penno87 Hey guys,

Does the same question apply if I had a Zetec Hatchback? My brother and I are being handed one down in a few weeks time and he's talking about ECU tuning and I'm going to be honest, it's not my field at all but I'd just like to get a brief overview of time, price and results. If anyone has time, could they take a look at the website of the company my brother proposes to use? They're called tuned2race and they do ECU tuning, amongst other performance related stuff. I can't tell if it's legit with my amateur eyes. Many thanks!

1turbofocus The ECU housing it self no it doesnt , the ECU grounds through I think it was 13 grounds

What are you working on that your using a 2012 ECU

mikebontoft yes because the computer controls most of the system using froundside switching, so it must have a common ground.

iminhell Yes it has to have a ground.

I don't believe it's grounded through the case though.

If you're having start issues and have removed the ECU from it's home, odds are something you removed/moved during that process is causing the no start.

does the 2012 focus ecu need to have ground

does the 2012 focus ecu need to be bolted to the frame or have a ground source for the car to start?
