Can an ECM be rebuilt or do I have to replace it??
Hi all... I have a 2005 Sportage that has 92,000 miles on it. The AC is blowing hot air and I took it to the dealership and they ran a test on it and said I need to have the ECM replaced. ECM warranty was only good for 8 years or 80,000 miles ( thats just my luck) the price for a new one with labor is around $1,300. Called Auto Zone and a few other car part places and I can buy one through them..but they can't tell me the price ( Temp out of stock). So I called a mechanic in town and he said it could be rebuilt for around $500.00. I have had a few people tell me that this cannot be done, that I have to buy a new one. Any ideas?? Just trying to figure out whether to tough it out until I come up with $1,300 or try the rebuild. Thanks!!
