Hi all , have a problem as my husband has fitted another engine to a Fiat Punto 8v multipoint.
Now the car won't start and the yellow code? light stays on.
Got the spare key and tried it but it still won't start.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

He didn't change the ECU but he still has it on old engine.
Does he need to change it.
Thanks for your reply.

yes the ecu goes with the car not the engine, its coded to your body computer and key so you need to use the one that was on your original engine

Hi Thanks for that info apparantly he has got it running now,not sure what he did but I will see him soon and hope its good news.
I did search through the other threads but there was some info that I wasn't too sure about and it does get confusing at times.
Cheers for your help(y)
