Default PCM Compatibility

Hi,

My girl friend has a 2006 PT Cruiser and her PCM is going bad. The original PCM in her car have the part number 5034440AE.

I found a used part number 5187761AA from a 2008 model. They look the same externally and I cannot see any difference between the 2006 model and the 2008 model in the service manual.

I have access to the Witech tool, so transfering the VIN will not be a problem.

Do you know if the 5187761AA will work on the 2006 PT Cruiser?

If you go to sites that sell replacement PCMs it seems all PCMs are year specific.

If you find A PCM from a wrecked 2006, you will need the PCM, key FOB, key cylinder and skim module. It should start without programming and the key FOB should work. You will need to re-key the doors for the new key and change the VIN.

Hi, thanks for replying. For programming the VIN and Keys it would not be a problem as I have a friend with Witech tool. Do you know if the engine and transmission is different from different years?

06 up is second generation and ther must be a reason that the companies selling refirbs or remanuf PCMs are all selling year specific .

Thats the limit of my knowledge wit the PCM.
