The engine computer or ECM is located under the dash near the center by the drivers side. Here is a diagram (Below) so you can see where it is.

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

Cheers, Ken

Hi there, My toyota camry had an accident, and air bags are broken as well as driver side seat belt. We bought air bags and computer through online, (ebay) but cannot locate the computer in the car. Looked under seat, in the middle, everywhere, but could not locate one. Can you please let me know where the computer is located? If you could send a picture with it, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

The airbag sensor assembly is mounted on the floor inside the lower center finish panel. The airbag sensor assembly consists of an airbag sensor, safing sensor, diagnosis circuit a ignition control and drive circuit, etc. It receives signals from the airbag sensor and judges whether the SRS must be activated or not.

These are instructions from the service manual

INSTALLATION

NOTICE:

* Never use SRS parts from another vehicle. When replacing parts, replace them with new parts.
* Never reuse the airbag sensor assembly involved in a collision when the airbag has deployed.
* Never repair a sensor in order to reuse it.

1. INSTALL AIRBAG SENSOR ASSEMBLY

1. Using a torx wrench, install the airbag sensor assembly with 3 screws. Torx wrench: T40 (Part No.09042-00020 or locally manufactured tool)

Torque: 20 N.m (205 kgf.cm, 15 ft.lbf)

2. Connect the airbag sensor connectors.

NOTICE:

* Installation of the connector is done after the sensor assembly has been installed.
* Make sure the sensor assembly is installed with the specified torque.
* If the sensor assembly has been dropped, or there are cracks, dents or other defects in the case, bracket or connector, replace the sensor assembly with a new one.
* When installing the senor assembly, take care that the SRS wiring does not interfere with other parts and is not pinched between other parts.
* After installing, shake the sensor assembly to check that there is no looseness.

2. INSTALL REMOVED PARTS

Hi ybojorquez,

You can find it under the radio behind the centre console mounted on the centre arch of the chassis.
