I have a 2000 Stratus with the 2.5L V6. I've had the car for a few years, never had a problem until recently. The check engine light came on with the P0601 code. It still ran perfectly, but I had to fix it for PA state inspection. I installed a remanufactured ECM and thought all was fine for about 2 weeks. One day when I was driving home from work it started acting up. The tach and speedometer both drop to 0, then back up right away. Sometimes when it does this it feels like its losing all power (seems like its about to shut off), then is fine again. Sometimes it randomly revs way up. The check engine light comes on sometimes, but not all the time now. When it's on it gives the P0601 code again.
I'm guessing that the ECM might be bad, possibly due to a short/bad ground somewhere in the wiring harness. I found a 2000 Sebring in the junk yard that has the same engine. Would I be able to use the ECM or wiring harness (or better yet both!) from that in the Stratus?
