Actually a new ECU is pretty cheap. Can get one on ebay for around $80-150. Then the shop you are using just needs to re-program it to match you car VIN, mileage, etc.. which they can do with their honda HDS software.Thank you so much for that and for checking up on me. They called tonight and said they are having trouble getting the computer to communicate so who knows...doesn’t sound cheap so far. I may have to purchase a bicycle lol.
Anyone in here had any luck with a portable jumper such as the Halo brand? I just want to take every precaution possible to not have this happen again. Maybe my uncle’s F-150 had too much power for my little Z? Or if it wasn’t done properly this could be avoided altogether if I invested in a portable battery jumper...any thoughts/opinions are appreciated as always
In the UK I bought :_

Through Amazon. Not sure if you can get them over there.
Works fine. twice now I have had to use it, after sitting parked up with radio on.
I think a 9 volt pp9 we call them, tiny little thing size of a big thumb would also have worked!!!??? The ECU just need a tiny amount of current to bring the EMA to life???
@Anish @SpdbumpHere’s what the dealership paperwork said:
“Found stored codes 61-81, P1298, U0155, U0110, U1205//SRS E1-11, D4-11, 32-11, 31,11, ABS 65-1, 86-1, 61-1 CAN 23-05. Reinstalled fuses. Cleared DTC’s. Multiple codes returned. Performed complete ground reset several times. All systems have returned to normal operation. Relearned TPMS system. Test drove four times. Vehicle is operating properly at this time.”
Everything is still holding strong, except TPMS light came back on but the tire shop told me one of the front sensors was bad. This light was on for probably a year or so before any of this happened so I’m not concerned with it. Just watching the pressure in my tires. If anyone wants to make sense out of the dealership’s message feel free to translate. I think the jolt of the pothole impact and my car being jumped threw a bunch of codes perhaps causing IMA system to not work properly this running down my 12v battery and causing my car not to start. Chalking it up to a series of very unfortunate events.
@Anish @SpdbumpThey had trouble getting the computer to communicate with their diagnostic tools at first...I’m not sure what that was all about or maybe just a ploy for additional labor charges. They said they did change out some fuses that were brown on the edges also.
