It would need to be flashed. This can be done before it is installed in the car. You'll need the VIN number, year, make, model, and engine size.

What cause that pontiac firebird start but the engine in minutes shutdown


The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

I need the reason for the ecu error codes for a 2001 firebird 3.8L code #01 P0601,#02 P0606,#3 P1518

P0601 means your engine computer has an internal error; P0606 means that the engine computer has stored in memory exactly the running condition( much like a "black box") that the vehicle was in when the P0606 was triggered. P1518 also relates to the PCM in the matter of low voltage.

Try testing the battery as improper voltage can cause all of these codes. Otherwise it means that your PCM has failed and either needs to be reprogrammed or replaced.

Do you need to do anything with reprograming a the computer when changing a steering column? How do you do it?

Not if you keep the same key. If you use the new key, you can bypass the security system using the method here: If you want to keep the new key and keep the ignition part active, you will have to have the key memory erased from the VATS system.
