i recently had to replace my KIA Sorento 2006 engine. However, upon attempting to start it, it seems the ECU has failed too. I searched for a second hand unit and foud one, but he part number is...
If the ECUs have different part numbers, they are NOT the same...The thing will most likely might hook up to your electrical connector and mount the same, but they are different computers for different vehicles that most likely are equipped with different features. i.e. different engines, different engine controls, different emissions controls, one may have cruise control and the other not or they may be for the same engine with a different transmission, etc..
I am curious however as to how this all came about. The ECU failed from attempting to start the new engine??? What was wrong with your engine that it needed to be replaced and how did the ECU manage to fail because of an engine replacement? Was the other engine running when it was determined that it needed replacing? ECUs don't fail very often...I'd like to know what the problem is.
