More than ever before, your car relies on your ECM. It is responsible for monitoring a number of different kinds of information, and it can make adjustments as you move forward. From your ignition system to controlling your emissions to handling your fuel supply, it’s easily one of the most important components of your car, but how do you know if yours is about to fail? Take a look at a few symptoms.
- The Check Engine light is on. While there are many different reasons a check engine light can pop on, one of them is that the ECM may need to be replaced.
- The engine relay is stuck. Often you’ll notice this problem if the engine can’t manage to actually turn over even if the ignition is one. It may not be able to start as you turn the key.
- The engine stalls. If your engine isn’t behaving like it once did, it’s possible you’re dealing with an ECM problem. A faulty computer can cause your car to stall or misfire on a regular basis, and you may not even be able to see a pattern of occurrence.
- You experience reduced fuel efficiency. If your car isn’t performing quite like you expect it to in terms of gas mileage, it’s possible that you’re having problems with your ECM. It controls the fuel settings on your engine, so it could have a negative impact on the performance.
The last thing you want is a car that won’t run when you need it the most. bring your vehicle in for an ECM check now so we can take a closer look at the problem and help you decide if you need an ECM upgrade.
