So I had an issue the other week, stuck in second gear... after finally getting to it, the shop found that the PCM is bad, burn marks on the indernals...
at 256k I am not complaining as it is the firs major mechanical issue I had with this car in 11 years.
Thought it was a bad trans, figured i would replace the tired engine while we are at it.
We got a donor, same year make model and everything. after more testing the PCM seems to be to blame, and just a hunch had me swap it to my car, but i needed the ignition to go with it... so, Now I had to use 2 ignitions, one from the donor to turn on the car, and the original to start the car. Tests showed us that everything worked, we even dared a 3 mile road test, everything worked great, minus the oem remote start I have.
I just wanted to share, what I feel is comical.
Yes I ordered a new PCM set the correct way, and everything will be together again soon!
Have a good day folks!
