Hey everyone, I'm having some ECM problems with my 2006 Rav4 Base V6 4wd. It's got all three lights on (Check Engine, VSC, 4wd) and when I pull the code it says bad ECM, sorry I can't remember the exact code right now.
Anyway, I had seen somewhere that it could actually be something other than the ECM, even though that's the only thing mentioned when the code is pulled, but I asked the dealer about it and they said it was the computer.
Soooo, I found a used ECM on eBay part # 89661-42E90 that said it was for 2006-2010 v6 4wd and installed that. Well couple miles and all the lights come right back on, same as when I just disconnect/reconnect the battery on the old ECM. The old ECM does have a different part # though, it's 89661-42D80.
Should I ditch the one I just got and get one with the same part number and try that, or should I be looking elsewhere for the problem?
Thanks in advance
