2007 Fiat Ducato 3.0l ECU problem
In need of some help from a Fiat savvy person. My 2007 Frankia A class won't start. The engine cranks and there is no battery issue. After trying to start, the Vehicle Protection System Failure warning light comes on (its an amber light with a vehicle outline with a padlock) and remains illuminated. I called a diagnostics expert to come and check for any error codes. He was unable to establish communication with the Engine Control Module. To quote "its as if the module has been removed". His advice was to send the unit off for a full diagnosis/reconditioning.
Trouble is neither he nor I were able to locate the unit other than that he said it is normally on the passenger side of the engine bay. Can someone advise me how to locate the unit and what if anything I need to remove to gain access? Because it is an A Class engine access is very restricted.
