Chrysler PCM VIN Programming Tech Tip



The Powertrain Control Module (PCM), the on-board computer of your vehicle, is essential for the proper functioning of the engine. It can detect problems within an automobile by generating diagnostic codes. The PCM itself may fail due to voltage overload, heat and stress, vibration and corrosion. The video below explains some factors to be checked before installing a replacement PCM in a vehicle.












Video Transcript:

 

Before installing this replacement powertrain control module on your Chrysler vehicle, you must inspect all PCM-controlled components and related circuits for shorts. Repair or replace, as needed. Failure to do so and to correct faulty components and circuits, may result in damage to the replacement PCM. Also, if your replacement unit's part number ends with a "V", you'll need to make sure the vehicle specific VIN number and service reminder indicator mileage have been programmed into the replacement PCM. The absence of the correct vehicle VIN will result in a VIN mismatch DTC, as well as illuminating the ABS/Airbag lamp. A PCM with an incorrect VIN can also cause drive-ability issues and will void the unit warranty.
