Yes it very well could, and no your not SOL, if you can have the truck down for a few days, you can send the PCM to me and I can resolder the contacts, or you can find a computer repair place that repairs mother boards, and they can build the contacts back up for you, its not real hard to do, but if you have never done it, I wouldn't recommend experimenting.
