Why Engine Computers Fail

There are many reasons why they die.  They’re electronics, after all — moisture, foreign particles, and temperature extremes affect them gravely, even if they’re hermetically encased in very tough rugged metal.  Some old OBD-I designs may incur electrical overloads such as shorted acutators, while even an OBD-II unit can admit leaks from, for example, windshield seals.

Corroded harness connectors, vibrations from improper mounting, or simple mechanical damage…the installer replacing your engine computer can determine any number of causes.  The engine computer, technically known as an Engine Control Module (ECM) or Engine Control Unit (ECU), is these days often just a part of the larger Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and so may also fail due to reasons related to the PCM.  Again, it will take the careful diagnosis of a properly trained and experienced technician to verify the precise reason for malfunctioning.
