First the answer to your question is that the Stratus is a SE model 2.4L. Secondly the link beneath your reply for Auto computer exchange dot com seems to use the terms ECM PCM and ECU interchangeably are they all different names for the one computer? Or are there different computers working together?
A day after I sent my message another thing happened, the blower fan resister failed for a second time in about six months. Compared to the computer this is a relatively inexpensive fix but it makes me wonder, could these be symptoms of another problem like a coil pack going bad, or alternate shorting, or going bad and throwing out excessive voltage spikes? Is there some sort of filter on the computer that protects it from miscellaneous electric "noise"? I would hate to replace a computer just to to have the new one fail because it was a symptom of another problem. What might be the most likely culprit?
Thank you for you prompt and helpful advice, it is greatly appreciated.
