what? rephrase that a little more clearly and maybe we can help... what exactly is the "problem with ECU"?

the ECU does not "mess with the lights". so im thinking you probably have a BCM issue, not an ECU one.

First problem: Try cleaning your MAF, check for vacuum leaks, check fuel pressure, clean injectors, It could be alot of things other than a bad ECU.

Second problem: Sounds like either a bad switch, or BCM. But has nothing to do with your ECU.

Throwing any CELs? (check engine lights)
