Haha! I actually laughed out loud on that one Oomba!

The ECU is under the dash on the drivers side or the passenger side...but usually on the drivers side. Just take it in to the auto parts store, and theyll run a check for you. Has the car been running rough or anything? If not, its probably just some faulty wiring.
