    Default Santro ECU problem

    Hello all.
    I have a Hyundai Santro Exec 2004 model. Its only 40k KM driven. Its ECU is dead Don't know what happened to it. One fine morning the car won't start as the battery was discharged. Noticed that there was no check engine light altogether which normally shows for a couple of seconds after the ignition is turned to on position. The electrician checked all the stuff, fuses, wiring and everything pronounced that CPU has some problems. The electrician, after checking with some repair guy, is saying that the ECU has 3 malfunctioning ICs ( No burn signs were visible on ECU card ) and its going to cost me around 20k to get it repaired.
    Does anybody has any idea what a new ECU for Santro would cost and where to get it and is the amount being asked for repair justified. Looking forward to any helpful suggestions.

    Asif

    20K to get it repaired?!?!...Rubbish. At most our 'engineers' here can do is replace some burnt power sources and call it a day and charging 20K is ridiculous. Go to shershah and get a secondhand ECU. A lot cheaper than 20K

    Does car have a remote alarm? Sometimes the problem lies with the alarm system which overrides the ECU and prevents car from starting. 9 out of 10 times when you don't see a check engine light means that there is something wrong with the security system and its wires. Get it checked by another electrician or somebody who installs security systems for a living.

    If no security system is present than its the CPU gone kaput or one wire leading to its power source is fried. No check engine light means no power to turn on ECU which mean car will not start. Either way 20k is a ridiculous amount to charge for 'repairing' some power IC's

    Thank you for the information provided. The car has no security system installed and i have shown the car to 3 different electricians and they could not find anything wrong with any of the electrical systems of the car. I will visit the shershah market and see if i can get it from there

    DONT DO THIS MISTAKE AGAIN. if ur ecu is fried, this means may be your mec, didi some wiring play or some other problem#
    mostly ecu burn during service people when they throw water blindly

    but i knew 1 guy who tried to do some wiring himself & got it burnt, again he bought new ecy from dealershil but just after installing it , he gaian burnt it, so then he took car to dealer , then they fix it


    please contact hyundai direct, why it get burnt, they will giv u the correct reason
