Are you asking if the ECM needs to be programmed when installing a new one on this vehicle?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I know it needs reprogrammed. Can I do it myself or does it have to go to the dealer?
Chevy Mechanic: AMEDEE, CHEVY TECHNICIAN replied 7 months ago

What type of tools or equipment do you have? How do you plan on programming it yourself?
