Title: 2003 1.8T A4
Post by: English on October 21, 2008, 08:27:50 AM
so i friend of mine just purchased a 2003 1.8T A4, he said it has a light on the dash that says "ECM"?
I have not looked at the car, i'm looking at it tonight, but wanted to know what you guys think it may be?
Also, what is the cars designation, ie B5, B6 etc?

as always, thanks in advance! :)

Electronic Control Module, I believe it is part or the same thing as the ECU.  I believe the modules can fail, there seemed to be some major posts about it in the past on Audiworld.  I also believe there are repair kits out there to help reduce the out of warranty costs on the fix.

do a search on Audi world for ECM or ECM light, or Audi ECM on google, that may be more helpful than what I am saying :)
