It started and ran but real rough. check engine light was on. put on scan tool and no codes pulled up.I checked the connection on the PCM and when I touched the Black connection, it died. it started back up and I barely pushed on connection again and it died again. I disconnected connection and checked for corrosion and /or broken terminals but all looked good. I reconnected terminal and again now it won't start. I am lost.
