I have a 2002 Ford Escape XLT. It cranks but won't start. This occured about 1 yr ago. The mechanic that fixed stated on the receipt the the PCM was reset. How do you reset the PCM.

Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.


The PCM can be reset with a scan tool and or if you do not have a Scan tool you can reset it (clear the codes ) by removing the positive battery cable for 10 minutes.
