Perhaps something in the ingnition switch broke. Correct me if I'm wrong.

The ecu should have a 12V signal at all times(for memory) and a seperate wire for when the ignition switch is in the 'on' postion. Also should get a signal when the key is in the 'start' postion.

Which of these signals are you not getting?

If only someone could help me with my Progressive Controller...

Stab in the dark answer...

Check your fuel and ignition relay.

It is a yellow colour here in Oz and is located on your drivers side guard (compared to mine). I am not sure if they are located in the same spot.

Try turning your key to on (reds), but not cranking the engine, listen around to see if a relay 'clicks' on, if everything is silent, your relay is fried (or one of its circuits). I thought the ignintion relay is also fused internally

did you ever check the ground? did you check the hot wire on the ecu while it was connected?

OK Blue first off chill. You need to find a hot source direct off the ecu or the same as the one going to the ecu and verify you are getting juice. From there branch out onto the perripherals. maybe the battery terminal is loose or a ground got fucked up and corroded. Does the starter motor work? Could your AF dealie have blow the ecu protection fuse since it draws on the same circiut. Did you check the funny square fusses by the windsheild wiper. motor. try this stuff and then report back to us.
