Hi Mark,

Having trouble with your chrysler?

Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

I have a meeting in about 10 minutes here at the shop that will go pretty much all afternoon. I'll check in with you this evening.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
O K
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

In the meantime if you'd like to let fill me in on what that car of yours is still doing I'll look it over and see what we can do.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Original codes 2101 2110 2118, I changed throttle body, acc. pedal, and had computer rebuilt. The car started right up, but same lightning bolt, ESP, and BAS.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No codes yet, but car only ran 2 or 3 minutes
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
please advise on your availability
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
can someone else help me?
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

Sorry, something is wrong with the way just answer was logging this question. They had it in my timed out folder.

So the lightening bolt is still on but no codes right?

Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

After the PCM replacement, did you have the "new" PCM re-flashed?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Jared, I thought you forgot about me. I just got in touch with another just answer mechanic. How do I tell him that you are back?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I was told by Autozone that it was all set. Plug and go.
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

I'm not sure how to close out the other question. You might have to submit a close request to customer service. As experts we can't see that end of the process.

Autozone always does that. It will run, but it won't run perfectly. By the way, when you tested the old PCM did it test bad?

Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

You will probably need to run it by the dealer for a re-flash. Normally they charge about an hour for it.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did not test the computer. The man I deal with at autozone called the company that rebuilt the computer just to make sure it was plug and go.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The computer came ready to go, so I assume that means it had been flashed. The man at Autozone called to make sure.
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

I've never heard of a plug and play PCM that actually worked correctly without a flash update. Did you give them the vin and order in in special order?

Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

Or was it straight off the shelf?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I had to provide them with year, make, model, VIN, and mileage
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Are you there?
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

Holy cow I finally got my internet going again! Apparently there were problems in my neighborhood. Do you still need help on this ? I'm sorry!
