
    Anyone here had this issue?

    cheers and stay safe !!

    forgot to mention, the car was leaking current and thats why the new batt was dead, overnight.

    When u changed battery, did the mechanic registered the new battery bro? It has to be registered, as if u dont, the ECU might think it is still on the old battery, hence it would not be charging properly.

    But a new batt to be depleted overnite? hmmmm...... do u hv any other 3rd party mods? dash cam? android headunit, etc?

    Absolutely. Since I've already paid for it, I prefer to get it solved with the current mech. Thanks mate.
