E300 TD info reqd

I origonaly posted this in Diesels section, but had no response. As it might be a little technical I thought I might get a better response here.

Since I last posted I have consulted my diesel engineer and Merc main dealer regarding my 1997 E300 TD and the problem outlined in the article above.

My diesel man liked the ECU article by Stu Ritter, as he now believes that I have a softwear glitch.

I took the article along and showed the Merc dealer and was surprised that he didn't freeze!
He made enqs and told me that the part no quoted for the ECU was not a part number they knew and was probably a US part number, not British.

I have done other enqs and was lead to believe that any part no that ended 05, was the subject of a recall. He checked recalls and there was not one for this part, neither had my car missed any recalls.

He said I could have a chassis matched exchange ECU! I really can't see how that would be any different to the one I have!. But suggested my car go on their diagnostic tester first. I may well just do that so that when it shows no fault I can say "what the hell is that then?"

Is there anyone out there who can confirm that part numbers are different for USA and GB and that 05 denotes a recall, and confirm the part number given by Stu Ritter are correct, and even where I could lay my hands on one of those ECUs?

Thanks again, John.
