Default new (used) PCM

ok so i got a used pcm for my pt cruiser!!! installed it and the car runs for 3 seconds and dies... runs for 3 seconds and dies... ect. knowing my car was incredibly low on fuel i kept starting it



I know i have to have the comp flashed to the car. but now its to the point where the car wont even crank??? did i put this car into a security shut down mode, or is it just that smart to kno that it has no fuel so it wont crank??


and is there anyway around having the comp flashed to match the vin on the car?

You have a security issue, probably by not having it flashed. When you try and start the car with someone else's key, it will run for only three seconds and die, just like yours is doing.

I was just mentioning it because it acts the same way as when you use a wrong key, security takes over and stops the engine after 3 seconds.

I would think the PCM can be flashed to match your car, that's what everybody on the forum says but ask the dealer before laying out and cash.
