Q: Do I need to repair or replace my ECM?

asked by on November 10, 2016

My truck broke down the other day on my way to town. I've had problems with it stalling in the past but not recently. I sat for awhile then tried to start it and it fired up and ran fine until I got home. I plugged my programmer into it and it threw a p0606 ecm fault code as well as a drive shaft code that I read is related to the pcm code. My question is how much roughly does it cost to fix the ecm issue? Thank you for your help in advance.
