Got fed up with this no start. Checked all the regular culprits, nothing. Had it towed to the dealership and they're saying the pcm is putting out codes that a gas engine does. So I guess I have a bad pcm? Don't really have the funds right now for apcm. Can I get it reflashed?
PCM's are like 200 bucks now ....Hell.... I just bought one for 50 bucks about 1 month ago.....Jody @ Dptuner can flash whatever you want on your existing one a reasonable price as well .... What is your Code ?http://www.thedieselstop.com/faq/949.../pcmcodes.php3 Are you sure it is not IDM codes ?
A new IDM was one of the many parts I threw on the truck since it quit working. I never flashed the PCM. I do have a chip though. Do PCMs ever break so bad that they can't be flashed? Not at home now so don't know my code.
No they do not Break so to speak ...but they can have electronic issues...I am not an electronics expert BUT I have hired a few guys that were computer geeks and they solved the problem...BAsicallly the had a old scholl occilscope nd a wiring diagram I provided and in 15 minutes they figured it out...I paid them Well.....thats what I would do .....That being said I have 3 140 V Idms and 4 PCM's ready to Install in my truck Right Now ...because I am a Mechanical Guy...but I do have electronic geeks on the Payroll.......
