bad ecm


Recommended Posts

Has anyone had bad ecm. I think I do because my fan runs all the time and it leans out and doesn't respond to O2 signal quickly. I replaced the O2 not the issue I have a afr gauge on it and it goes lean but the computer doesn't respond. I can drive part throttle and the engine dies and comes back back and forth fuel pressure and ignition are good. Anyone have a issue like this or have any input?

Trace all your wiring from O2 switch all the way back to the ECM. Look for rubs that could cause shorts in your 02 harness.

We had a similar problem with our T4 and the wire was rubbing on the starter and all of our wires had melted together in the 4 wire harness.

Also the dealer let us pull our ECM and he put it in a new trooper just to make sure it was not a ECM problem. Good Luck.

      I've had a battery failure and need one replacement.  The local distributor told me it might take up to four weeks to get one.  I'd like to order one in sooner than that if possible.  Any help would be appreciated.

      I have a MSU 500. I will start and run but requires basically full throttle to move. Does this machine have a drive belt? If so how difficult to change?

      I realize that many of you do not have diesel machines.  For those that do, this is for you:
      Just wanted to post my experience this past week.  Here in Texas, we had pretty good dip in temps.  For 4 days it did not get above 25.  At night, it was single digits or close to it.  I always put Sta-Bil fuel stabilizer in the storage tank (30 gallon).  And up until this tank I was using Power Service (white bottle) for anti-gel.  Never had an issue.
      This tank, however, I switched to Stabil All season (anti gel).  It is supposed to good down to -40.  Zap.  That is a big fat lie.  I put in twice the amount called for in the instructions.  Result was less than optimal.  I drove the SxS 100 feet (to go get the mail) and it died.  I looked at the fuel bowl and it was a cloudy, wax substance.  So, the Stabil did not work.  That said, I'm not sure that I ever tested the Power Service in the same manner.  So I am not saying that one is better than the other.
      What are your experiences?  Are these products inferior?  What do you folks in the northern states / Canada use?  Am I missing something?

      Hi, 
      I have a Coleman UT400 that is a couple years old (2021), that won't seem to hold a charge. We have replaced the battery several times, and the unit will startup and run for a period of time, then die out. When I attempt to restart, it acts as if the battery is weak. Install a new battery, and it repeats the cycle. 
      Do the magnetos go bad on these things? If so, how hard are they to get to and change?
       
      Thanks!

      I ordered one on ebay part number 19206-115-0000 and it didn't fit. It had 18mm threads where the bad part has a smaller thread size. I haven't measured it yep but I think it is probably 16mm. Any help would be appreciated.
