I contacted a local dealership today, and asked the guy in the service dept how much it would cost to flash a "used" ECM.

He started in on how most "used/salvage" yard ecm wouldn't take a reprogram, and some would, and that a new ecm was best, and on, and on.

I finally got a word in edge wise, and told him Nissan discontinued that part number for my car [which is the truth as I would just buy a new ECM if it was available for the money I've seen on Nissan parts websites, aka, around $600], and there WASN'T anywhere to buy a new ecm.

Then he kinda lightened up, and told me the price to reflash/program the ecm, which was reasonable at $103.

Was he telling me the truth about it being hit/miss with reprogramming the used ECM?

No dealer tech likes using used parts, but some circumstances call for it. Any part from a salvage yard is hit or miss, so, hopefully yours will be a "hit!"

Yeah, that's what I hate about modern vehicles.

Back in the day with my Fords I kept an extra ignition module, and coil in the glove box, along with a fuseable linke, starter solenoid, and fuel filter, along with used belts, an hoses.

So if/when the car broke down all I had to do was look down in the carb to physically see if it was getting fuel.

If it had fuel, next was to check for spark. No spark meant that it was either the coil, module, or rare cases the pickup in the dizzy.

No taking the car to the friggin dealership for a damned reprogram.

You know, thinking back I NEVER was left stranded by any of my old Fords. ONCE a thermostat wouldn't open so I had to pull over wait for everything to cool, then swap it out. After that I bought fail safe therms where when they failed they failed in the open position, not closed.

The only problem I had with my old Fords was gas mileage, for which I'm seriously thinking about buying something like an old 56 Ford Crown Vic, and restomodding it with a six speed, AC, stereo, bigger brakes, etc.
