    you know how when you start your car or put the key in the ON position the check engine light comes on...and when everything settles down the check engine light goes off...

    well i went to start the car this morning...and all it would do it crank but it wont start...but i also noticed that the check engine light didnt light up at all...

    i think the ecu is fucked bacause the check engine light isnt comming on...and my car wont start...can anyone confirm?thanks...

    it could be anything from spark to fuel.
    take it to a workshop if you dont know whats wrong with it.

    yeah i know...im not a retard...but if you would have read my post...the main reason i think its the ecu is because the check engine light doesnt come on when i first start the car (as it usually does come on and goes off after 3 seconds)

    Have you done anything to the electronics of your car that might cause the ECU to go out?
