Special PCP

Hey everyone, a friend of mine has a 97 ccsb Powerstroke. The truck has a little over 100,000 miles on it and is bone stock. He tells me that it has special PCM that was only put in a few 97s. Has anyone heard of this? The problem is that it keeps eating up PCMs and it is just sitting in the barn. Is there a way to solve this problem? Thanks in advance

Check the wiring, and if your friends psd has a blue sticker on passenger side valve cover stating its compliant with California emmisions, his PCM is special, if not then his is just as cool as the next 94.5-97 obs

Second. We know as we have them also. Tell your friend to NOT buy PCMs from PCM Exchange. They are crap.

I'll check the connections. Is there a way to stop the PCMs from going out? Could I send it to say PHP or TW to have it looked at?

For physical damage you are pretty good with taking it to an old TV repair shop. For software damage you could take it to Ford for a re-flash. PHP's or DP Tuner can do that also but they would be more expensive then Ford.

Does anybody know what causes this or how to stop it from continuing?

Generally electrical shorts in the main harness. Diesel fuel is corrosive to wire isolation and guess what...the main harness runs right under the fuel bowl. There is a 99% chance that the engine has had at least one fuel leak at one time or another. Without opening the harness and washing it out the diesel continues to eat the insulation. Other trouble spots are shorts under the valve covers.
