Good AfternoonCustomer The ECU for Engine Mgmt is located in the passenger compartment on the right side kick panel behind the moulding cover .... You will need to remove the negative battery cable first...Next, touch a metal surface in the vehicle to get rid of any static electricity you may have on your body...Next remove the trim cover beneath the glove box...It is held in place with 3 screws...Then use a 10mm or 12mm driver to remove the mountings...unplug the 3 plugs by depressing the tab in the center of the connector and pulling away...If I can be of further assistance please let me know...jeffrey590

They should be torx screws(star pattern) that are either 10mm or 12mm.... remove these for access to ECM...jeffrey590
