You have to remember though that the PCM isn't just for the engine, it's a Powertrain Control Module. There's a code (4 character) on the label where the connector is. You should really try to match that code. The differences in transmissions and chassis configuration as wells the Huge difference in the electrical system between a '99 and an '02 means it's never going to be "right"...

That being said, I'm not really sure it wouldn't work in some manor, might run the engine fine and be a good test for you to confirm yours was bad. I've just never tried
