Default EMC


I need to replace the ECM in my 2005 Nismo. I'm wondering if the ECM needs to be installed on the truck in order for the dealer to program the unit or I can just bring the unit to the dealer for them to program then install it at home.

The ECM needs to be installed on the truck in order for them to program it. But, it won't start unless the ECM is programmed, so you would be best to have the dealer install and program the ECM at the dealer unless you want to install it yourself and then tow the truck to the dealer.
