Your ECU definately needs to be replaced.

Sounds to me like once the relay goes bad it takes that portion of the ECU with it, the circuit must alwaysw go to ground once the relay fails. Luckliy for everyone it only seems to effect only that specific small portion of the ECU, otherwise cars would have been dying all over the place.

I don't know a lot about electronics, but I always thaought that diode relays were "better" then resistor relays. Can someone point me to an explanation of the difference.
