Default ECC... I am gonna pull my hair out.

Upon hooking my ECC back up this morning, i turned on my key to find 3 dashes on the screen of the ECC. I let out a "Oh ****!" What would cause this, and remember, it wasn't like this before I took the dash out. Any pointers?

I am assuming that the three dashes are a result of begin disconected for awhile? Is any part of the system working? Not 100% sure for your year, but you may find that the ECC will clear itself of the dashes after not finding any faults in the system.

Fixed. There were 2 or 3 stereo wires touching and was apparently shorting it out. All fixed now. :P

Stereo wires were touching the ECC?

Anyways, glad you found the trouble.
