Clean 08, recently repaired ECM looking for advice. . .

Hi all,

I'm in the market for a newer Armada but I have been a Dodge/Jeep guy.

Its a clean 08 with 117K miles, 4x4 with the tow package and trans temp gauge. Does it come with an external trans cooler if it has the tow package?

I'm not worried about the rear end collision back in 2012.

The thing that worries me is the ECM that was recently repaired.

Could you guys shed some light on the subject a little, are there any common issues with the ECM? I have read that there was a recall on the ECM relay, could that have been the issue? I'm hesitant because they are selling it after it was repaired for a second time.

We are going to drive 90 miles tomorrow to go see it. I will be sure to ask pointed questions on the subject, but if there are any specific questions I should ask please let me know.

Thanks all and look forward to joining the land yacht club!

That could be something as simple as a flash/update to resolve the emissions failure. Ask to see the repair paperwork so you better understand the scope of what was done.

If the seller can't/won't provide the paperwork then I would walk.

maybe they mean the IPDM relay?

I can't see a random company "repairing" the brain itself, but can see perhaps a wire harness being faulty, and/or the IPDM..

can you grab a code/scan tool and see if there are any codes on the obd port?

source to ecm recall? does the recall affect your specific vin?

as Crazy stated, get more details and ask directly. ECM failures are not common on armads from what ive seen over the years on a few nissan forums...
