Question 2004 turbo ECM

Apparently my ECM has a problem, it will not heat the O2 sensors. The drivability is fine but I live in a county that does emissions inspection and since the EML is on I can't pass . I've been unable to find a good used one and the dealer wants over a grand. The car only has 95k on it and I'm not happy that it is having this problem. Any one have an idea on what I can do?

Welcome to the forum

I recently bought a PCM for my PT from this Ebay seller, the turbo PCM's are more than the NA:

2004 2005 Chrysler PT CRUISER TURBO Engine Computer Module ECM PCM ECU PlugNPlay | eBay

They program it to your VIN and it was Plug & Play.

When you get a chance please go to Welcome New PT Cruiser Members - PT Cruiser Forum and create an intro thread telling us a little about yourself and your PT

You can try ebay. Is your car an automatic? Is it a gt?
The truth is that Amy turbo pcm, whether gt or not, from 2004 or 2005 will fit and work perfectly, if your car is an automatic. If your car is a non gt, and you install a gt pcm, you will have increased performance while still satisfying the emission test. All manual turbo pts were gt so you have to be careful there. Note that the used pcm will need to be programmed with your car's VIN in order to not trigger the security immobilizer which will prevent the car from starting/running. Some sellers can do this, and others cannot. If you buy one from a seller that cannot, you will have to find a third party that can do it for you. It's not likely that you will find a dealer who will do this for you. A mechanic with a higher end scanner can do it, if he knows how. Syked ecu tuning can do it but you would have to pay for that service as well as back and forth shipping. I can do it too but I am on vacation now and can't offer any immediate help.

Even if it's a convertible, then a non-convertible 2004 or 2005 GT pcm would work as long as the vin was programmed?

That is correct. For 04 and 05, it doesn't matter if the replacement is for or from a convertible. They all interchange perfectly.

did you check for voltage at the PCM terminals where they provide voltage to the O2 sensor heater ? I would be it's a wiring problem. At least confirm it's not before proceeding.

Hehe thanks but one correction: I can't repair a faulty pcm. But, I can, scan, program your VIN, and do an in vehicle test of your pcm. :-)
