My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Check all the fuses in the PDM, the fuse box under the hood. If they are all good, then check the battery connections. If they ate good, then your driver may be right. You have a connection failure on the ECM and with the tech not able to connect up diagnostic equipment, the ECM is not powering or it has failed completely. I would remove it if all the others check ok and have it bench tested. This will help determine if there is a melted wire on the harness or if the ECM is turly done. I live in a lightning state and get these often. The lightning is so bad in the area I am in that we installed cu off switches on all the trucks to prevent surging on a vehicle if it is hit with lightning. If there is no grounding between the vehicle and the ECM, it won;t burn it up. If you live in a high lightning area, I would install one of those switches. It is just a standard battery kill switch. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service.
