so that is the side of the ecm , did you take it off to do repairs ?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
It is the side of ecm, did not remove for repairs.
Nissan Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 1 month ago

Well, a hard hit on that side, and fuse are checked and you can communicate with all other modules expect that one and no wire damage ,that leaves the ecm itself, my thinking the hard hot can break solder on the circuit board .

unplug ecm connector and check for any water intrusion ,any bent pins , backed out pins ,etc,, i doubt it but lets check
