To see unsolicited testimonials from some of our customers, you will find us on Facebook at: Rav4 ECM Repair on Facebook
We are offering the service for repairing, rebuilding and finally reprogramming your 2001, 2002 and 2003 Toyota Rav4 ECM (ECU).
The automatic 01-03 Toyota Rav4 models, either 4WD or 2WD, are commonly having issues with the transmission, with symptoms that may suggest a bad transmission. The good news is that in 98% of the cases (1 out of 50), the problem will be fixed for good by just CORRECTLY
repairing or replacing the ECM (Engine Control Module). This module controls the engine and the automatic transmission of your vehicle. Our solution here is to professionally repair your ECM and it is offered in a very affordable price.
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 with a "bump" in reverse
-Sometimes it feels like it is braking by itself
-Rattling, clicking or weird noise coming form the engine/transmission area
-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 and P1760 codes
-Consumption of too much fuel in many cases (low fuel economy)
This issue will also affect
-The 2001, 2002 and 2003 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 above described vehicles are welcome here for service.
This is something to be treated with urge! This will happen to ALL 2001-2003 Toyota Rav4 ECMs if it is not replaced or PROPERLY serviced. Some will fail soon, while other may take some more days, months or even years. It all depends on usage, vibration, temperature and moisture of your area.
Once the ECM starts failing, the automatic transmission starts to be in high risk of getting damaged by the ECM 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. It would be no surprise that your vehicle is one of them if it falls in the descriptions made in this information page.
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.
The rule is, if it is a 2001-2004 Toyota Rav4 with engine type 1AZ-FE (2.0L), 1AZ-FSE (2.0L) or 2AZ-FE (2.4L), then we can fix it for you!

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.
The warranty in months, included on this job is shown at the top of this page at the center box.
Out TAT is only one business day. This may extend to 2 business days when work load is very high.
