Default skid control ecu replacement

Dealer says I need a new skid control ecu. ..When he tested it it got too hot and stopped communicating. Autozone pulled code that voltage was low.
$2400!!! Anyone know if I could get one off a junk yard? If so are all 3rd gen the same ecu?
Any other thoughts? Said actuator might be bad too but can't test due to the heat.

$2400 is a bit much. PM me if you need help finding it (make sure to shoot specific model, AWD/RWD config JUST in case), as I've been able to find decent pricing (not $2400) for the ECU, as long as you self install. I'm guessing you tried fleabay and it was a no go lol.

GL!

Great, I found one for less than $300! Is this pretty easy to replace by myself or does a dealer have to do it? Anything else I need to know before I purchase?

The dealer said "skid control", kind of got the idea it was same ecu that autozone plugs into to read codes, which is under steering wheel?
