What is ECU and how to make the ECU programmer? How exactly is that work

Electronic Control Unit, An engine control unit (ECU), most commonly called the powertrain control module (PCM), is a type of electronic control unit that controls a series of actuators on an internal combustion engine to ensure the optimum running. It does this by reading values from a multitude of sensors within the engine bay, interpreting the data using multidimensional performance maps (called Look-up tables), and adjusting the engine actuators accordingly.

Automotive ECU is to convert stored procedures chip in simple, replace the programmed chip, as long as open the backplane of the ECU and unplug the original chip and then put the new chip , as some older E-ROM chip only can write just one time, every time you modify the program you must turn the program of original chip into a blank chip and then replace the original chip. If you want to have a program modified by yourself, you need a ecu programmer.

Please describe your is there a preformance chip in my 1993 chevy k1500 4x4 and if so where and how much do they cost i was told there was one and it would raise the rpm before shifting and could get me...

Yes there is a performance chip.. Its in the ECU,, its what controls the air fuel ratio, and other things.. Modifying the chips programming will increase performance,, as well as fuel consumption. There are 2 ways to modify this..

1.) purchase a pre modded ecu and switch it with yours..

2.) A mechanic can reprogram the ECU with the modified programming..

In eighter case you will need to find a mechanic who specializes in customization and modification. I'm sure there is one in your area or atleast someone who knows of one..

I strongly suggest you dont attemp the mods yourself because it can damage the ecu, engine , transmission and really mess things up if you make any mistakes..

The modification is done with a diagnostic tool which is capable of reprogramming the EProm in the ECU. The Mechanic will already have the modified firmware for the device,, which he will then burn onto the eprom..

Replaced the ecm computer on 2001 dodge durango then start it up and it runs and then cuts itself off after 15 seconds

The ECU would have to be programmed from the dealer. It normally costs somewhere around $100 to have it reprogrammed. The reason it needs reprogrammed is because the factory theft module in your car is different than the theft module in the car that the "new" ECU came from. I had this problem with my 1997 Cadillac Deville.

All you would have to do is get it to a Dodge dealership and have them reprogram the ECU. Make sure you explain that you just replaced the ECU, and you need it reprogrammed to match your SUV.

Please vote on my solution whether good or bad. Thanks! :D
