Default Need new PCM

After being told by our mechanic, reading the fault codes, and seeing similar stories here, it looks like I need a new PCM in our '06 PT Cruiser. I tried looking for the procedure in the How To area but didn't see one. Looking around online it seems pretty straight forward, but after it is installed, is there a certain procedure to have the PCM "learn" the car or something? Also, any recommendations on where to buy or not to buy one?


Edit: Actually now I'm seeing places that say "just plug it in and go". Is that true?

Three words - "Auto Computer Exchange"

These are great folks. They have great prices and a lifetime warranty. You can't be that.

You send them the model number off your PCM and your VIN. They program the refurbished PCM and then when it comes it is plug and play. Nothing else required.

You can read about my experience with them here:

Great Folks at Auto Computer Exchange A+++
