had truck towed to Ford. they're saying

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?

Did you re-flash the PCM with a programmer or something? Maybe selected the wrong option! Yes, Ford can re-flash it or at least they have the capability if anyone remembers how to do it.

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.

If a PCM shows more than 5-7 codes then 9 times out of ten its a bad PCM

As far as getting it reflashed has anyone done that. Who does it/how much?

Python Injection is a pretty good outfit for PCM repair. But if the dealer can talk to it with the scanner it may not need repair.

A technician breaks it down until he knows exactly whats wrong and fixes it. A mechanic just replaces **** till it works.

Found one in a junkyard. It's in a 97 automatic superduty. Would it work?
