But just make sure you inspect the connector ,get a flash light and shine inside the connector on pcm and check the pins, burned,broken or bend

Spray crc electrical contact cleaner and retest

BUT THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT STAYING ON ,TELLS YOU NO GOOD IF THE WIRES ARE GOOD ON THE CAN LINES AND WE HAVE POWER TO IT AND IT LOOKS THAT WE DO ON PIN#16 SINCE IT IS POWER UP PCM BUT YOU STILL CA NOT COMMUNICATE
