More than likely it's the mirror ECU. Aliga typically has them.

It's a small ECU box located above the pedals and under the steering column. Get upside down on your floor mat and look up towards your steering column. You'll see a small ecu box located in this area.

I have the same issue. Is the ECU easily replaceable? How much $$?

It looks like this



It should say part number: 89430-24020 right on the front. ...that's how you'll tell the part.

You can usually buy one used for $40. Create a WTB thread in the classifieds, purchase one, remove your old one, and install new one.

i have the same issue, never have enough time to pull the damn thing out and replace it. O.L.T. posted a picture of the ECU's location a while ago but the picture disappeared from photobucket.Its above the pedals, easy to see but hard to get out. will take some tinkering.

This is what happens when you create too many threads of the same issue. I'll link you your other thread, where I linked a DIY I made, just for you. Post #5
