PostSubject: PCM reset??   Thu Jul 24, 2008 11:28 am

This morning I started my drive to work and got half a block and my gear indicator (lights that show the gears on the dash) started flashing. It looked the same as when I flash an new tune to my PCM via HPT. Didnt seem to affect anything and went right on running, but also has me a little worried. Anyone ever experience this? Im really getting tired of dumping money into this car...this may be the end if I need to replace the PCM.

Did the car possibly stutter once?

I saw a similar thing when the crank sensor was acting up on mine. When I looked for codes, I sometimes found one related to it starting n gear and once a crank sensor error. I let mine go for months to get something consistent enough to find it.

It didn't stutter at all, didn't throw a code either. So..I guess I'll wait to see if it does happen again. Thanks!

PCMs are odd things. I have flashed mine with the ignition off before, and it stuck!

That happened to me too. I thought it was just coincidence but seeing as how it happened so someone else , maybe not.
