Thumbs down PCM 2006 PT CRUISER TURBO - DRAMA!

I was advised by two different mechanics that I need to replace the PCM. However, the PCM for the 2006 Turbo model is out of stock everywhere and there is a waiting list on dealer which is charging more than 1000 bucks.

All other years... 2003, 2004, 2005, 2007 and so on, there are infinity quantity of PCMs on ebay and other sites. Except 2006

What hell chryler did with 2006 model ? If there is a waiting list it is obvious they did something very wrong..

How I will get a PCM for my car now ??????

Both checked the code. They also tried to find the PCM for me and same problem... only in the dealer, waiting list and a rip off.

Does your car have ABS or not and is it an automatic? I sold a dealer replacement with low miles on ebay a few weeks ago for $250. It is for an automatic GT that has ABS. A PCM reseller bought it and promptly listed it for $1300. They have it on "sale" right now for $975! I didn't know those 06 GT PCMs were like gold or I would have priced it higher! lol

Good grief! I think I'll go to some junkyards Saturday and see if I can find a few 06 PT's and yank the PCM's. That is, if they haven't been yanked yet.

Can another model year be modified to work with something like HPTuners?

You could try having yours repaired. I've had my 2004 repaired twice now for little over $120 each time.

What is the problem you are having with it?

The problem sometimes I can see the engine light and the car does not shift. However, if I turn off and turn on, then the transmittion shifts ... Where do you send your PCM to repair?

I have no insight into why that might be happening from the computer, but the TCM is in the ECU in 06's from what I understand, so your problem could lie there like they said. Can you get a scanner and pull the codes yourself and post them here? Someone might be able to tell you what they mean.

As for the computer, I've damaged my 2004 ECU twice and sent it off both times to a company I found on Ebay called SIA electronics in Illinois. Here's is direct link to their page for an 06 computer repair: Chrysler PT Cruiser ECM ECU Engine Computer Repair & Return Chrysler ECM Repair | eBay

There is another company on eBay that apparently does the same thing, but I just happened to use these guys successfully so I'm happy with their service. I even saved a few more bucks making a "best offer" for the repair, which they accepted. At the very least they can test the device and tell you if it's the problem
