Default PCM reprograming?

Just woundering if there is a way to reprogram the PCM your self.
or taking it to the dealer the only way?

I did 2 programs in the dealership for a GT computer and my Stage 1 and it only cost me $89.00 I just think that when it comes to the CPU you should do it there! Everything else you can do it some where else!

Can you take the PCM and the key to the dealer without it being in the car?
This is all new to me because I never had any dealings with this sort of stuff
before.

NO! They need the car there so they can do the update on your CPU of what ever new software they have for your car and if it is auto then they will update the software for it too!

I had to replace my old PCM with another one, and the new one needs to
be reprogramed

They need to program your VIN and mileage. The dealer can do that. The pcm doesn't need to be in your car.

If you can find someone with a starscan tool they can program it for you. Problem is they are $3,000 and up for a used one so most garages won't have these unless its a chrysler shop.

So...dealer is the best best.
