I'm not sure what your question is but a 2003 RAM doesn't have a BCM and the FCM controls the lighting.

I’m making this engine standalone for swapping it into an older dodge vehicle need the wires required to get it running mapped out this Ecm has skim disabled...
Dodge Mechanic: -Brad-, Dodge Dealership Tech replied 4 months ago

If ECM has SKIM disabled then all you need is the PCM. The FCM isn't needed for engine starting, it ojnly controls the lighting...

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.
