Oh my, this can be expensive. You did not provide any Vehicle info. What you can do is this. Be aware that the computers are programmed for specific engines, trans, rear differentials, and a few other options. States like California have different Emissions standards and are different units.

That said, the cheapest option is a good Salvaged computer from Carparts.com or another Salvage yard. Check the Carparts.com site and see how it works. The pitfall of Salvaged parts is that you have to be careful you have an exact match. Some vehicles have 1 engine, 1 trans, 1 axle ratio choice so you can not go wrong.

Rebuilt parts can be fine and many bad computers like yours are rebuilt. New computers are very expensive.

One final thing to advise you about. Some computers are read/write capable. This means that your computer may be good, just missing the programming. This can sometimes happen when testing or if there is a short in a wire. The programming can be added or "flashed" back into your old computer. So it is possible that your computer is just Empty.

Dealers have the programming and you should find out if that is the problem before buying anything.

Please rate my info.
