Default Old Comp Can't Be Reused?

My mechanic (who has had my car for a week now, this time) thinks my computer is dying. He got me a used one (I think) and is having a hard time reprogramming it. I called Chrysler to see how much it would be to flash and program it and they told me an old one can't be reprogrammed and I have to get a new or remanufactured one and then have it programmed to my VIN... Is this true? This seems stupid and wrong to me.

Please help, I am so frustrated with this month and a half long ordeal! Thanks!

Computer is covered by an 8 year 80,000 mile emissions warranty. So, if your PT is under 8 years old and under 80,000 niles, dealer has to replace it under warranty.

you can buy a remanufactured ecm off of e-bay for around $190 exchanged with free shipping or they will rebuild yours for $125. the rebuilt ones are programme to match your vin number and mileage before shipping and have all the updated software from chrysler. they also come with lifetime warrenty
