I just put in a PCM on a 98 Dodge Dakota how to start run for 3 seconds and cut off what could be my problem

I am assuming you installed a used or junkyard PCM into the vehicle. You are probably experiencing issues from a misprogrammed unit. Each PCM is programmed to the VIN-specific installed components of the vehicle. For example, my 1999 Dakota did not come with a factory anti-theft system installed. If I change PCMs to one that does, it will do exactly what yours is doing since there is nothing installed to tell the PCM that the anti-theft system is working. Many shops and most dealers can reprogram these units. They use the VIN from the vehicle and download the programming from the manufacturer and flash the PCM. Most DIYers do not have the equipment nor the subscription(s) to the manufacturers to get this data.

An internal computer problem. Read only memory. This is the factory defaults. These can't be erased by a tech. But can be by a system fault. You can get the computer online for about $160. Plug and play. Dealers 2 to 3 times this.

How to reprogram pcm concorde 2000 by my self

The PCM is VIN specific so unless you have a Chrysler Star Scan tool and the VIN codes, there is no way for you to do this. Take it to a dealer.

Chrysler sebring code p0513

P0513 stands for invalid SKIM Key. Basically it means that the "computer chip" that is in your ignition key which has a special code is not recognized by your vehcile compter (PCM). In most cases that I have come across is that either your VIN is not entered or is the incorrect VIN programmed into the PCM. Have you recently changed the PCM ? You may try another ignition key but I doubt that would work unless you are using the wrong key for the vehicle. You will need special diagnostic computer programs in order to correct this problem. Most likely your PCM will need to be "Flashed" to the VIN. This really isn't a weekend/backyard/part time mechanic fix. Hope this helps you to understand what the code is and what it means. Guessing the vehicle won't start.....

P0702 p1685 fault code on 2.7crd merc transmission

DTC P0702 - Transmission Control System Electrical
There is a code in the ****** control module and need to check harnesses and wiring, as first step.

DTC P1685 - Skim Invalid Key
Transponder ID (in ignition key) is monitored with ignition on. DTC will set if transponder ID read by Smart Key Immobilizer Module (SKIM) does not match any transponder ID's stored in SKIM memory. Possible Causes:
- Incorrect VIN In PCM
- Invalid SKIM Key Present
- No Communication With SKIM
- No VIN Programmed In The PCM
- PCM SKIM Trouble Codes Set

I would suggest clearing all these codes, and drive it until the problem arises again, or the check engine light comes on, and then check for codes again. To clear the codes you will need to remove the negative battery cable, and touch it to the positive cable, for about 15 seconds. Then re hook and all the modules will be reset. If this isnt work, visit your Trans Service.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

I installed a new pcm into my 2002 chevy cavalier and it will not start. What is wrong?

When you purchased the new PCM did you or was it "flashed" to your VIN (vehicle identification number) If it was used or the new one was not flashed to your VIN it will not work for your vehicle until it is. I hope this helps and good luck.

If I replaced the PCM on the 2005 dodge ram truck would I have to reprogram the keys to make the truck run?

If you key has a chip in it, you will probably have to get your ECM reprogrammed with the proper VIN, since it no longer matches the original VIN on your Vehicle. I don't think the dealer would program your keys to a mismatched VIN number, so more than likely you will need your ECM reprogrammed with the proper VIN. This will need to be taken to the Dodge Dealership to be fixed.
