Types Of ECU:

With vehicles having multiple ECU they’re divided on what tasks they perform. a number of these types are as follows.

  1. Engine Control Module: With its sensors, the ECM ensures the number of fuel and ignition timing necessary to induce the foremost power and economy out of the engine.
  2. Brake Control Module: Used in vehicles with ABS, the BCM makes sure that the wheels aren’t skidding and determine when to trigger braking and abandoning of the brake to confirm the wheels don’t lock up.
  3. Transmission Control Module: Used on an automatic vehicle, the TCM ensures you get the smoothest shifts possible by assessing the engine RPM and acceleration of the car.
  4. Telematic Control Module: Another one with the identical abbreviation this TCU ensures the car onboard services are up and running. It controls the satellite navigation and Internet and phone connectivity of the vehicle.
  5. Suspension Control Module: Present in Cars with active suspension systems, the SCM ensures the proper ride height and optimal changes to suspension reckoning on the driving condition.


When ECU Is Faulty:

A faulty ECU is maybe the worst thing for a car. It’ll work but its performance is heavily affected. You’ll notice sudden drops in fuel economy and jerky gear shifts. The check engine light staying on might mean plenty of possible errors but an ECU fault is one of the most important ones.


When ECU is Dead:

The car won’t start in the slightest degree. The ECU controls the engine ignition so a dead one won’t start the car in the least. Other features won’t work in addition but frankly if the engine is dead other features don’t really matter that much.
