When the dealer replaced my PCM, I noticed it was thinner and much more modern looking than the original one they took out. Since it's been replaced, I have had 0 problems with my transmission's shifting.

I have had my jeep back since Monday. It has been driving well. I am hesitant to write this because I think I am going to jinx myself. Worst part of this is that two dealers told me I need to replace my transmission and I had to make them replace my PCM at my cost when it should have been replaced with the 8 year 80,000 mile warranty.

This was the crap they were trying to give me too. Diagnose, charge, diagnose, charge. It was realllly annoying. Because they wouldn't listen, wanted more money from me and didn't trust the research I did all over the web in multiple forums regarding the PCM. Oh well... I get more help and info from here anyway. Doubt I will ever visit one again.

You guys need to either stand your ground and TELL the dealer what you want or find another dealer. The PCM is under the warranty. I had the same exact problem earlier this year. When i went to the dealer i told them to replace it. They still had to run it through all the tests but they didnt charge me a dime.

Another Victim Here

Hey Guys,

I just bought my 06 Jeep Wrangler X less than 2 months ago. It has 112k miles on it and last week started experiencing the same problems as others in this thread. I place where I bought my jeep included a 3mth/3000 mile warranty. In the next couple of days, I'm going to take my jeep to dealer and check if the PCM can be replaced under this warranty.

Stay Tuned and Thanks to all other posters for their help and results!!

The PCM is covered by the 8 years or 80,000 miles power train warranty

-Called dealership today. My 06 has 112301 miles on it. PCM not covered under any warranty.

-Called the 3rd party warranty company (warranty gave to me from the used jeep place where i bought my jeep) Nope, PCM not covered by warranty.

-Perform ECM Flash as direct in this thread, went for a test drive and jeep shifted as normal. I need to go somewhere in about 3 hours, so that will be another good test.

-Looks like i may be using carcomputerexchange.com Current price for 06 Jeep wrangler is 369.00

I'll report back here when and if my problem returns.

I wouldn't recommend Carcomputerexchange.com. You can read through my threads on here. They sent me a bad PCM. I had to send it back to them at my cost. They sent it back to me and I had to take it to the dealer to get it programmed. ($120) Which they say you don't have to do. The same shifting problem happened, now worse. I called them and they said its not the PCM. I took it to two dealers and both said I needed a new transmission. The second dealer fist said it was the a temp sensor in the tranny and charged me $500 to remove the pan and change the sensor. I told them to replace the PCM ($900) and now it has been fine for about 3 weeks and over 600 miles. The dealer also gave me a bad PCM the first time they tried to replace it. They use remanufactured PCM's as well. Carcomputerexchange.com will not refund my money. They say they checked out the PCM and it was good , So no refund. Bullshit! The person who refunds your money won't even accept your phone call. They just send you an E-mail saying Sorry we will not be issuing a refund and that's it. Ne return emails.

Do your research before purchasing aftermarket. They all have horrible feedback. The name of the actual company is Imperial Auto Exchange. You can read about them on Ripoffreport.com or the BBB.

I will say that my cold shifting issues went away 100% when I got my PCM replaced at the dealer. Going on 4 months now and not one shifting issue since.

Just wanted to follow up on my experience... I too went the Carcomputerexchange.com route. And there communication does blow! Called me one time to let me know my unit was going to be late. Because they didn't write down my email address correctly. After that, no follow up, no tracking info and suddenly it shows at my door. And the same with me sending my old unit back. BTW their packaging sucks too...

However, the unit I did get looks practically brand new. I followed the instructions, wired her up and have been good to go for one month (1,000 miles as of this morning).

Had I had the time and patience, I would have gone the Dealer route. But the "lovely" service manager here just did not listen and wanted test after test. Meanwhile I am shelling out $$$ like crazy and without my DD. So I got my own and probably saved money in the long run.

But after all is said and done, no issues with the replacement (knock on wood!). I am even running it reprogrammed with a FlashPaq. Just in case though I am keeping my receipt in case Dodge/Jeep/MOPAR ever officially acknowledges this as a significant issue!

Took my jeep to the dealer Tuesday for the shifting issue. Took a few pages of this post about the PCM. Where is this PCM located exactly?

The PCM (powertrain control module) is located on the passenger-side firewall, behind the battery. Or are you asking about the TCM (transmission control module) which is the transmission control module? Its location is on the driver's side fenderwell 2003-2004 or inside the PCM 2005-2006.

I have a 06 Wrangler X with 116k with no such issues. Is there any way I can help the search to find the bad batch of PCMs by listing any part numbers I can find or manufacture dates?

I realize this thread has been going for years, but i see the $$ for the PCM from the dealers vary. I just called my closest dealer's parts counter and they said $734 for a new PCM... My question is for the people who paid $500ish what dealer did you use? Maybe i can save a couple hundred.
