Hi, I drive a 1997 KIA Sephia LS 1.8L and I would like to know where the ECM is located. I'm assuming it's under the main panel behind the stereo and such..?? I've recently been having electrical problems due to the whole "half-monty" design and how the ECM and alternator both play a role in regulating proper system voltage. see this article for more info:

An auto electric specialist and my mechanic narrowed it down to something going wrong in the ECM and not the alternator or battery. (battery light & fuel light go on and off depending on how much you rev the car and eventually the battery dies after a few days because it is not being properly charged by alternator/ECM system.)

I picked up a used ECM and would like to take a crack at installing it myself, but I have no idea where it is. anyone?

Thanks for anyone's help!

Hello
I have recently had my own 97 sephia taken apart inside, so i know that the ECM is located behind the centerconsole (radio ect ) on the floor. if you move the carpet you can see it.
good luck. Peter. Denmark
