[QUOTE=tuckNroll;3315541]I have high doubts the ECU is bad.
i agree, it is definately the last thing i would suspect. sometimes you just need to have some faith in the dealer. I send ALOT of wierd car problems to the dealer for diagnosis and repair from my body shop, usually electrical and module related problems and they seem to fix the problem every time without replacing things they don't need to. I imagine Knowlege, experience and skilled technicians varies from location to location, so i'm sure some places use the shot gun method to solving problems but i dont know why these places would throw ecu's pcm's or bcm's at problems. I just read in another post tonight about a dealer trying to sell a guy a pcm because his car wont start until the 4th or 5th try. I would be real disappointed in these dealers doing shit like that and charging people serious money ($1000+) for modules if it doesnt fix the problems they are chasing.
Has this happened to anyone here?
Charged for a service performed, at a dealer,that didnt fix the problem?
I would pitch a fkn fit. there is no way they would get paid. I'd probably even call the cops if they didn't give my car back. Especially if the bill was $1000+, and in the same condition I dropped it off in.
I saw an episode of wreck chasers where a guy refused to pay the guys to get his car back, he called the cops and he got his car out for no money. LOL
