Okay, battery was raised up for some reason and more like hood hit battery? I know, same difference, but a dead short across battery terminals, your ECU/PCM hopefully is not cooked well done.. You can try re programming it. No year mentioned of car..Dodge I see. But for a maybe: ..or a generic re set of the PCM: Depending on the year and model, which is not given in your question, you may have to open a battery box or remove a plastic cover. Identify the negative battery terminal, which is black and marked with a negative symbol. Remove the nut from the connected cable taking care not to allow it to fall into the engine bay. Wiggle the cable free from the battery and set it aside. Press the horn for several seconds to use up any remaining power in the system. Reconnect the battery, tightening the nut until the cable is no longer free to move, and start the engine. The ECU/PCM is now reset, hopefully.


its a 95 neon purchased pcm didn't fix anything. fuse blocks???


Happy to report... it was one simple little ground wire. Car runs perfect. Price of repairs $0
