changed pcm o 1998 lincoln towm car -- won,t start
before showed no power to 1 , 2 , 3 , & 7 cyl. changed all coils % all plugs online replacement pcm pre-flashed from flagship one was running on other 4 cyl prior to work turns over strong now but won,t start ???
I do hope that the battery was disconnected before you put in the replacement ECM. Does the check engine light come on for a few seconds then go off if the key is turned to just the on position?
battery unhooked both post ck engine light comes on and stays with ign in on position
Then you have a hard failure somewhere, you need a code checker with "live data" capabilities so you can see if the ECM is even sending or receiving signals.
do key fobs have to be reprogramed with pcm change ???
what could prevent this pcm from transmitting signals ???
I believe that on that year the module is separate and located in the trunk under the rear package shelf. As long as the security light turns off you should be fine.
Bad power supply or bad ground pathways, could even be the ECM itself. Live Data will be able to see that.
