To see unsolicited testimonials from some of our customers, you will find us on Facebook at: Rav4 ECM Repair on Facebook
The 2001-2005 Toyota Rav4 models, either 4WD or 2WD, are commonly having issues with the automatic transmission and symptoms may suggest the transmission needs repair or replacement. The good news is that in 99% of the cases, the problem is a bad ECM (Engine Control Module) and we can fix it for good at a very affordable price. This ECM module, controls the engine and the automatic transmission of your vehicle. We offer a professional solution for repairing and rebuilding it and the job is backed by a 2-year warranty.
You would need to uninstall (remove) your ECM from your vehicle (easily done, no mechanic needed), and mail it to our location. We repair, rebuild and reprogram it. Then it is rushed back to you and you will be ready to enjoy your car again in a way that you probably did not before.
Further below you will find a drawing with the location of the ECM
The following are the most common symptoms, but there are more symptoms not listed here:
-Hesitation or harsh shifting, specially in 3rd gear
-Harsh engagement in reverse, often slamming into the gear
-Sometimes it feels like it is braking by itself
-Rattling, clicking or weird noise coming form the front of the vehicle when engine is on
-One day it magically works ok and the other day, all the issues are back
-Issues show up only when cold or only when hot
-When stopping in a red traffic light and start moving again, it feels very heavy or sluggish
-Check engine or trouble codes are not present in most cases
-If check engine is present, it gives P0750, P0753, P0755, P0758 or P1760 codes
-In many cases, lower fuel economy than before
This issue will also affect
-The 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 and some 2005 MANUAL
Toyota Rav4 ECMs. The most common issue is lower fuel economy, but will also cause some other minor issues.
-The 2001, 2002 and 2003 Toyota Picnic and Toyota Avensis ECMs.
-The 2004 Toyota Rav4 automatic ECM, either 4x4 (AWD or All Wheels Drive) or 4x2 (FWD or Front Wheels Drive)
All the ECMs of the vehicles described above are service here.
This is something to be treated with urge! This will happen to ALL 2001-2004 and some 2005 Toyota Rav4 ECMs. Some will fail soon. Others may take some more time. It all depends on use, vibration, temperature, altitude, relative humidity of your area and several other factors.
Once the ECM starts failing, the automatic transmission starts to be in high risk of getting damaged by this failure. Are you wondering if your vehicle is affected by this? Did you know that about 246,000 Rav4 units are affected by this issue in USA alone? We can expect a total of more than half a million affected units worldwide. Your vehicle will fall in this list if it is 2001-2005 Rav4, Avensis or Picnic model (some late 2000 models too) with automatic transmission.
Below is a partial list of the Toyota part numbers affected. This number is shown in the label of the ECM. If the part number of your ECM is not in this list, you may contact us to make sure if your ECM is one of the affected parts.
WHERE IS THE ECM LOCATED?
Below is a picture showing the location of the ECM in the 2001, 2002 and 2003 Toyota Rav4:
Q: There are many competitors, bringing this service. So you might be asking yourself, why sending it to us?
A: It is simple, because we go further than all our competitors to make sure that you will have the best experience with us and to make sure that this issue will not happen again to your vehicle. We do not only repair the problem, but we reprogram the ECM, fix minor issues that the customer might not even be aware of and finally, we rebuild the complete unit.
We constantly receive units that were previously worked out by our competitors. These units have been sent to us by unhappy customers, trying for a second time to fix their ECMs, because all previous service attempts failed. This is the way we have known of the poor job that many of our competitors do.
Our TAT is only one business day. This may extend to 2 business days when work load is high.
