2004 Sebring pcm issue
I've been lurking for a few hours, seems like the people here know a lot about the PCMs and security that Dodge/Chrysler use.
2004 Sebring 2.7l Vin R; P0202 code (among several other misfire codes), engine has misfire:
Steps taken to date:
New plugs and wires, new coil on cylinder #2. Codes cleared - P0202 remains but other misc codes are gone. Tested resistance across the #2 injector coil - 0ohms (apparent direct short). Replaced the injectors with a complete set from another 2004 2.7 Vin R (they were a different color). Codes cleared. P0202 remains and misfire persists. Used a 194 light bulb, verified that all injectors except #2 were recieving the +12v pulse from the PCM. Stripped the wire harness, verifed that injector #2 had continuity to pcm and ground. Wire terminals at the pcm show no abnormal corrosion or bent pins. I've concluded that the transistor/driver for the #2 injector has failed.
Can I connect the injector in parallel with the previous injector in the firing order without damaging the PCM further to get by for the moment?
Has anyone replaced the driver/transistor for the injector before?
If it's not repairable, I can get a used pcm, but the local dealer refuses to reprogram the VIN and mileage to it - they want to replace the PCM with new, we want to replace the car with something else soon and it's not worth shelling out $$$ for that service.
Is there a member near SW Michigan that could reprogram the mileage and VIN in a used PCM?
