Vladgmru :

Do you understand me?

JACUSTOMER-sg8qoo4f- :

my problem is i m suitch my pt cruiser PCM by order pt cruier after put bake the car can not run the engine turn no spark (yes i do)

JACUSTOMER-sg8qoo4f- :

i want you tell how to reset the PCM ,to make it run

Vladgmru :

As I understand you changed your PCM and now you car won't start. If this is correct, then the problem could be caused by your anti-theft system. You will need to program your ignition key into the new PCM. You will need a DRB III scan tool and a PIN code for your vehicle. PIN code is only available for dealers. If it is a used PCM from another car, then you probably can't adapt it for your car. Anyway, if you have DRB III and PIN code, you can try to program your key into the used PCM.

JACUSTOMER-sg8qoo4f- :

yes this is the main problem i have bring the key with PCM to dealer this is your suggestion or i can find DRB III and pin code tell me where i can buy it

JACUSTOMER-sg8qoo4f- :

any way thank you very much for your help

Vladgmru :

No, you can't just bring your PCM and key to a dealer. They need your car in order to carry out this procedure. A DRBIII scan tool is a quite expensive equipment and I do not think you are going to buy it just for one work. Anyway, try Ebay. As I said before, PIN code is only available to dealers. It is not public information.
