Dealership says bad TCM

Asked by May 10, 2015 at 12:06 AM about the 2002 Dodge Neon 4 Dr SE Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Dealership says bad TCM but according to several parts searches for a 2005 Dodge Neon SE Automatic Transmission 2.0L 4cyl TCM which have come up with nothing except 1 which informs me that there is no TCM in 2005 it is now a PCM is this true?
KEEP IN MIND NEON IS A 2002 with A 2005 Transmission in it as of 2 years ago.

PCM = Power Control Module, that's probably what they mean, but call it a TCM, other manufactures call it an ECM. But do you really need to replace it? I'd have a second opinion on your repair. Most dealership love replacing parts instead of diagnosis the issue, you might be stuck with the same symptoms after the swap. Good Luck!

got 2 opinions but I tried the vss input output speed sensors and new fluid and filter got a faulty or random chasis ground hanging down under it though but other than that I have had a broken ignition switch for 2 plus years.
