Have you checked the EZ stuff like the ECM relay? Corrosion or a bad relay is far more likely than a bad ECM.

All the easy stuff . I replaced both relays but with napa and advance relays . Cant find the Boush . All the pins on the relay are alike .. The only question I have is the main relay is making a buzzing soun when you turn the switch to off ... Thanks for helping ..My ride is at the Dealship and all im getting from them is bad ecm .. It will start with staring fluid .. Also after read the forum so today Im hearing about the neg. side of the coil black and whit wire .. I did take a plug out and I have spark ..

Don, Your best bet is to use Bosch relays. I've used all types and it always came down Bosch was the only one that would work.

The cost of the BOSCH relay is $12.08 at rockauto.com, roversnorth is asking 45.00 for one.

Don call www.roverguy.com and tell him to send you an ecu out of a 95 and down disco or RRC. If it is the ecu, that will fix it.

Try the bosch relays before you do anything else... like replace an expensive ECU. Ron's idea of getting a cheap one is good too, but I would try the replacing relays first.

Your biggest problem IMHO is that you're at the rover dealership- sorry I have not personally had good service experiences with rover dealers.

Thanks Guys ,

I spoke with Will @ roverparts and ordered a ecm today and also Rovers north is sending out the relays .. I feel alot better now . The only problem is when I have to pay the dealership for doing nothing .. Vasoline in hand this time .. This forum is great I would have never had my baby towed if I would have know of d-90.com .
I will post my results in a few days .. Thanks Don

Good for you. Bad for the dealership telling you it was an ECU. Keep the ECU from Will as a spare. I would order two more relays and keep them as spares too along with a cap, rotor, coil wire and ignition module. With those things, you can get pretty much any 14CUX truck running if it is an ignition fault.

Just watch out for some of my overly wordy answers. I tend to get a bit into the minutia of things sometimes.

With your spare cheap ECM, I would go to the hardware store, get a couple of aluminum spacers and longer bolts. Mount the two ECM on top of each other. If you have an ecm failure on the trail, all you have to do is switch over the connector from the failed one to the spare. I am actually running a 95 Disco ECM in my D-90, which eliminates the speed limiter at 85 mph.
