doesn't sound good
I presume that the battery wasn't disconnected before the welding?
Any fuel pipes or melted wires where the welding was done?
Others on here will know better than me, I think new ECU will need keys but as long as you dont use central locking/alarm you might get away without locks. There are people on here who know how to code keys to ECUs.
Good luck, and post how you get on.
I have been assured snd am pretty confident that battery neg terminal WAS disconnected. But having done some digging it turns out that it is still possible to cause ecu damage when using a MiG welder even when battery disconnected.
Will post more in next few days....
