Hi my old ECM was bad and the dealer wanted 600 dollars for a new one. I decided not to pay this and instead found one on my own at a salvage yard. My question is when I put the new ECM in my car do I have to take it to the dealer to reset it or something so it will work with my car, or can I just plug it in and go. I called the dealership and they said they had to reset it to work with my car, but they are the liars that ruined it in the first place and sold me a bad car so I am looking for a neutral party to answer. Thanks in advance. How would I go about flash reprogramming myself. I am also open to going to a mechanic if they can do it. I called the dealership and they wanted almost 300 to reflash it so that really isn't an option. But as I said how can I do it or can a non GM mechanic do it?
have the same problem?
