i haven't but i sure hope canadian tire did since i paid for diagnostics. where is it located so i can check it?

probably in the interior fuse box, if it has one. check the map on the fuse box cover for anything that says DLC. DLC = data link connector, which is the diasgnostic port

if youve already replaced the pcm and the DLC wiring, theres no reason it shouldnt work.

is there power at the DLC? meaning when you plug the scan tool in, does it power up the tool?

don't know if this has anything to do with it but code 21 (speed control solenoid ) or somethinb like that pops up too

in a Chysler when the scanner wont comunicate,the computer is bad,replace it,a used one will work.

make sure the ECM fuse is not blown,and the pcm fuse,also check the ignition crank fuse.

I'm having the same problem. Replaced cam sensor, ECM, wiring harness and still p340 code keeps coming up. Sometimes car won't start. I don't know what else to do. Any solutions? I have a 03 Chrysler intrepid (not dodge)
