    Could be the ecu control relay? Try that.

    ok looked at the car tonight and the code p1230 is for the main relay under the bonnet,opened cover up to reveal to purple plugs,1 with a purple relay fitted and the other with a green relay fitted with 1 pin broken off.Tried a working purple relay and it worked.Engine smoked alot but think thats down to the fact the car hasnt been running right,just idling and not reving with em light on.Smoke cleared up so service tomorrow and hopefully that will have solved it
