My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today. I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made. We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence! If a Ford tech tried to program the PCM, did't they confirm the PCM needs to be replaced? That person would have had the Ford IDS and software to be able to tell you what is wrong. If the programming is not taking, then yes, the PCM needs to be replaced.__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service.
