There are common symptoms your vehicle will exhibit when things are out of sync. Typically, there will also be one or more Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) once the vehicle has been scanned.
The key functions of the ECM are to regulate the timing of the ignition, the amount of fuel delivered to the engine and other components to meet the precise parameters that your vehicle’s engine requires to run smoothly. This is accomplished by the module constantly reading values obtained by various performance maps and using signals…
The control modules that regulate nearly every aspect of your vehicle’s performance are a vital part of its overall health. They rely on intricate electronic mechanisms to operate properly. Occurrences, such as extreme weather, can render them inoperable and adversely affect your vehicle’s performance.
The Body Control Module (BCM) could be considered a central organizational module for your vehicle. It streamlines the manufacturing and troubleshooting aspects of electronic modules by housing the modules into one, central unit instead of each function having its own device. It also coordinates the operating functions of many non-engine related ancillary items as well as security features. If your BCM begins to malfunction, you will notice a negative effect on the operation of the various parts that the Body Control Module commands and it’s likely that you’ll experience one or more of the following symptoms:
There is a whole host of intricate and finely-calibrated control modules that are designed to keep your vehicle in precise working order. An imbalance in any one of them could prove to be disastrous to the optimal functioning of your vehicle. Here are a few (of many) components that we service, their acronyms, and common names.
When one of your vehicle’s control modules becomes damaged, it can significantly impact its performance and drivability. For many, the cost to completely repair a control module may not be in the budget. However, at ModuleExperts we have the tools and expertise to effectively repair nearly every type of control module, and program it to your exact vehicle, at a fraction of the cost of a complete replacement.
As the primary computer control for your vehicle, your powertrain control module (PCM) plays a vital role in ensuring that your engine and transmission work in tandem. When your PCM fails, it typically exhibits one or more different behaviors. Knowing these symptoms can help you pinpoint the root cause of the problem so you can get your vehicle back up and running.
Over the years, vehicles have evolved in many different ways. In our new infographic, we take a look at how the technology in vehicles has changed over the decades.
