Question about 2000 Pontiac Montana

1 Answer

Engine Computer (ECM) Replacement

2000 Pontiac Montana, 3.1L, AT, dual A/C.

Need to change out faulty ECM.
I have a replacement unit w/ identical numbers (both the SERVICE and HARDWARE nos. are identical matches).
Is this a do-it-yourself 'plug-n-play', or will it require divine intervention by the great Goodwrench god (eg the GM dealer)?

As long as HW, Firmware, and memory capacity are identical - it should be a plug and play. Otherwise you may have to swap out a few chips. Any dip switch settings or jumpers on it - check for that.

You will need to replace the unit that works the door. Its inside the passenger side cover in the back. But for now just unplug the unit and it will stop making the noise.

The speedometer is not working but the other guages are for my pontiac montana 2000

Hello Durham.
Couple of possible problems here.

Does the odometer work? If it does your speedometer is defective and will need replacement.

Or if your check engine light is on your speed sensor or wiring will likely be the issue. This will also affect the odometer.
