Default EBCM Issue?

So the melted wiring was fixed, the radio replaced, and now I'm told I need a new EBCM. I am not familiar with this piece. Is it an electronic module or a mechanical module? Could a shade-tree mechanic install one or does it require an experienced tech?

Also, now that the car is back from the shop, the ABS seems to be working and the Traction Control is active. I thought this was controlled by the EBCM? If its bad, why are these things working now?

Maybe you should tell us:

1. What happened. If this is covered in some other topic, continue in that topic.

2. What doesn't work? What symptoms?

Thank you, Haro.

In a nutshell, the stability system service warning was ignored. After a couple of months, the ABS and Traction Control were shut down by the computer, presumably because it could not get reliable feedback. Being cheep and working crazy hours, I just let it be "for the time being".

I am amazed at the fact that the safety systems shutting down weren't enough to motivate me, but low and behold, the radio goes out, and its off the the shop. Funny what some of us will live with and without.

I would think that at least the ABS, if not the traction control, would not be working properly with a bad EBCM. This is the instructions on replacement. Click also on the "parts and labor" link, and you'll see that it is a very expensive part so you'll want to be sure that'* the problem.

Please continue in your other topic so we don't have to re-hash all this. Double posting on the same issue is discouraged for this reason.
