Default Pt cruiser 03 transmission reset

Hi, I have 03 turbo gt auto/stick. The car sat with a dead battery for awhile and I replaced the main engine computer. My friend said if the battery dies or replaced that I have to take the car to the dealer to have the transmission re programed. Is that true? If it is there away to reset the transmission without going to the dealer?

if you replace the PCM you MAY have to do the tranny relearn as the TCM is inside of the PCM

as far as the dead battery goes, just jump it or replace it and motor on down the road AWAY from the dealer

I agree with OurPtGt... I believe though your new PCM needs to be reprogrammed to your VIN... You can use the Dealer or:

I've had three batteries--and no re-flash was necessary.
