Customer Question

I know you are going to say its not posable but. when I push the button for A/C the transmission downshifts to 2nd gear and won't up shift until I disconnect the battery and reconnect it. Everything with the HVAC works just fine until I push the A/C button. I need a wiring diagram of the PCM so I can trace wires from a/c to pcm.

I think I may have figured out the problem. Can you check if there is different part numbers for a 2006 wiring harness and pcm and the 2007 . When I replaced the motor, it is a 2006 and I left the wiring harness on the motor and the pcm is a 2007. My thought is there may be a difference and I need to change the wiring.

Thank you for answering !

Your very welcome , The wiring harness should be the same but the PCM programming is very likely different. Unfortunately You are going to need to contact your dealer parts department to check this. I do not have access to there parts listing.

Then flashing the pcm might take care of the problem?
Expert:  Ronnie replied 4 months ago.

That sure is a good possibility and I would consider doing so.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
It would not take re-programing. It won't even start now. Can a used one be re-programed if it is for a Saturn vue 3.5l v6 like mine? Only with a different vin in it?
Expert:  Ronnie replied 4 months ago.

In most cases it can be programmed even used but if your is not taking a flash then its likely defective. That the biggest reason used units are never used because there is often time a programming conflict.

The tech said he will try to program them. A new one is 800.00 One of them I have is the one that came with the motor. It came out of a wreck. It should be ok I HOPE !
Expert:  Ronnie replied 4 months ago.

I would go with that one and hopefully that will do the trick.
