Unauthorised Returns

It is customer’s responsibility to obtain authorisation and/or contact us with required information regarding returned item as outlined in our Return Procedure above. However, in the event of receiving an unauthorized return of an ECU we will do our best to notify the customer of the situation if there are enough contact details provided to do so, such as phone number or email address. If no such details are available to us we will use the original details that are recorded against ECU’s serial number, this means we will contact the original purchaser. Once contact with customer is established we will follow our Return Procedure. Where contact cannot be established the ECU/other product will be put to aside and will not be dealt with until we hear from the sender. If, during Return Procedure, it is established that the product should not have been returned to us it will be shipped back to customer only at their expense. Shipping cost will be calculated by our website.

Repairs

Should you find fault with your Emerald ECU please contact us by email straight away support@emeraldM3D.com.  If rectification of the issue cannot be achieved remotely it may be necessary to return the ECU to EmeraldM3D Ltd for testing.  For ECU's covered by warranty and whereby any fault present is deemed by EmeraldM3D Ltd to be the result of defective material or manufacturing, any subsequent repairs shall be provided free of charge.  In the event that the fault present is deemed unrepairable by EmeraldM3D Ltd, a new replacement ECU shall be provided free of charge.   Postal/courier charges for the return of ECU's to EmeraldM3D and/or for the return of repaired ECU's to the customer are not covered by warranty.

For ECU's not covered by warranty (see Warranty) a flat rat testing/diagnosis fee of £50.00 exc VAT is applicable.  Once tested and the fault diagnosed a quotation for full repair of the ECU shall be provided.  Upon receipt of payment the necessary repairs will be carried out and the ECU returned.  All repaired ECU's carry a 12 month warranty valid only for protection against re-occurrence of any fault repaired.  EmeraldM3D Ltd reserve the right to declare any ECU returned for repair, after due testing and diagnosis, unrepairable.  Unrepairable ECU's will be returned to the customer free of charge.

We strongly encourage our customers to make sure that everything else, such as sensors, wiring, fuel pump etc., is correctly installed and fully working before returning ECU to us. Testing a fully working ECU is not covered by our warranty and will incur in £50.00 exc. VAT testing/diagnosis fee plus return shipping. Please contact us first as many problems can be rectified remotely and with less expense.
