Default Looking for an ECM for a Dodge Cummins 24 Valve

Anyone know where I can get an used ECM for my ram? (side of the block). I'm thinking that is where my electrical issue is coming from. I would prefer to get a used one for a decent price so Im not out too much if that doesnt fix it. Im not big on used stuff for that kind fo an item but Im just not 100% sure thats the issue yet.

The local junk yard would be your best bet.

You might contact Chris Snyder, CSnyder on here, and see if he has one.

Exactly what kind of electrical issues are you having? Just about all problems can be traced to an open connection, bad ground, or a short circuit (blown fuse).

A salvage yard ECM is most likely the cheapest answer and have it flashed for your VIN number. But the most reliable is going to be a Mopar ECM but the most expensive.

ECM ground is the driver side battery cable.

well ive been without gauges for about 2 years. I had my PCM (firewall mounted) sent out and was told its fine so weve been chasing wires and checking voltage on wires from wiring diagrams Ive recieved from mopar1973man (graciously appreciated) and all we can come up with is the ECM (block mounted) must be bad but I dont want to buy a new one until I find out for SURE that its bad. It would be nice if I could just borrow one....lol

Here is a suggestion..... Pull the kick panel off the behind the parking brake pedal and check the ground connection there. There have been many issues caused by that connection relating to gauges and the OBD II connector.
