sounds like you may have a problem with your pcm

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
What is that
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I tested my switch and it's good
Expert:  cloe0626 replied 5 months ago.

the pcm controls most of the electronic components in the vehicle you have to many things happening at once for them not to be connected the pcm is the common part that would cause all of these problems

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I disconnected the battery for a few minutes it didn't work I will probably have to get a new one what do you think?
