This answer was rated:

My Pontiac Vibe 2006 was tested and P0607 Control Module Performance was indicated as a fault.
While driving suddently car stopped. Is it possible to fix this problem by my husband- if yes which parts he should check and where they are located. How approximately the repair of this problem might cost in case profesional service is requiered ?

Hello and welcome to Just answer.com, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.

That code is internal with the PCM, (powertrain control module) and it would need to be replaced.

They are all pretty close to the same price and the labor, (with programming) is the same. The factory warranty would not cover it, being that it's 4 years old, (3/36)

Thank you for your answer. My question is what cause is of this problem ? The car is pretty new and so much problems already.
As with any electronic component the PCM can go bad at any time. Sometimes if they are rained on, or the vehicle gets flooded, they will go bad. Then again, sometimes they just go bad without any explanation as to why. There are some that have gone bad much newer than that. I have seen some, right off the truck that needed to be replaced, (not on the Vibe though) on other GM products.
