P060A Powertrain control module internal control module malfunction

Hi, I drive a 2011 Honda Accord Se Sedan. I am having a bit issue with the car. The car will crank but it will not start at first try. If I crank the car right after the first try, the car will start. It does seem like it is struggle woth starting car more often when it the weather is cold. I took it to autozone to have the battery, alternator, and starter test and all was fine. The technician used the obdII and told me it is the computer which is the pcm internal control module malfunction. I was wondering, have anyone ever experience this problem? And what are the solution?

Here is the service manual's troubleshooting process for

That essentially says to either get your ECU/ECM/PCM updated to the most recent firmware, or replaced.

Problem with ECU

Hi, I am issued with starting my car. There are time it will take two to three crank for the car to start. I took it to autozone and these are the issue listed. I also talk to some my friends, they mention the ECU would be the last thing they check because they believe it is a sensor that is causing it. Please let me know what ya think.

Umm, can't read much from potato quality image.

Can you upload something more clear?

Do you have a CEL when you start the car?

I would first check the battery and starter.

May be a correlation/ software mis match error between the tcm and ecm. Could be someone jumped the battery backwards and fryed something. Theres nothing you can do. Take it to a Honda dealer. Even if you changed the ecm without Honda HDS it will not work. Ur SOL

Thanks for the respond. Just talk to a guy that used to work for Honda, he said he would look into buy a used ecu online. And bring it to honda so they can flash it.
