Removal instructions for the ECU found in Toyota RAV4’s 2001-2003. If your 2001 – 2003 RAV4 is experiencing gearbox issues then it is probably your ECU. This is a problem Toyota is aware of and as car electrical specialists, we can help resolve.

The ECM controls both the engine and the transmission. It is a problem in the circuit that happens over time, making it fail. You could be driving your RAV4 with a faulty ECU and it will eventually cause a serious transmission failure. It is a hardware and not a software problem so re-programming will just hide the problem and not solve the actual issue.

We are in the UK and can repair your RAV4 ECU while you wait or send it to us to using our 24 hour repair service.
