‘Chrysler’When searching for engine and transmission such as ECUs, ECMs, TCMs, and PCMs for your Chrysler vehicle, look no further than Casey’s Auto Parts. Purchasing quality automobile parts from us instead of buying from the dealer will save you hundreds of dollars.
Changing a Chrysler PCM
After initially realizing that your vehicle’s powertrain control module (PCM) has gone bad, the first thing that might come to mind is the heavy replacement expense you might have to incur. Making the repairs yourself, however, can minimize expenses and lead to a more enjoyable process. The following information explains the process in a few simple steps so that individuals who are skilled enough to change their own oil are likely to get the job done.
Though the process varies by model, the process will always be similar. The diagnostic code 601 signifies that the change is needed, though sometimes no code is given at all.
To replace a Chrysler ECM, first disconnect the battery’s negative terminal. Next, unplug the wiring harnesses from the module. This is found on the driver side near the engine compartment’s top. These two harnesses are held in place by red clips. Slide the clips up, push them inward, and remove them. Once removed, you will see the module secured by two bolts. Remove these bolts, lifting the module out in the process. Slide the replacement in place, reattach the bolts, and reconnect each wiring harnesses.
Our team at Casey’s Auto Parts can provide a re manufactured, reprogrammed Chrysler ECM for far less than you could purchase a new one. Simply provide us with a vehicle identification number and your vehicle’s mileage, and when the new module comes in it will be ready for installation. You will then have an ECM or PCM that runs as good as new – and you’ll even have some extra cash in your pocket.
