The ECU that is being installed must be New or OE Reconditioned. No Used ECUs will be guaranteed. Drew may attempt a service event for Ford, GM & Chrysler modules ONLY. Drew will not attempt service events on used Asian or Eurpoean modules. (learn more)
You must follow the instructions of the remote technician.
There can be no other inherent problems with the vehicle, such as faulty ground connection or an aftermarket accessory that is interfering. In such case, you will be responsible for the cost to rectify the problem.
