Remanufactured; Plug & Play - No Programming Required
CARDONE Remanufactured Electronic and Powertrain Control Modules are designed to meet or exceed O.E. performance. Reverse engineering provides insight into how and why the unit originally failed, allowing CARDONE's engineers to identify and correct original design weaknesses. All critical components are re-soldered or replaced and each unit is 100% computer tested to ensure reliability.
Features & Benefits:
Plug and Play module for easy installation and immediate operation in your vehicle
Tested with automated, computerized equipment or bench-tested, depending on application, to ensure functionality
Re-soldering of critical components ensures superior electrical connections. This prevents intermittent failures and leads to longer product life
On-car vehicle validation is done to test durability and performance
Remanufactured Original Equipment part
Don't Misdiagnose Your ECM!
Misdiagnosing an ECM is expensive and time consuming. Before assuming the ECM is at fault, follow these diagnostic steps:
CHECK ECM INPUTS
A weak or dead battery is the leading cause of improper ECM function. If the ECM is not receiving enough power (9-12 volts):
Use a Battery Tester to test Battery voltage output (12.6 volts, with the engine off)
Check wiring / function of Sensors, Ignition Switch and Fuses
SOLUTION: Replace Faulty Input
VISUALLY INSPECT ECM
Voltage overload and moisture / corrosion are leading causes of ECM failure. Visually inspect the ECM for:
Burnt / Melted plastic - often caused by voltage overload from a shorted Solenoid
Moisture / Corrosion - often due to a faulty Seal, Wiring Harness or extended exposure to the elements
SOLUTION: Replace ECM and fix source of failure
Locate Your OE Number
Some vehicles may have several ECM replacement options, while others may just have one. Do not assume that any option listed for your vehicle will fit! The most accurate way to order the correct replacement ECM is to verify the OE number provided in the part listing or at the bottom of this page matches the OE number printed on the original unit. If the original ECM no longer has the label, the dealership can look up the OE number using your VIN.
