New here with a 2006 LJ

Hello everyone. I have a 2006 LJ I just bought. Paid a HUGE pile-o-cash for it because it is so nice. When I first test drove it, it only had 11,700 miles.

I'm new here but have been on Jeep forum since 2006.

I also have a 2013 JKU.

My LJ is currently suffering from the dreaded and painfully common bad PCM/ hard 1-2 upshift fiasco. I have started a thread on the issue.


The only difference between my thread on the issue, and the multitude of others is I will see this through to a conclusion. When I eventually get it figured out, I will post ALL of the information here.

Haha I hope you were as excited as I was to discover one with so little use!

It's not saying much, because I'm new to the WF; but should I be doing some due diligence on the PCM issue? This is actually the first I've read anything about it.

Read up on it. The problem is written about everywhere. The solution generally is PCM replacement. This isn't as easy as it sounds though. Many companies sell refurbished PCM's, BUT many of the BAD PCM's, don't throw alot of codes so when they are turned in as cores, they are not repaired. They are tested and cleaned and put in boxes and shipped to someone else.

If you were to read the reviews on the companies that sell refurbished PCM's, you'll be amazed they all aren't burned to the ground. It appears some change their name every few years to get the heat off of them... IE, website says in business for 10 years, BBB says in business since November 2015....7 months..... Hmmm... and in that 7 months, they are getting hammered by reviews. Don't expect any relief from getting a refurbished one from the dealer either. First, they are over $700 unprogrammed, and if it doesn't fix the issue, it wont be warranted. ( because the PCM doesn't show that it is bad in the first place)....
