Check to see if we have power to the green/black wire at a cool with the ignition ON. If not check fuse #12 (10 amp) in the engine fuse box. The PCM may have also gotten wet. It is located under the cowl and pollen filter housing. Let me know.

I have never driven a vehicle that handles the way she does. Acceleration and cornering really make her a pleasure to drive. She is my wife's xmas present. And with the traction control I feel comfortable that my wife is safe. Mary loves her she has owned many new cars but this one she named. "Baby Girl". So from one tech to another, I appreciate your knowledge of being familiar with this car. If you lived near I'd have bought you a steak dinner and picked your brain for info. Anyone can buy a shop manual, but I'd rather talk to the person how has had hands on. Thanks you ahead of time because I feel I didn't screw her up to bad

If I replace the pcm do I have to bring the car to the dealership to reprogram the computer?
