Question about Cars & Trucks

No Engine Crank Or No Engine Start Due To Electronic Lockup Of The WCM / SKREEM

2. Turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position, and power up the StarSCAN®.

4. If the no crank / no start condition is present, and the WCM is “off bus”, then reset the
WCM by temporarily removing the IOD fuse (with the key out of the ignition switch),
wait for 10 seconds and then reinstall the IOD fuse.
5. With the IOD fuse reset having been performed, verify that the vehicle will now crank,
start, and run.

number of the WCM is earlier than the part number of the WCM listed in the part
reference table in the Service Bulletin Parts Required Section below, then perform the
