Two 1watt 100ohm resistor seem to have cause this damage, and flowing copper traces on the pcb they seem to lead to the 2 coils.
So , my coils were probably not that good.

I was not able to find a perfect fit for replacement coils ( always different shapes and pin-out) And changing the coil and the ECU was not necessary going to work. I was tired of doing mechanics on this car. I bout a 2004 Toyota echo and scraped this one.( long-term parking was also an issue, so I was In a rush)

I have some stuff for sale from this car

All the 4 lights
Brakes parts

4 tire on rims
Perfect is the enemy of better
