Thank you for allowing me to help you with this concern today and am sorry to hear that this is happening. I will have to ask you a few questions so that I can get a better understanding as to what may be going on with your Corolla.Could you tell me more about how this concern started? Did it just happen all of a sudden?Is the key you are using start the car previously?

hey how are you. ok well this is an auction vehicle & there is no history. When I looked at the car it had another ecm installed I tried rewriting the Vin and jumping the 2 terminals at the DC and it did the same thing. So I installed the supposedly original ecm and the vehicle started and the code went away but the next day other was back to square 1 same thing starts and Cutts off & code B2799
