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.

    Yes, the ECM, or Engine Control Module, is also known as the PCM, or Powertrain Control Module. I don't see any reason for the keys and lock cylinders from the wrecked truck wouldn't work, but it would be better to have the ECM reprogrammed with the proper VIN.

Check eng. light on. P0601 code What can I do?


A code P0601 in most cases means the PCM has gone bad. This is possibly due to a short-circuit inside the PCM. Or, if you disconnect the wires/connector from the PCM while the battery is still connected, that may also cause this code. the most common fix is to replace and reprogram the PCM. In a few cases the dealer may be able to reflash the PCM and get it working. But more than likely the PCM will need to be replaced and reprogrammed dealership for this). The good news is it *may* be covered under your emmissions warranty. good-day!

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi - won't start when temp is below -20 degrees C. Truck turns over and fires but won't catch. Starts and runs great when warmer. Replaced battery yesterday with an 850 CCA. ...


May be flooded = Try holding the gas pedal to the floor when cranking it, this will put the system into a ' clear flood ' mode. You my also scan the PCM to see if the Tempature reading from the sensor reads right when it's cold. If that's sending the wrong info to the PCM, it won't enrich the fuel mixture to start right. I assume he's putting gas treatment in.

Truck hard to start once started runs fine code P0601 shows up and goes away. Do I need to replace PCM?


the code sez internal controller bad--try disconnecting the plug cause there may be corrosion--if ok then your battery may be over 3yrs and can screw up computer--before purchasing a new pcm try to get it reprogrammed--but make sure its done by landline instead of wifi cause of the amount of data
