    Why do you want to replace this? You mean the PCM right?

I would Google to begin with the year and model with "replace" and also look on You Tube or one of the many Toyota forums to see if video or detailed instructions exist from someone who has already done this--recently had a bad hinge pin on door of a vehicle--got everything from remove entire door, replace entire hinge to someone with step by step instructions with photos--20 min job and 2 4 dollar parts.

You can save time and mistakes if you research enough. Key words are essential when you do this.

    PCM failure rates are about 2%, so keep that in mind. FYI

I need to replace a computer brain box for my 2001 Saturn L series Wagon. I'm thinking it is located behind the glove box on the passenger side but how do I get to it?

The ecm is buried under the passenger side windshield cowling. The bcm sits on top of the glove box. Your 4cyl engine uses a timing chain that may have suffered from lack of lubrication due to poor oiling controls. Although you're describing a symptom, ecm's rarely fail ($$$), as your description may have everything to do with the bcm and the factory security system; starting, running then stopping. Have you reviewed your owner's manual for resetting the security system?

Jumping on ecm replacement won't be as easy as you may think as there's a factory security feature that forces all the system computers to communicate with the body control module (computer) before allowing the new kid to work. There's a relearn routine that's part of replacement procedures and unless your ecm find gives you this information, you'll be in more trouble than you can imagine.

you can use a used one from a junk yard. Why does this one not work. Have you tried removing the battery cables for a few min. Sometimes this will reset most the faults. I would check further into that before buying a new or used.

Computer box problem . The car was submerged in flood, so does the computer box. One Resistor R15 was damaged. Computer box is labeled as 37820-P1E-900 on the first line. Second line is 395-352210...

I would replace the computer box- these can be very pricy! In fact I would recomend replacing the car, you will have nothing but trouble from now on. When a vehicle is submerged, water goes into all kinds of places, and really messes up the whole electrical system. The wires will start to corode from the inside out. The reason for this, is the fact that the insulation on the wire is much like a straw with wire in it. Once the wires get wet in a situation like this, they get wet on the inside also, holding that water, and eating the wire. Every flood car that I have seen, will die a slow and painfull (wallet)death.
