I am a retired mechanic. I have checked all the basics that I can think of. I changed the crank sensor and it worked good for 15 miles before it did it again. now it is doing regularly again
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
sets no codes because it keeps clearing the computer, also never had a check engine light

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. So are you saying that after it shuts down it resets the PCM? (engine computer)?

it seems to shut down everything. it is random, I can drive it and it will just shut down. the instruments all go to zero. the speedo goes to zero. then I have to toggle ignition switch to off and it will restart. the weird part is the little square in the tranny indicator disappears until I reset by toggling ignition switch
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 7 months ago

Ok, I am a shop foreman at a Dodge/Ram dealer and have seen this many times before. It is the PCM that is shutting down internally. When this happens, the gauges and PRNDL go dead because the instrument cluster gets the messages for the gauges and PRNDL from the PCM.. Replace the PCM. I am 99.9% that will fix it.

is there any way I can confirm this. I hate to throw parts at it
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
does this pcm need to be programmed when replaced
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 7 months ago

Yes. Using a scan tool that will read I/M OBD readiness monitors will confirm this. If the readiness monitors reset to "incomplete" or "not ready" after a stall, then that is pretty much proof that the PCM glitched internally. Some inexpensive code readers may show that data also.

will it need programming???
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 7 months ago

Depends. If you get one from the dealer then yes it will need programming. If you order one from your auto parts store and provide them with the truck's VIN number, then it can be pre programmed for you. Then you simply install it.
