RAV4 ECU repairs - How our service works
First of all the problem needs to be diagnosed, you can do that yourself if you have the Toyota diagnostic tools, take it to a garage or better still, bring it in to us at Cartronics and we'll do it for you.
If you have already sent your ECU to another company and the fault is still the same, please still send it to us and as long as no damage has been caused we should still be able to repair it.
Examples of RAV4 ECM units that are having these problems are listed below, but there are several more, so don't hesitate on asking us or acquiring the service if you don't see your ECM's number in the list below. Simple rule, if it is an Automatic, 2001, 2002 or 2003 Toyota RAV4, either 4x2 or 4x4, then it is one of the affected models.
Once the problem has been confirmed as being the ECU unit and not some other electrical problem; then either leave your RAV4 with us, bring it to us or send us the ECU taking advantage of our superfast repair service. If you wish to remove the ECU yourself then take a look at our removal instructions
If you’re sending it to us simply follow this link to find out how.
We will ‘live’ test the unit before repairing it and 'live' test the unit after we repair before we send it back to you, to insure its working 100%, normally posting it back within 24 hours of receipt.
When you receive your repaired unit all you have to do is install and perform a few accelerations. The reset adaptation may lead to an unusually low idle but should return to normal after 30 miles.
NOTE: Please ignore any videos or talk on the Internet that suggests that you can repair the RAV4 ECU yourself, they are totally wrong – and that’s why we’re so busy!
