That is the power train control module. The code is for the transmission control module.

 


The Transmission Control Module (TCM) is located behind the left fender and is fastened to the left frame rail forward of the suspension (Fig. 17). It mounts on a bracket that is fastened to the rail.

ANY INFO ON THIS PINION FACTOR AND QUICK LEARN PROCEDURE, I'M GOOD SO FAR BUT DO I NEED A REPAIR SHOP OR DEALER TO DO THIS
Expert:  brownjeff replied 4 years ago.
It will take a scan tool to program it in.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
SORRY ONE LAST QUESTION..... I CAN I JUST POP IN A USED ONE AND GO,OR WILL IT NEED TO BE RE SET UP, THANKS YOU'VE BEEN A GREAT HELP
Expert:  brownjeff replied 4 years ago.
As long as the used one is the "same" it will work. Has to come from the same year, engine size, transmission, etc. I don't think in this year and model the vin goes into this module so you should be ok. If your getting used the salvage yard should be able to tell you for sure.
