Somewhere along the lines of me installing my new Hydra tuner, I took the PCM out of the truck while it still had power going to the PCM (ignition issue). Now the truck will spin, but will not fire. No wait to start light, RPM's ARE jumping up when its spinning, but no start. Odometer reading the correct miles, ABS light coming on. I can plug the chip from the Hydra into the PCM, and the tuner power's up when turning the key, but will not start. I have checked all the fuses, all of the relay's, checked the connection on the PCM, making sure the bolt is tight where it goes into the PCM. I have taken the PCM back out, and taken it apart again, and cannot see anything on the PCM visually that would be any reason for this. I would usually say it is the CPS, but the RPM's are jumping when it is spinning over. NEED HELP!!

Hook up a scanner and check ICP and IPR values while cranking and report back. Hope you didnt fry the PCM somehow.

I hooked up a scan tool this morning, but it will not connect to the PCM. It will get half way through connecting, and tell me I have an error, to try again.

I hooked up the scan tool this morning, and it went about half way through the process of trying to connect, and gives me an error, saying it will not connect.

Check the fuse for the obd2 port, if it's good, I'd suspect the pcm is bad. Maybe find a friend that you can borrow theirs?

I just had a scan tool hooked up to it a few weeks ago, after installing a Swamps IDM, and everything was working fine. Drove the truck to work that morning, and everything ran fine. Actually installed this chip, and the truck ran fine, but cut off while switching tunes (poor connection) so I had to take the PCM back out, and that is when I think the truck still had power when I took the PCM out. At this point, you think it is in my best interest to find a PCM of someone else's, and see if I get power that way?

Yes, if the pcm had power when you unplugged it, chances are something was shorted out. I'd find a spare or a friends and verify before buying one though

Just checking back in... Got a used PCM from a guy parting out a 7.3. She fired right up with the new PCM. Got the Hydra installed, and the Boost Fooler from Irate Diesel. Truck rip's again!
