Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla
I had the same problem about the Engine Control Module! I was so worried about the cost and everything. I was going to bring it to a personal repair mechanic but i still had to get it towed someplace so before spending $80 to getting towed to 2 different places i looked up here:
enging locks up, engine and battery light come on, the car eventually moves but the gas pedal doesn't work, when you switch gears it knocks like it was about to fall apart.
But anyhow i brought it to toyota and paid a $100 diagnostic fee and they gave it back after saying it was the engine control module. The only thing is that it is covered for cars up till 80k miles.
I hope this helps someone else. Thanks to the rest of you!

When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.
