    Can anyone tell me where the engine ECU is located on my 89 Honda Accord lxi? I'm talking about the unit with three connectors.

    I know it's not under the passenger seat or the behind the passenger kick panel.

    Hi,

    I found it. It's under the drivers seat. it was full of water and some of the internal connections are fried.

    I tried to fix the bad circuits but the engine is not right. It started, but it sounded like it was running on 2 or 3 cylindars and the engine was burning oil like a fogging machine.

    If anyone has a clue as to how to proceed, I'd appreciate it.

    get a replacement ecu. it can't be more than 50 bucks at a junkyard/ebay. that will eliminate the electronics side of things. if it still is sputtering, check your ignition system- plugs, wires, distributor, cap, rotor, ignitor, etc..
