we need to know the EXACT code the occupant classification module is setting, what your tool is giving you is that there is a code does it give the code number and/or description?

Chrysler Mechanic: bill, chrysler master tech replied 2 years ago

what are you using for a reader, if the light is on there HAS to be a code, your particular reader may not be able to read them

where is the OCM unit located ?
Chrysler Mechanic: bill, chrysler master tech replied 2 years ago

sorry i am at work i just was able to read the email, the ocm os under the dash behind the center console, BUT unless the ocm is setting an internal failure code it likely is NOT the problem, you need to get the EXACT code the ocm is setting, and you cannot use a used one as they are programmed to your vin and cannot be reprogrammed

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
