How to Remove the Computer From a Chevy Express

by Leonardo R. Grabkowski

The Express is a full-size van made by General Motors and sold under the Chevrolet nameplate. The Express is most often used for commercial purposes, such as delivery or transport. Like all modern vehicles, the Chevrolet Express has a central computer, usually known as the ECU (Engine Control Unit) that regulates many internal functions.

Disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent electrical shock.

Open the glove box door and empty the contents of the compartment. Squeeze the interior door panels to release the glove box door from its position. You can remove the door to make access easier, but it is not necessary.

Remove the screws to remove the interior ceiling of the glove box compartment. Locate the computer and disconnect the electrical modules from it. Remove the four screws mounting the computer, and it will slide out.


  • Car computers are rarely able to be repaired. A faulty computer will likely require replacement.
