    I am by no means good at car stuff, though i thought id have a crack at replacing the throttle body and ecu chip with mace engineering products on my WK statesman (L67). After i did the throttle body, I removed the engine fuse, replaced the ecu chip and then left the fuse off for a half hour. Then when i went to start the car it would turn over but not start and the engine fan would come on immediately and stay on. Any ideas? Thanks

    Sounds like VATS. Try disconnecting the battery and remove and refit the chip, with the battery disconnected.

    Thanks guys. Went to undo what i had done and spun the chip around for shits and giggles. Theres no real show of which direction to install it so seems it was in backwards. Either that, or it just reset one more time and worked.
