urgent help please, truck died, suspect PCM
Hoping for some help. Driving the truck in my signature, it died and would not start. New batteries a month ago, new alternator six weeks ago. No recent codes or problems... has been running great.
Now, the dash displays ------------ in the green LCD, then when key on, "Check Gauges" and many lights. No clicking of relays or injectors, no fuel pump, just nothing. No crank, glow plug light and wrench light stay on.
Edge CTS cannot display any data, and SCT programmer cannot retrieve any vehicle info (no VIN, no Strategy) or codes (error message cannot read codes).
Loosened the 3 connectors at the PCM and reconnected. Disconnected negative battery cables for a minute, then reconnected. No change.
If I need a PCM, what do I need to know?
The truck had a tune installed, and I have the stock file and the tuner's file saved on my computer, but if I replace the PCM, will my SCT work with it again, or do I need to do something special with it like sending it back to SCT?
Thanks for any help.
p.s. I was supposed to be leaving tomorrow morning for a week of work :>(
