Sorry, I don't know of anyone around us that repairs them. When mine went bad, Autozone carried remanufactured ones for $100. That was 5-6 years ago though. Good luck

If you find any information in this fix, be sure to post back with an update as I've been seeing more and more ECMs failing lately and no real fix except taking your chance on eBay ones. Normally these computer's have had a very good reputation.

OK, post back if you find a place that repairs them and the cost/warranty info.

Just to help the next guy out who may have similar problems. Good luck

check the fusible links for the ecm power before you replace anything.
