Good morning, I have a sprinter van, the engine management

Customer Question

Good morning, I have a sprinter van, the engine management light came on. Acceleration was limited. Diagnosed as the ecu unit. The price of a new unit from Mercedes is prohibitive. The unit was sent to a renovator, BBA Reman, they said that the unit was too corroded inside and could not do anything. I have the unit back, A 027 545 50 32 the sticker number is XXXXX know absolutely nothing of electronics. There must be a way of getting the van back onto the road? The van is an old one, but perfect. It is a 1999 312D long wheelbase. HELP!!

I'd suggest contacting some of the specialist breakers to see if they can supply a unit to match yours

alternatively try this ECU repair place as I've known them to work wonders

Contacted ECU docs. Sending unit off tomorrow, will see what happens!
