Good eveningWhen you say the new PCM seems bad, what do you mean by seems bad? Also after replacing the PCM did you relearn the ETC with a scantool?

no , i dont think the new PCm is bad . What i was saying is prior to changing the PCM i experienced creep mode and a message to service the ETC. AFter putting in the new PCM i fired up the truck and it ran for 10 seconds and shut down, now it just cranks
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
i didnt use a scan tool to releaqrn the ETC
What P codes are setting in the PCM? And did you relearn the ETC with a scantool?

i would need to see the codes, haven't done that yet.
I didnt use s Scantool to relearn the ETC , didnt know i needed too. I do have a scanner though
Anytime you replace the PCM on a fly by wire like yours it’s required that you relearn the ETC. and if you can reply with the codes it has that would help me in diagnosing it. Do you have spark and fuel psi?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago

i cant find my code reader so i will have to borrow one and get back to you, The ETC issue came up before i put in the new PCM so you know . So basically i need to run codes and clear them to get it to work right?

Yes the first step to repairing this issue is to find out what is wrong, and the codes will tell me what is happening so I can better help you get this fixed..

Just reply here when you get the codes..

Thanksm

What Customers are Saying:

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.
