Where can I get a ECM for a 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse bench tested??

Check the crank sensor before you send the ECM in. ECM does not fail that often.

I have a problem with 2005 sprinter i turn the key and cluster says start erroe

Sorry to say, but your key has lost it's security code. If you have another key, try it, sometimes that is all it is. It may or may not work. If you continue to get the error code the immobilizer will need to be replaced or reprogramed. Good luck, i hope this helps.

If I replaced the PCM on the 2005 dodge ram truck would I have to reprogram the keys to make the truck run?

If you key has a chip in it, you will probably have to get your ECM reprogrammed with the proper VIN, since it no longer matches the original VIN on your Vehicle. I don't think the dealer would program your keys to a mismatched VIN number, so more than likely you will need your ECM reprogrammed with the proper VIN. This will need to be taken to the Dodge Dealership to be fixed.

2000 eclipse gt getting a po1400 code and car does not idle right all the time and sometimes it dies. Mechanic said it was ecm, any ideas

PO1400 is not a common code. PO140 however is. PO140 is a oxygen sensor problem, it refers to bank 1 sensor 2 having no activity. This could cause your eclipse to not hold a good idle and possibly to stall. I would have a different mechanic check the car before you spend quite a bit of cash on an ECM as they can cost upwards of 800 dollars

2000 vw beetle, turns over engine is firing will not run

My daughter had the same problem! It turns out the key had "deprogramed" itself. Sure enough, we used her spare key and the car ran like a champ. Oddly enough, the back-up key's remote did not work. VW wanted around $200 dollars to reprogram her key and about the same amount to get a new remote. We put the back-up key on the good remote and she is off to the races.

Reprogram keyless remote

Here is the same question for a 2002 Eclipse but they should be the same. I would try this technique if you think you can. It seems to be the only technique anyone seems to know. I've found it several times on the web.
