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.
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.
As technology continues to advance and move forward, so does the way our vehicles operate and run. It seems more and more parts rely on computers, sensors, and capacitors than ever before. The ECM or Electronic Control Module (Engine Control Module) and PCM or Powertrain Control Module are both examples of these technological advancements. There are many factors that affect their life span.
