HiCustomer welcome to Just Answer. I'm acuramstr. That is the controll unit for the SRS airbag system the PCM (ECU) is behind the glove box heres a picture


Customer: replied 7 years ago.

if im getting codes for the ecu like air mixture and gear ratio will it prevent the car from shifting properly. i got a new ecu for it and im hoping that it fixes the issue. starts fine and goes into reverse but when you put into drive ..... nothing. anyway just thought that i would ask i appreciate your help.

Unfortuinetly the gear ratio code could mean you have a bad trans. These transmissions do this quite often on this model. Check the condition of the fluid if it is burnt or has debris in it (strain through a paint strainer) you likely need to overhaul the trans.
