What is an ECU?

The Electronic Control Unit (ECU) of a vehicle is usually compared to the brain in human beings as it is the part of the vehicle that controls that everything is running smoothly, ensuring the optimal performance of the engine.

This in-car computer communicates with the vehicle’s engine to control a wide array of parameters such as: horsepower, fuel pump, idle speed, torque, ignition timing, carbon dioxide, valve timing, etc.

To repair this vital component of every modern car a very sophisticated equipment and specialized personnel is needed. Thankfully, ECU Maverick is one of the foremost specialist in this kind of repairs, with a proven experience repairing ECUs for every manufacturer and model existing in the market.

The Electronic Control Unit (ECU) is sometimes referred to as Electronic Control Module (ECM) or Powertrain Control Module (PCM). Essentially, its function is to read the values received from a wide range of sensors, performing millions of calculations per seconds, and then interpret the data using lookup tables to ensure the best engine performance. This includes ensuring the lowest emission rates and the best engine performance.
