Default Check Engine Code P0601 PCM internal malfunction

Check Engine light came on. Had it checked and it came back to this code. The funny thing is, it is running better now with the check engine code than before it came on. It use to run rough and sometimes wanted to stall when you first started away from a stop. It is a standard transmission. We did have some battery problems a couple of weeks ago. Don't know if this has anything to do with it.

Battery problems might have set off the code so it might be a false alarm. For now, take the negative battery cable off for about 5 minutes. Step on the brake pedal to get rid of any built up charge. Put it all back together and see if it clears the code.
