Hello, welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is*****'m a Certified Auto Technician with 30+ years experience. I will do my best to assist you. please keep in mind that I may need to ask questions of you before I can answer. When you reply please feel free to add as much detailed information as possible pertaining to your concern.

Have you used an ohm meter to test the wiring? If the wiring tests out good then you will nee to REPLACE the PCM. Another good way to test the wiring is by using a 35 watt or greater headlamp bulb to "Load Test" the wires. If they fail the load test you will need to repair the wires as necessary. Let me find the diagnostic procedure for you so that you can test the wiring before condemning the PCM...

Thank you,

Robert
