My son jump started our 1999 Escort the wrong way by crossing the negative and positive terminals. Now the radio, key fob, and interior lights do not work. No big deal until I went to get it inspected. It will not pass b/c the computer is not turning on 5 of the reccomended emmissions circuits to make it pass. The check engine light is not coming on, but it does come on when you turn the key to the on position. So it is working. I replaced the battery, alternator, and made sure the ground was good. The battery terminals are not loose at all. I have checked all the fuses and relays, all good.
Where do I start? Should I just replace the ECU and see if it works?
have the same problem?
