PMT2

So, I've heard it is plug-n-play, but specifically, should I D/C the batteries? Do I need to have the PCM reflashed? Or am I worrying too much and just remove and replace? The old PCM is an XLE, btw.

Disconnect the batteries if you want but make sure to keep the key out of the ignition. If you have the key off, there is not power to the PCM. I have pulled PCM's many many times with the batteries still connected. Just make sure you DO NOT have the key in the ignition.

And yes, the PCM is a plug and play. I run a PMT2(with tunes) in my truck.

the pmt pcms (pmt1,pmt2) are the easiest to tune and have the best results. however theres some others that will work. but this one is the perfered one.


i dont unhook batts for mine. just make sure the keys are out of the ign and out of the truck. door closed and no power related stuff running. then pull pcm out and swap. gtg

pcm swaps are only beneficial for our early 99 trucks.
