    Default Corolla Gli Ecotech CNG ECU Changed.

    Hi,
    I was called for a visit to bring my GLi Ecotech for its 1st inspection alongwith the added benefits of FREE Toyota 20W-50 Oil and Genuine Oil Filter.YES totally FREE. Now that was the actual deal why i decided to visit them.Otherwise i know that they do nothing special. Anyways to my surprise the Toyota Cantt motor people told me that they would be changing my CNG ECU free of cost. Hey Hey hey. Wait!!! Whats going on ??? Upon my question there came the incharge who explained the reason.
    Reason :: Sir, There is this system in the car that when u are driving the car and your CNG finishes, the car automatically converts to Petrol. Now as soon as the car converts to Petrol mode by itself the ECU engages the Emergency Mode. Now after getting the CNG filled you have to press a button to make it Exit from Emergency mode. People here do not press the Exit Emergency button and keep on running there car on Emergency mode which results in ECU being dead!!!!!..So IMC has ordered to change the previous ECUs with NEW ECUs which do not have this functionality.
    I stopped the incharge there and then!! I said well i got the car booked from you guys. waited for around 25 days, came to collect the car upon your call. Then why didnt any1 of you authorised people tell me about that process!! That i have to exit the emergency mode ! Well i was not that much pissed as Alhamdulillah i had never gone through the situation where CNG ended and the car converted to Petrol by itself.

    So if any1 of your friends and family have Ecotech Corolla tell them to visit the 3S Toyota Dealership alongwith their Warranty Card to get the Ecu Changed Free of Cost. As many people buy the cars from normal car showrooms, thus IMC would not be having their contact numbers to call them..

    As far as my knowledge is concerned, there are some vehicles of first lot in CNG category, in which ECU needs to be changed, this is not valid for each and every CNG toyota vehicle.Toyota people have chassis nos. with them of whom ECU's are to be changed, while in other vehicles, there is no such requirement for replacement..

    Thanks mate.

    @engineersngpl

    Ok you might be rite, But after changing the ECU, the put a RED paint mark on the car's plate i.e chasis number & engine number plate. to make an indication that the ecu of this corolla has been changed.
