Dodge Ram 1500 Replacement Electronic Control Unit Information


The Dodge Ram 1500 is a heavy-duty, sturdy, full-size truck that is designed to impress with its power, luxury, torque and horsepower; and, in newer versions, it's designed to impress with its more eco-friendly design. These are intricate and complex vehicles comprised of many parts, systems and units that work together to keep passengers safe and get the job done. Many of these systems and subsystems (think fuel injection, ignition timing, idle speed control, windows, etc.) are controlled and managed via an electronic control unit. This unit is basically the brains of the operation--a circuit board that tells your Ram 1500 how to work. When the electronic control unit is compromised and/or broken, several systems or subsystems will cease to function. If you're in the market for a new electronic control unit for your Dodge Ram 1500 visit Parts Geek's website.

Research on Electronic Control Unit for Dodge Ram 1500

Did you know that your truck has a brain? The electronic control unit (ECU) usually refers to the engine control module (ECM) or the powertrain control module (PCM). If you have problems with your check engine light coming on and can't seem to find a mechanic reason for it, you could have an electrical problem that likely is the ECM. If you suspect that you have Dodge Ram 1500 ECM problems, you can have the part replaced or do the job yourself.

What the Engine Control Module Does

The ECU or ECM is the computer center for your truck. It sends and receives electrical signals from your truck's systems as you drive. This is also the unit where trouble codes are stored until you or a mechanic pulls them to determine the cause of a check engine light. Think of the engine control module as the conductor for the orchestra of the systems on your Dodge Ram 1500. On Ram 1500 cars with gasoline engines, the ECM is usually referred to as the powertrain control module (PCM) whereas on Dodge Ram 1500 diesel trucks, it is dubbed the ECM. On both versions of Dodge Ram, the ECM location

is in the engine compartment, usually on the firewall in front of the dashboard.

Signs of Problems with the Electronic Control Unit or Engine Control Module

Because it is a computer, problems with your Dodge Ram 1500 ECM or ECU may look like what happens when you have a computer malfunction. The check engine light usually comes on and is accompanied by a variety of codes for unrelated systems. Rough or nonexistent performance or stalling could also indicate that the computer for your truck has essentially crashed. If you notice any of these problems, get your Dodge Ram 1500 to a professional for replacement of the ECM.

How Much is it for a New Electronic Control Unit

The cost for a new electronic control unit, PCM, or ECM will depend on how much your mechanic bills you per hour of work. You should not try to replace the ECM or take on a Dodge Ram 1500 ECU upgrade on your own. Because your truck's computer is so complicated and installing a new one will require programming, you will not be able to do the job, but you can purchase the part yourself and have an expert program and install it for you. A new electronic control unit can cost $375 or more for a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 PCM replacement. This is just for the part, and it does not include the price of labor, but this does not have to be your final price.

Use Your Brain to Find Great Deals for Your Truck's Brain

Like any electronic device, the electronic control unit is one of the more expensive parts on your truck, but it is a replacement that your Dodge Ram 1500 cannot operate without. To get your ECM or PCM for your truck for less, go to PartsGeek.com, where you can get deals that will make your trip to the website more than worth it.

STOOD BY THEIR PRODUCT

I ordered a ECU for my Dodge Ram 1500. They had it to me in two day's which was amazing on regular shipping. Unfortunately it came in with a failure (remaned part, third party company). I was quite anxious about getting my money back. However after a couple of emails my money was returned without a hassle. Good to see an online company can operate with integrity.

Thanks Partsgeek I will be back
