944 Motronic repair
944, 2.5L model '85 - '89 and 944 Turbo, 2.5L model '86-'91 have all a Motronic Fuel Injection system.
This motronic system is also called a pulsed injection system. That means the system only sprays fuel
into the intake manifold when it is required in the combustion cycle. When you use this method, it results in
more accurate control of fuel levels and delivery but also maintain ideal stoichiometric air/fuel ratio.
In general the Motronic Fuel Injection is very reliable. Problems arise when the connected sensors are not functioning
properly. But sometimes the Motronic computer is the trouble maker. Bosch is not producing
these Motronics anymore, so new ones are virtually impossible to get or you have to pay a lot of money.
Sometimes the relay of the system fails. That is the reason why most 944 drivers have a spare relay in the car.
The relay (position close to motronic beneath driver seat) is in fact a double relay: one to control the Motronic
and one to control the fuel pump. Anyhow if the user checked the relay and sensors and the car has still problems:
We can effectively repair the defective controller for you and restore it to specs !
Common symptoms of a failing Motronic 944 are:
Engine will not run at all (no start).
Bad idle running (fluctuating or > 1000 rpm).
Fuel consumption too high.
Burning smell in your car (overvoltage).

928-ecu-repair offers you a repair of the Motronic for a reasonable price.
Due to the large number of variants of the basic unit, it is often not possible to
offer an exchange unit from stock. Your faulty unit can usually be turned around by our
workshop in 3 working days.
Once you disconnect the faulty Motronic from your car, send the unit to 928-ecu-repair. When we receive
the Motronic, the first thing we do is connect the unit on a Motronic-testbench. This PC controlled
testbench acts like a 944 car and with a logic analyser we measure the signals of your faulty Motronic.
Next step is replacing of broken parts and retest again.
