Ah! Bad luck. At least those damaged tracks are fairly obvious. ME ought to be able to patch around the breaks and will have a good idea of which if any components might have suffered. With luck it's just been a rush of current through ground rails and the rest will be okay. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

ME replied after seeing the photos. They confirmed the trace that burnt out is the main power line to the ecu. They will have to test the ecu to confirm if any components are damaged.
They did say that this failure is consistent with power and ground being connected the wrong way round. The garage did use a booster pack to try and start the car so that could be the culprit.
Ill see what the garage say on Wednesday, hopefully they are willing to accept the mistake.

I thought modern ecu's had polarity protection circuits 🤨

my ~15 year old DTA has so I'd have thought ME would have included similar:unsure:
