How did you not know it was missing the ECU? I believe your ECU is mated which means it will cost you $$$. Nothing more expensive than a cheap MB.

You best options are:

1) Sell your car
2) part it out
3) throw it away

Lesson of the day...You should never buy things from a criminal.

You were better off taking his girl instead. I think you still can. Just don't marry her. Girls that date criminals are damaged goods much like your car, they are missing their ECU.

Thanks khomer2 So if I found an ecu that I believe goes in this car as in the exact numbers it wouldn’t work? First time working on a Benz
Yes, just make sure the keys, ignition switch are the original and in working condition.
