TS 6 Position issue.

Hey guys! I have a 97 psd and I bought the ts 6 position, i went to install it and my wait to start light stayed on and it wouldnt start but it would turn over. So come to find out i have the correct burnt tuner but my truck is California coded. TS said to send it back so the can re-burn it for california codes. But I heard I can get my computer flashed so I dont have california codes. Is this true? If so what difference will it make, and what are the chances of me losing info like my milage? Would it be a good idea to get my computer flashed or to send the tuner back to TS and get it re-burnt?


Thanks Guys!

PCM removal help!

JTM,

I've got to be the dumbest guys on this forum. I also bought the TS6 tuner for my '97 PSD. I cannot get the PCM out of the truck. I took half the truck and interior apart and the darn thing does not have anywhere to go. I do not have the black plastic housing like mist say and it's tucked between the outter wheel well and some heavy alum. bracket with small opening. No way its coming out the back and not out the front! I can see it, I can move it but no way to get it out of the truck. How did you do your?
Thanks,
MV

To the op, do not reflash your pcm, your cali model is wired differently than the 49 state truck, you have split shot and not single **** injectors, and your glow plug wiring is different as well as the relay, get your chip re flashed for the truck.

Bait Weller, to remove your pcm simply pull the inner fender from rite there cab side, pull it out as much as you can, and pull your pcm that way. Very easy to do, good luck

To the JTM9597:
As stated above the '97 had different injectors that require a different timing set then the single shots (10* different and two pulses per injection stroke). The harness is the same as earlier PSD BUT 4 or 6 of the pins are in a different location so our PCM's are rare and really expensive if you pop one. I'm on my third at $1100 a piece. Get your TS reburned.

To NorCalPSD925:
If your talking about your '96 you'll be fine as you have single shots.

To baitweller:
351fifty, sorry bud but I think your mixing your computers. baitweller, 351fifty's instructions are for the IPC not the PCM. Under the hood look at the brake booster from next to your drivers door. Between you and the booster is a vertical engine wiring harness connector on the firewall, about 5" tall and 1.5" wide. That harness connects to the PCM and holds it into the firewall. Undo the couple bolts, I think they're metric, pull off the harness and slide the PCM toward the fuse pannel. I had to remove some sound dampening on top of the inner fender but it pulls out pretty easy.

To JTM9597 and baitweller:
Sand and clean the gold pins carefully and completely on both sides BEFORE your first chip install or it will pop your PCM. After the first install you can then access your chip by pulling the parking brake and the plastic kick panel.

'96 huh, what is the manufacture date in the door sticker? Absolutely not calling you a liar just asking for my future reference. Wondering if its a late '96 that got the new set-up early. I catalog everything. Probably my Aspergers

PCM removal help!

351,

Sorry but I don't understand. Am I pulling the PCM out the front, under the hood or "back" from inside the cab? I removed the parking barke assbly and found a thick cast alum bracket with small openings. I can see and touch the PCM but no room to pull back as it hits the bracket. No room to push out the front as it hits the left inner fender well. the alum bracket where the parking brake attaches seems to hold up the whole dash! I tried to push it aside but moved the whole, heavy dash above. I must be missing something obvious as everyone says its easy and take 30 min. to install. 4 hrs, bleeding knuckles and 5 cramps later all I hade was a mess of parts on the floor and wondering if Ford built the truck around the PCM box.
PS - I do not have the black plastic case/holder everyone else seems to have. My PCM sits on a sheet mtl carriage that attaches onto the firewall. That carriage has a bent lip at the back to keep the PCM in place. Sorry for the long-winded explanation but I just want to make sure someone has a similar condition. 1997 PSD crew-cab dually stock.
thank you all very much, I sincerely appreciate all the help.
MV

The PCM comes out the engine bay. Please take and post a picture of the space between your brake booster and inner fender (wide shot so we can see the area around it) and I'll use your shot to help you get it out. My '97 also has the metal tray.

if you dont clean the contacts on the pcm very well the truck wil not start.
i had this issue when i installed my ts chip. clean them so almost all the brass is showing through. you have to make sure to get all the silicone off.
