My point is...is that this is a localized thing. The 98 PCM is designed to either see a TCM with is either autostick or not. As during that year there were 2 different modules. Wretched has admitted to switching TCMs. His 98 PCM is now seeing a 2001 TCM that has the autostick information in it. It is possible, IF THIS IS HAPPENING AT ALL, that the 98 PCM is taking the 2001 Module as an Autostick Enabled one, and therefore...it works.
Thats the only explanation I can come up with. A whole lot better than "i put in the equipment and it works"
This whole thing will be put to rest in 2 weeks...when we in front of other members attempt this mod via his "method". The donor car will NOT be a 98.
Now I never said "i put in the equipment and it works" I explaied the theory behide how it works the way it does, you just don't know how to read.
I backed up my theory with facts and a few members also backed me up.
I've corrected you many times in my closed thread where you mix up TCMs and BCMs and Clusters when replying to what I say.
Even when presented with the story strait from the transmission manual you still have to argue.
The only thing in this equation that may be ****ing things up is the 300M cluster you have. It has nothing to do with 98 PCMs and 2001 TCMs or whatever you dream up... I have a 99 TCM as I have said that about a million times now, although you don't seem to grasp that, and keep saying I have a 2001.
The PCM has nothing to do with the autostick function. It's all cluster and TCM. It also has nothing to do with magic, wherever the hell you got that from.
Ayways to the point.... when you test my theory in a couple weeks at Carlisle, use an A/S cluster from an Intrepid and not a 300, I'm betting that's the whole problem. Every 300M had autostick, so mabey the cluster wouldn't have to tell the TCM what it was, so mabey they never bothered putting that ability into the cluster module.
This is how I think it breaks down, If you want to prove me wrong, then do it...
98 Intrepid ... Autostick requires... Intrepid Autostick Cluster, TCM from any 99-01 Intrepid, Autostick Shifter
99-01 Intrepid ... Autostick Requires... Intrepid Autostick Cluster, Stock TCM already in vehicle, Autostick Shifter
98-01 Intrepid with a 300M Autostick Cluster requires a TCM from an Autostick equiped car because the 300M cluster lacks the ability to change the TCM into autostick mode.
