Thumbs up New PCM installed by dealer in my 2001 PT $0...

Well I have been a member here for a while though I don't post here much; I mostly lurk and read... Well about 4 weeks ago I got an engine light. Upon checking the code I came here to do some research on the dreaded P0601 code. From everything I read I was prepared to dish out big money to get my PCM replaced. As I don't drive my PT much I was not in a hurry to get it to the dealer to dish out the money. This week I was on vacation so I decided to take the PT in for regular service and to get the PCM changed. I really love my dealer because when I bought my PT it came with free oil, filter and fluid refill for life as well as free inspection for life. Well when I got to the dealer, after calling and scheduling an appointment, the service rep did a little quick math and said that my 2001 PT was still under warrantee and the PCM would be no charge.... This just about floored me seeing as I did not by an extended warrantee when I bought my PT and at the time I bought it they were still offering the 3 year 36,000 mile warrantee. I remember this because about 2 months after I bought it they came out with the 10 year 100,000 mile warrantee and I was kicking myself... So the moral of this is never underestimate your dealer....

Your dealer will probably get fired by President Obama.

The dealer most likely covered the repair under the 8/80 emissions warranty.
