Hello,

the engine computer is located right on top of the transmission hump at the center of the dash.

Here is a diagram that will help you find it (below)

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers, Ken

Thank you for listing the engine size. The locations are the same, but the modules are different. The engine/transmission computer is in the center console.
