Just grab another selespeed dash from a wreck and try it out, there are literally squillions of dead 147 selespeed out thereÖ.. although some people do like to hoard them ( you know who you are :) )

Are you saying the CAN is daisy-chained and the fault lies in the dash?

The Body ECU is one of the Coded parts and contains the Immobilizer circuit, to replace it you have to replace the following -

Body ECU
Engine ECU
Immobilizer Chip in the key

They are a "Matched Set".

Also I recommend  you get a set from a car with the same number of doors.

Is the body ecu in the dash?

My suggestion was just to try out a new dash, should fly without any coding /cheap
If the problem goes away, then heís good

If not, then you know.. what itís not.

The body computer is clipped to the back of the under dash fuse/relay panel.

I forgot to add, I have the 147 portion of eLearn, and am using it for schematics.

I think Craig is referring to the instrument cluster when he says "Dash".

I think we have concluded that as the Body ECU circuit board was water damaged that it is the most likely cause of the issues.

I would also suggest that when you replace the Body ECU you of course replace the attached fuse box, as if there is water ingress to the Body ECU, you can be sure the fuse box is contaminated as well.

My mistake, I thought the images were the instrument cluster
