Benefits of Repairing vs. Replacing a Control Module | ModuleExperts

Underneath the hood of your car, there is a whole host of intricate and finely-calibrated Electronic Control Modules (ECM) that are designed to keep your vehicle in precise working order. An imbalance in any one of them could be disastrous to the optimal functioning of your vehicle. If one of them is not working properly or becomes damaged, it can severely affect the driveability of your car, to the point where the vehicle cannot be operated at all. When a control module is damaged, your first thought might be to simply replace it. There are, however, significant advantages to trying to have it repaired first.

1.Reduced Cost

The cost to repair a control module is considerably less than what it would cost to replace it with a remanufactured unit. Also, with a remanufactured replacement unit, you run the risk of additional labor and on-board programming costs to sync the new module to your vehicle. When ModuleExperts repairs your original module, programming is retained to ensure that it works flawlessly with your vehicle.

2. Reduced Time

Depending on the module and age of the vehicle, locating a replacement may not be the quickest solution, thus increasing your vehicle downtime. ModuleExperts has the experience, expertise and state-of-the-art tools needed to repair your control module. Most repairs can be turned around in 1-2 days, and expedited shipping is available to help you get back on the road faster.

3. Warranty

At ModuleExperts, we back our repair work with a life-time warranty! This is included with your Repair & Return order (R&R).

Diagnostics and Your Control Module

Every control module that comes to ModuleExperts undergoes a thorough Diagnostic Evaluation Service (DES). Our DES includes:

  • External inspection and internal examination.
  • Communication check.
  • Testing of components, capacitors, solder, trace lines, internal circuit board, processor and more.

Repairing Your Control Module

The repair process is the next step. We follow set guidelines when repairing your ECM:

  • The issues are duplicated and the problem component(s) isolated.
  • The damaged component(s) are repaired and tested to ensure that the module is operating correctly.
  • Other areas of the module are inspected and updated as needed.
  • Information is provided regarding the repair and any other steps that may need to be performed.

If we cannot repair or rebuild your module so that it meets our stringent quality standards, we can often offer you a remanufactured unit that provides exceptional performance and reliability at a fraction of the cost of a new one. When a repair is not feasible ModuleExperts will apply the cost of the Repair & Diagnostic Evaluation Service into the total cost for a replacement part, making it more cost effective for you.
