Hello and thank you for your question,

Was this repair done to correct the code P0741 back in 2010?

I'm not sure I just bought the car in trying to see if they installed the correct ecm one of the other techs on this site cross references the numbers I gave you and told him they installed the wrong one

I am trying to see if they installed the correct one in this car
Toyota Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Toyota released a service bulletin back the that dealt with the code P0741 which did call for replacing the ECM . The part number you have listed is not in the bulletin which means either your part number is ***** or they did not replace it with the correct one or it was updated. I have enclosed the bulletin in the link below, copy and paste it to your browser to open and view it. Take a look at the parts listing and you will see the part number you have listed is not on the list.

If they did happen to install the correct ecm and that isn't an updated number on the part would it be smarter to replace the tcc solenoid first and see if that solves the problem or save the money and put it towards a tranny overhaul
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
If they did install the wrong ecm would they fix the problem for free since they installed the wrong ecm
Toyota Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

As long as the transmission is not failing then I would say yes. Its going to be up to them. They should have all the records on file to what was actually done.
