My 97 Avalon died while traveling down the road at 50 mph with no warning. We had it towed to the Toyota dealership and the problem was diagnosed as a bad ECU. I had the dealership removed the ECU and I sent it to a repair center in Miami. Upon repair I took the ECU back to the dealership for for reinstall. The car still would not run. The dealership says the ECU was not repaired. I sent the ECU back to Miami and they said all their techs could not find a problem with the unit. I then ordered a used ECU from ebay and the car still will not start. The dealership says bad ECU from ebay also.
I'm stomped at this point I think its highly unlikely both ECUs are bad. Then dealership says I had to tow my car out of there or start paying storage fees. I have the car at home now but I need help, has anyone experienced any problem like this before and where do I start looking to figure this thing out.
Thanks in advance for your help.
have the same problem?
