QUESTION: Okay, I just found out by the Chrysler dealership that my 2005 Chrysler Crossfire SRT
had a bad coil that some how shorted out the main engine computer. The part number is made by Mercedes Benz A1121536579 and they called it the PCM or power train control module. Now my car will not start at all and they say its going to cost $2400.00 to fix it. Do you offer a cheaper option? And how does this process work?

ANSWER: Yes, we have a large inventory of Dodge and Chrysler computers. The PCM, ECM and ECU are
all basically the same thing, just a different way of saying "Engine Computer". The TCM is the transmission computer. The engine computer (ECU) is the Brain of the vehicle. Here at ECU Warehouse we offer 2 separate
options for replacing the Crossfire PCM part number A1121536579 . The first option is we can provide an
unprogrammed ECU that will require additional programming at your local dealership or repair
shop. The second option is we can provide a fully programmed ECU that is ready to install
and there will be no dealer trips required. This option will take more time because you
will be required to send us your damaged ECU via the mail or Fedex so that we can match
the immobilizer setiings, mileage, VIN number and ignition key to the new ECU. This is what most
customers prefer it just takes a little more time. Typically 3-5 business days. Once we
do the flash programming the new Engine computer will be very easy to install. Here is a pic of the ecu.1121536579

Vehicle: Dodge Sprinter VAN 2500 Diesel

Question: When I push the gas pedal the response is too slow. When I press and hold it close to
the bottom it starts to give the engine power. Engine light stays on and I read OBD2 codes that P0121
and P0160. I replaced the throttle pedal position sensor and oxygen sensor and Glow plugs. Am I at the
right place? Now the Sprinter Van will not start at all and I get a code for internal ecu malfunction.
The part number is A6471532879. Do you have one in stock. Is this a Mercedes Engine or a Dodge?

Answer: Yes, we have the Sprinter Diesel ECU in stock. The most common part number to fail is
A6471532879. We also have the tools to program it to keep you away from the Sprinter dealership.
Sprinter and Mercedes dealers are very expensive.

Vehicle: Mercedes ML350 Computer

Question: Dear ECU Warehouse. My Ml350 will only start if it is not hot, When an ice pack placed
on the ECM, it starts up in about 3 min,or less. car starts perfect as long as the engine computer is
cool. Is it the ECM or a sensor, I do need some help. Where is the ecm located and how do I remove it?
Any help would be appreciated.

Answer: Its hard to say. Can you bring the ML350 to our shop for diagnostics. We have to hook up our
autologic scanner to determine what the problem is. If the ecu gets hot then more than likely you have a
bad engine control unit.

Question: My Radiator fan will run at full speed when my 2007 R350 Mercedes Benz truck is turned on, the
sensor checked ok, no coolant issues. Check engine light comes on at different times. Could it be the
engine ECU? Why is my radiator fan running so loud and at full speed. It sounds like my truck is going
to blow up. I found this Youtube video about the fan problem with C240 Mercedes but does it also apply
to the R350? Is there any way too see if the ECU has water damage? We had a minor flood in Seattle. Do you have a pic of a water damage ECU.

Answer: Yes, the fan problem is very common with Mercedes Benz. Watch our video on youtube. Here is a picture of what water a damage ECU ECM looks like.

Question: Hi I Need help. I Have fully charged the battery. But still no cranking. The cooling fan
turns on at full speed. The fan is very loud and sounds like its going to blow up. Scan tool doesn't
show any temperature or DTC fault codes. Could it be ECU problem ?

Eventually the fan will wear out and quit working.

Vehicle: Dodge Sprinter 3500 PCM Part number A6471532879 ecm ecu

Question: Is there an original configuration for Sprinter diesel 2500 CAN-Bus or does it vary
within the 2004 2005 and 2006 Sprinter Van? If not, do you have pictures of the original Sprinter ECU
part number A6471532879 and part number 6471532779?

Answer: We do a lot of repairs for Dodge Sprinter PCM ECM computers. The biggest problem with the
Sprinter ECU A6471532879 is the glow plug failure. Also you may get a no start no crank.

Vehicle: Mercedes S550 ECM

Question: 2012 Mercedes S550 ecu A2731535679 has a 6 second spinning delay until the vehicle
starts. If the magnet is removed it will crank right away. There were a few codes the engine was removed and the left side of the engine was repaired. The vehicle was put back together. And the coil pack was
shorted out so we had a misfire on 2 cylinders. After many cranks the code will reappear and the engine
light comes on the item that was repaired pulls back up if the codes are cleared you will get about 40
cranks and the error will return. We believe there might be an issue with the S550 ECU . Do you repair
ECU? #A2731535679 A2731535079 Thank you for your time.

Answer: Have you already replaced the crank shaft sensor? If so then I would say you may have a faulty
S550 ECU. If the part number is A2731535079 or A2731535679 then we can replace and program the control
unit and offer a one year warranty. The most common problem with the S550 ECU is that when it gets too
hot the ecu will fail and as a result it will stop grounding the relay for the fuel pump. A lot of shops
will replace the fuel pump first but that is just a waste of money.

Vehicle: Mercedes S550 Ecm Problem

Question: Hello, i live in dubai. my car is a 2007 s550 V8 engine usa specs,it has some strange
problem the engine cylinder misfires sometimes and it runs perfect sometimes, i also get fuel smell from outside and check engine light is on,on checking codes it tells tank pressure sensor,but i replaced it and fuel pump also but still same,sometimes check light goes away and S550 car is fine Then suddenly it starts missing on 2 cylinders again then check light comes back.it is like while driving 5 mins its v good and 5 mins jerking sometimes more sometimes less,1 garage told me it can be the ecu problem.once i checked the codes while car was missing power nd it showed multiple misfiring codes then sudddenly the fault codes went away. Can you test my engine computer ECU to see if its bad or to see if it needs to be repaired.

Answer: We do offer worldwide shipping and we also ship to Dubai. So that is not a problem at all. As for whether or not your S550 ECu is bad or not. We can offer a free bench test but you will be required to send us your damaged ECU by the mail. This may be very expensive from Dubai. As long as you can ship it to us then we can do a free bench test. This will be the best way to properly diagnose and test the ecu. This way we can determine whether or not to replace the faulty ECM or to repair it. Obviously a repair would be cheaper than purchasing a new S550 ECU computer.
