Re programing Body computer

can any body tell me if the Body Control Unit (BCU) is reprogramable to slow down the indicator flashing speed on a MK2 Punto 1.2 8V.
i've tried all other idea's such as bulbs, wattages and earth's,disconnecting the battery etc.
i'm running out of ideas and i dont want to pay 300 for a new BCU.

Re: Re programing Body computer

found that water had got into PCB does, i've cleaned all the corrosion from around all affected terminals, put it back in the car...but no change.

does anyone know if the 2 relays soldered onto the board can be replaced..

Re: Re programing Body computer

The place where the the data is kept would be in the nvram on the BSI (if its stored anywhere).
A way round (if data is not stored) would be to to change the nvram over with a used spare and use the replacement BSI.
If it is stored then it should be possible to have it reset by factor equipment.

I think I have a spare BSI unit if you want to give it a go.
Tony.
