Fiat Doblo Cargo goes to local mechanic as it cut out on the road and all electrics failed. Mechanic says ECU unit is required to the tune of £800. I say, "Erm no thanks" and arrange to uplift vehicle. Before I do he delivers vehicle, keys through door and drives off. Van looked at by another mechanic as not starting - turns out 1st Mechanic has taken out ECU unit and dumped it! Now I can't tell if it needs an "engine ECU (£423 + VAT + £50 due to old ECU not being returned to Fiat) or a "body ECU (£153 + VAT)works electric windows (didn't have any)".
How do I know which ECU unit it needs?:confused:

Don't mess about, go straight to trading standards, he has no right to remove and dispose of anything from your car.
I cannot believe the amount of people that do this to customers and in a word this must STOP and it's the customer that should take it as far as he or she can.
If it happened to me I literally would blow a fuse.
Good Luck

Definitely get in touch with the mechanic I'd also leave bad reviews on any Google reviews or Facebook pages he may have about his business
