    I have a 1999 Ford F250 Super Duty 4x4 and it shifts hard and the overdrive light flashes on and off while driving. Can anyone tell me if it is the TCM or the PCM.

At stop sign, my transmission was shaking.

Read the code, replace the part, No diagnostics done. Check the sensor, check wiring, and check the PCM/TCM. Most likely, you replaced a good part. Your mechanic should have told you if there was a PCM/TCM upgrade.

P0 700 and a po 602

602 is a microprocessor and/or a programming issue with the PCM. 700 is a generic code for a transmission problem. This one could be caused by the 602 code. Basically to fix this, you have to have the PCM reprogrammed first, then if the code comes up again, the PCM has to be replaced and programmed to your truck. Then if you still have a transmission code, it will have to be addressed. Shop shops can do this work. Much cheaper than a dealer.

My 2003 Lincnoln Ls has tranny problems! It's

No reason to replace a PCM behind the glove box

I have the same car, a 2004 V8

I replaced the One & only solenoid pressure control pack on mine

Having owned a trans shop in New Jersey years ago, I find your remarks
rather harsh

If they rebuilt the unit correctly , it should be fine & it should not have failed in 8 years,
if you changed the fluid every 30,000 miles, then what happened & why?

What were you told & why are you not back there?

Were updates done on the trans to correct the original problem
or any mention of a dealer flashing updates into the pcm?

Engine will crank but will not start 2003 pontiac grand am

Had same problem with two different 03 Grand Ams with 3.4 engines. Had to replace and reprogram the PCM on both vehicles. Both are now working fine. The repair is not something even any shop can do. Replacing the PCM is no problem. It is located just above your left foot when sitting in the drivers seat. Reprograming must be done using a Tech II scanner, which very few shops have. It may have to go to the dealer.

My friend has an 05 Ford Escape. His mechanic claims that 3 coil packs were bad, now is saying the ecu is bad. The mechanic claims the only one that can program the new computer is Ford. is this correcy?

in most cases reprograming the pcm is a dealer thing unless you can find a shop that can but highly unlikly most shops dont have this equiptment

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan I just put a master computer on. Is there a way that I can reset it? The engine runs fine so I know it works but it wont shift properly.

Hope you put a PCM in. TCM is in side the PCM. The TCM sometimes needs a brake in period. 200 miles. If not call the dealer to have then flash the PCM with the updates. Around $80 at the dealer. Tell them you want to FLASH to PCM for bump shifting. Any Chrysler, Jeep or Dodge dealer can do this in 1 hour. Thers a Chrysler TSB #2101807 Dated 10-27-07 about Transmission Reprogramming. If the dealer put the PCM take it back tell them about the TSB
