SOURCE: where is the PCM located on a 99 dodge durango?

The PCM is located on the fender well in the back of the engine compartment close to the firewall. It is a gray rectangle about 7" x 5". It is ribbed. It attaches using three screws.

It is also located close to heater core parts of your truck. If your overheating problem is related to the heater core, it may in fact be causing the PCM to everheat, though I've never heard of it happening before.

SOURCE: 2000 Dodge Caravan PCM replacement

2001 Dodge Caravan died warming up in the driveway last weekend. Turned the key and no engine cranking. Lights on the dash all lit and completed internal diagnostics normally. Keyless entry worked and the battery seemed OK. On closer inspection there was no clicking from the starter that would indicate a weak battery, nor were there any Diagnostic Trouble codes (DTC's) set by the computer (PCM) -I have a scan tool. Checked fuses and relays with volt meter in the realy center next to the PCM. By by following the schematic (using a Haynes manual) I was able to supply battery to the starter (the engine cranked just fine) and the fuel pump (it ran).

On further investigation I determined that the PCM was not supplying ground to the Automatic Shutdown Relay, or the Start relay. As the camshaft sensor and/or the crankshaft sensor can tell the PCM to shutdown, I repalced those two items on a long shot to no avail. Had the car towed to a shop I work with and they came to the same conclusion that I did -- the PCM needed replacement.

Called NAPA and they sold reconditioned units for about $170 (with core return) there was a nationwide backorder on them (Don't know why). Found an online outfit All Computer Resources, that had refurb units. The unit was more expensive, but they programmed the VIN and milage in before shipping. I had the unit overnighted to the shop. It arrived the next morning and I had my fingers crossed. The VIN determines the PIN for the passive security system (SKIS code). But, there were no problems. I picked the car up the next day. So far it's running just fine.

PS: if you pick a unit up from the junk yard you will have to get the VIN programmed in before it will run. It might start, but the security system will shut it down. Hope this helps someone.

My 1989 dodge dakota is not getting spark or fuel to the injectors

You may have a bad Hall Effect Pickup Coil which is located in the distributor. This is usually the part that I see that's gone bad when I come across a no fuel/no spark problem on these.
Hope this helps!

Have a 89 pickup can not find ICM or isuzus equivalent Where in truck is it , Thanks Scott

Ignition control box is actually termed an ECM (electronic control module) in those days, later changed to PCM, per the J1988 EPA standards. On the 1989 TF pickup, it was located typically under the center console, between the seats, depending on what equipment level you had. There was a coin tray that was used mostly as a cup-holder by consumers, and if you lifted out eh tray, the ECM was directly underneath. Other locations included under the glove box and behind the right and left kick-panels. It all depends on which engine/transmission/trim level combination you have.
