Default changing ECU

The voltage requlator aspect of my ECU would not allow my battery to fully recharge. I purchased a refurbished ECU and installed it. My car started right up. The battery is now fully charged. No error codes. Drives like a dream and the ATX shifts much better. Totally satisfied. Thanks to All Computer Exchange

Some time we have other things we are not aware of going on. A good PCM can fix. Have replace one on one of mine. Good your back on the road.

Great it worked out for you.
What did it cost, and how long did it take to get it?

How did you determine is was the ECU not allowing the battery to be fully charged.

That would be great information for others to know that may have similar issues.!

I determined my battery was not being fully charged by my ECU. I had to call the tow truck different times, to get a jump. Drove to Walmart and had them check it out. They tested the battery, it charged up just fine. I did some web search and found that Chryslers have a common voltage regulator problem, due to the ECU. I changed it out and everything is fine and back to normal.

How about sharing where you got it, how long it took to get, and how much???
If someone else needs one, that'd be a big help.
