    1993 2.0l model... my father-in-law's car.

    Car wouldn't start so decided to read the ECU codes for a clue.

    When he ran the OBD diagnostics, he got a 1-1-1 on port 6 but when he tried
    on port 2 he got nothing -- no flashes at all. The red LED lights up when
    the button is pressed but there are no subsequent flashes.

    Anyone came across this before.... is this symptomatic of a faulty ECU?

    But surely if the ECU returns flashes for the port 6 (ignition) diagnostic,
    it must be powered up?

    This happened to my brother in his 1990 740 Turbo - the car quit on the
    highway with no warning. The ignition returned 1-1-1, and there was no
    response from the fuel. The ECU was dead. Of course if the ECU wasn't
    getting power, you'd have a similar situation.
