My Honda may be in need for one due to a engineering flaw in the feedback circuit which allowed a sensor to burn out a trace and or components on the ECU board. Looking for anyone who can recommend a reliable, quick, and fairly inexpensive shop that fixes/repairs ECU's. Thanks!

Farts and compost.

Oh, and Google is your best friend. Figured you would know that by now, unless you're new to ATS and the Internet.

wow,that sounds technical!!! i have no idea what you just said,but i'm thinking a horse and buggy might be in order!
probably cost the same to feed the horse as it would be to gas up your machine!
plus you can use his poop to fertalize your garden!!!!
in other words,i can't help you,but good luck!

Depending on the year of your Honda.....I had a 1992 civic and the ECU was damaged and I picked one up at the local scrap yard for like $50

So, it looks like my advice is the best one.



Just fyi, this vid was one of the first results on Google. Maybe if you tried it, you might get a little further instead of letting ATS horses do the work for you.

There's a little something to be said for independence and resourcefulness, you know?

...oh, wait, did you need the nearest bodyshop? Sorry, need more information. But maybe you can buy the part and do it yourself. Bound to be cheaper!

Thanks. Just trying to see if anyone knew of a shop they have dealt with, and liked their service...

Swapping is not fixing!!! Why would I swap an old ECU? It could have the same issue, and it has to be reflashed by a dealer with the vin, etc. Might as well get the one I have repaired, thus the question of, does anyone know of a good repair shop?

I build turbo dodge racecars and generally when a CPU goes bad I'd just replace it from a junkyard if possible. But if it is a common problem with that model I would visit a Honda Fan Forum and buy someone's modified version. You would be surprised how much better cars run when you have your CPU recalibrated frOm stock Settings and usually the person that writes the code will fix any normal defect free of charge.

A good shop, sure.

Go to the end of the block, turn right.
Go about 5 blocks, they are across the street from the church.

(Oh, wait.....you didn't even tell us what country you are in)
