Another no start

Well I dropped my truck of at the window tint shop the other day. Tinter called today and says tint is done BUT truck stalled in garage and will not start.

Quick ran over with scanner to check RPM. Fuel pressure etc. BUT the scanner is saying no communication. It is a snap-on 2500 and it DID work on this truck.

Went back over this am. All fuses are good and I have power to the OBD port. Still no scanner communication.

What else should I try?

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!

Does it have a chip? CEL on? If not, is there voltage at the PCM power pins (PCM connector)? If you have a spare PCM (hopefully it's not the Cali 97!) you might try it. Cheers!

Man that SUCKS.. I was excited to see pics of the before/after tint job. Thats some sucky news to get.

Also, repost this in the General Discussion area... nobody looks at this part of the forum so you wont get any help.

I would think that no communication and no CEL (provided removing the chip doesn't help) would be a bad thing, pointing to a bad PCM (which sucks with a Cali since they are hard to find). Again, verify that there is power getting to the PCM. Cheers!

Sorry Brad but this is absolutely pointing at a popped PCM. Do you have a local Diesel shop that you are in good with? My mechanic keeps a couple on hand so that I can swap one when needed.

[EDIT] Saw that you are in PA. That is going to be a tough find. PM Cary and he can talk you through the pin swap to use a 48 State PCM but you will have to reburn the chip after the swap.

I have a Cali truck and I curse it every day. There is just so much bullsh1t that Ford put into these particular trucks that isn't known or documented. I am on my 4th PCM and have had it with looking for new ones. As soon as I have the money for a 48 State I'm pin swapping and moving on. I have found 48 State PCMs for $200 sometimes and a remanded '97 Cali PCM goes in the neighborhood of $800 and rising (probably because my truck eats them for breakfast).
