Default 2001 Nissan Maxima ECM

I have a 2001 Maxima that has an ECM issue. Has anyone else bought a refurbished ECM for their Nissan and did it have any issues? I was told it is best to get a brand new ECM with an Idle Control Valve also, but that runs to over a $1,000 and I can't see spending that kind of money if a refurbished one will do the job. Any feedback is appreciated.

I've heard from some people that had gotten their ECM repaired at Circuit Board Medics after they had the ECM shorted by the IACV and they had good results.

Make sure you either disconnect or replace the electronic motor mounts before you install the repaired ecm. The motor mount failure is what causes the damage to the ecm and Iacv.
