How do i change the Electronic Computer Module (ECM) in a 1996 pontiac 2.2 automatic sunfire


I would get a second opinion , there not the brightest people . Take it to a ASE certified repair shop or dealer . Does your vehicle start an run ? If the brain box was bad it probably would not .
Powertrain Control Module/EEPROM Replacement/Programming

Powertrain Control Module (PCM)
Notice: In order to prevent internal damage to the PCM, the ignition must be OFF when disconnecting or reconnecting the PCM connector.
Service of the PCM should normally consist of either replacement of the PCM, EEPROM re-programming or a KS module change.
If the diagnostic procedures call for the PCM to be replaced, the PCM should be checked first to see if it is the correct part. If it is, remove the KS module from the faulty PCM and install it in the new service PCM. The service PCM will not contain a KS module. DTC P0601 indicates the EEPROM programming has malfunctioned. When DTC P0601 is obtained, re-program the EEPROM. If a DTC P0325 is set, check the KS module for proper installation. If it is installed correctly and DTC P0325 is still displayed, replace the KS module.
The ignition should be OFF for at least 10 seconds before disconnecting power to the PCM so the IAC valve has time to move to the engine OFF position.

Replaced the brain box,but still wont start


Yes unforunatly, unless you know of a good repair shop that has the proper equipment. The thing is you vehicle may run with just a junk yard "brain box" (powertrain control module or PCM) but it wouldn't have the correct info in it (VIN gor that vehicle or mileage etc...). WWhat's cuasing the vehicle not to run is the anti theft. Your vehicles keys have a transpoder or chip in it that goes to a "brain box" (Sentry key immobilizer module or SKIM) that in turn sends a signal to the PCM telling it that nobody has just broke into the ignition switch and is just turning it with a screwdriver or something. There is really no way to bypass it either. Wish I had better news but I hope this helped

Replaced brain box,but still wont start


the number on the pcm has to match and you will need to swap the eprom out from the old one to the new one. open the unit and you will see a rectangular eprom simply lift it out and make sure it gose back in the same direction usually a small white dot in one corner to indicate pin 1

I need change the computer in my dodge caravan 1999 v6 3.8


this is a fairly simple job. The location of the unit varies within the same year make and model.
Take your vin number and ask the local deal about recalls and -- where the location of you vehicle computer is - sometimes these are called brain boxes by dealers - - once located you will have little problem in removing and replacing the unit.

INTERMITTENT !! No power to instruments or starter


I had this problem with 99 Durango and went to AutoBeef.com and learned that this problem notorious for 98 & 99 Durango. After reading all the entries I was encouraged to replace the PCM "Brain". The site also listed the name of an online company that sells brains for <300.00. It was so easy to fix -- I had my brother and son help me to remove 3 screws and replace the brain. The guys from the online company that sells computer brains told me how to do it (Florida Based company -- can't remember the name but you can google)

The PCM, ECU (engine control module, powertrain control module, brain box, etc.) is located underneath the airfilter assembly. Remove the accordian hose attaching the intake to the air box then remove 2-3 bolts securing the airbox in and you will see it sitting underneath there.
