Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I normally log in after 3 pm central. Please make sure to let me know exactly what is needed from me so I can provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service. Using the link below. you unplug the ECM and OHM test the data link connector pins to the ECM, pins CANL, TC, TAC, CANH. Verify none re broken open circuits. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------On your screen at the top you should see a rating 1-5 stars and a green submit button. Please make sure to select one and press submit. I am not compensated by the website unless a customer rates. Rating only pays me from the deposit you have already made, it does not charge you more, nor close the post. Also all follow ups are free and welcome.Thanks Chris

Can you go into more detail on what your asking for? Are you saying you have never used an OHM meter?

How do you test the little pins. In the wire harnesses. Does this used pcm have to be flashed by the dealer. To get it to work. I have and 7500 dollar snapon scanner.

The file expired from post inactivity and no rating. You would have to rate the post for the link to become active. You would insert a little wire into the connector so you have something to touch the meter to. It is preferred to reprogram a replacement module. Though you cna not do that till you can communicate with the PCM.
