    ECM Question

    Finally after months of screwing around I got into the dealership to finally get to the root cause of why my speedometer/odometer stopped working after my trans rebuild (after replacing speed sensores, harnesses, etc.)

    Tech tells me that the ECM shorted out in relation to the speed output, all of the signal going in is fine, gauge cluster is fine, the ecm just isn't spitting out the info to the cluster. Fine to drive- but Caddy wants $700 for the ecm and 2 hrs to program.

    Is there a better/smarter(cheaper) way to go about replacing the ecm?

    Oh, and my radiator is leaking- again. Im just out of warranty. They want $450 and 3 hours for that P.O.S.... my service contact didn't exactly have a good answer as to why I would put in a known faulty part again on my nickel this time.

    How long ago was the current radiator replaced under warranty?

    All warranty repairs have a1 year,1 time replacement guarantee even if you are out of warranty at time of second failure.

    Re: ECM Question

    I think that was for the PCMs not ECMs..

    Ebay is your friend.

    Best thing is to get a tuner to copy your tune, then do a full dump into your new ECM, it will take 20mins tops...

    Beta,
    If you would send me your contact info (name, address, phone number, email address) along with VIN, mileage and the name of the dealership that you are working with. I would like to look into this and see if there is anything I can do for you.

    Re: ECM Question

    I totally get the point, Ive been reading here for months, just haven't had a lot to contribute other than my experience with enhanced customs and the driveshaft not fitting without modification, and the BMR wheelhop kit bar not fitting aftermarket exhausts.

    And to think I bought this car because it would be cheaper to repair than a BMW (still true, but damn) id expect to get more than 40k mi out of a T-56, 30k out of a radiator, 30k out of motor mounts, etc. I could have had a lot of sweet parts by now (or at least not a ton of stuff on my credit card!)

    Re: ECM Question

    also, just to be clear that I understand what you've posted ...

    Dimmitt is your dealer?

    and currently your odometer is stuck?
