Read the thread posted above this... You are not supposed to post threads here in this section.....

But I am sure that this will be moved son anyways...



As for your question, not sure where the ECU is at on your car since its location is different in every car out there. I would wait for a real Sorento owner to respond. My mom owns one, and I am not sure were it is at after looking at her engine bay (wasn't really looking for the ECU though).

I will take a look at her car when she gets home later and I will see if I can locate the ECU and I will respond later if I have any tips for you. If I don't respond, just assume I didn't find it, or haven't had time to look yet.

Good luck to ya!

The last thing to worry about is the ECU if it wont turn..Best to remove front plastic covers and wash out the timing belt area in case of thick sludge or debris...then remove plugs and with coils disconnected power the starter direct to crank it over ..if water comes out plugs then get some parafin or diesel in and leave overnight..then crank again ..change the sump oil and filter ..ifits white water in it.....you may need to change rear axle oil /transmission fluid...location of ECU is in the on line manual....good luck
