2001 Hyundai Accent 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 148000 miles
My friend has a 2001 Accent. It won't start. I took it the shop and the conclusion is that the ECM needs to be replaced. I would like to get an ECM off EBAY for $100 but I am getting conflicting stories. Some say the ECM will have to be re-programmed and some say it's plug and play. If it has to be re-programmed I understand it is about $100 but am not sure if the car has to be towed there or if they can program the ECM without the car. My friend has no money and I have the $80 diagnostic charge into it already. I would like to get the car running and sell it for him so he can have some extra money and I am willing to get the ECM but if it has to be programmed the money is getting too much especially if it doesn't fix the problem.
have the same problem?
