    Worth a try, only other thing I can suggest off the top of my head is was it raining or anything as the ecm's often get water dripping down into them from poor sealing firewall. Check ecm for corrosion internally lol. Although ear muffs sounds like a way easier better plan :p

Just ask around at local garages and speak to the old techs lol :p they know way more than any college tutor.
