2005 Acura RSX bad ECU?

Hi all,

Looking for some help. I have a 05 RSX that was diagnosed with a faulty ECU. Any recommendations would be great, where I can get it replaced locally if possible for a decent price, also the possibility of doing a 02-04 ECU and chipping it.

Kpro is the best thing you can do.. If you were to buy a new ECU which i have my stock 05-06 ecu if your serious I can sell it for $100. but if you were to buy a ecu thats not kpro'd you need to take your car to acura/honda for them to set up the immobilizer to work so you can start your car.. I think you can probably just bring the ecu, your keys, and the ignition to them but im not 100% sure on that. but either way the Stealerships will probably charge you an arm and a leg to do that

You can buy a 05-06 kpro on clubrsx for probably $1000 i got mine for $900 locally
Plus I swear to you Kpro will be the best modification/upgrade you can do to your car and will be well worth it in the long run

i hope this reaches you in time before you blow your money on random shit. i had an 06 diagnosed with a bad ECU, went digging around by the ECU and found there is 2 fuses right behind the glove box. they are kinda hidden so take the glove box out and maybe take the ECU for more room. They are right between the ECU and glove box. Make sure those arent blown, mine were and i replaced them. My car started right up after that
