 Description of the problemI was driving to work around 1:30 am on 5/02/2008 when the vehicle just quit running. The check engine light came on and then the engine shut down. I tried to restart the vehicle with no luck. I called my wife to come and get me so i could call a towing service to get the car home. I than connected the car to my personal engine scanner and pulled a trouble code p0607 control module performance. I looked online to see if anyone else had this problem and found that toyota has a technical service bulletin for no start condition. Bulletin # eg049r. I contacted toyota the next day and had the car towed to the dealership so they could trouble shoot it. They told me what i already new. That the engine control module was faulty. They also said because my vehicle had 111,146 miles on it that it was out of warranty. I contacted toyota customer service to try and get them to repair it under goodwill since they have a bulletin out regarding faulty control modules. I was contacted on 5/8/2008 and told that toyota would not offer me any type of goodwill coverage because i didn't have any prior repair work done at the toyota dealer and i was beyond the normal warranty. I explained to them that i do all my own maint. On my vehicles since i am a mechanic by trade. They said they were aware of the bulletin but the still were not willing to offer any type of good faith warranty. My case number with toyota is 2008 0502 0992. After talking to a few local dealers i deal with i have found that they are replacing quite a few of these faulty processors under warranty. Some dealers stock as many as 3 control units on the shelf at one time. My feeling is that they are warranting most of them people are not aware of the big picture. The processor is a $700. 00 item. I wonder how many are really going bad. Should this be a national recall?
