Customer Question
Hi I have an...

Hi I have an 04 5.7 liter, 1500 truck. After market heads a mild cam. My son started my truck with the 3815 FLASHPAQ Tuner plugged in. I took it to the shop they put a new PCM in. Now my truck starts but won't idle. After 40 miles on it, it will idle some. But only when it wants to? Can I put my tuner on it and set everything back to stock? And go from there?

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

It is a 3815 FLASHPAQ Tuner 2004-2007, for 5.7 liters only. it says H4 serial #1315336!!!!. Super Chips 3 button.

Mechanic's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I also have a SCT handheld programmer, 4 button that came with the truck.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

It will start, the mechanic said, after 40 miles the PCM should have learned everything. He also said I might have to put my tuner on and set it back too stock. I'm worried it will brick my new PCM. Do I or don't I??????

Is there anyone home? It said 8 min approximate wait time? It's been 20 min.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if you're trying to run the modified engine with original PCM software.

Before the PCM was replaced was the software removed from it and returned to the programmer, and then the programmer used on the replacement PCM?
