I purchased a new one from Flagship One
516-766-2223
Mine had a problem with the water temp
It was programed to your vin
The part number was superceided twice
It runs great and gas mileage is much better without losing any power
You may have to have your keys reprogramed
Expensive though $929

Thank You. I tried the PCM reset. I also downloaded the Factory AB file and wrote that to the PCM (it said nothing changed), I forced it to write and and it went through the process, but still the same. Is there a way to fake out the fuel level in the one command line?

I see you have couple error codes, I think if you click on the gear icon, there is the pcm reset... will check tomorrow one my laptop
Before you buy a new ECM try this.
I did not and it cost me $926. Mine was not bad but this fixed it.
That reset does not always drain all the capacitors in the ECM. This can make act like a bad ECM. Do this but will reset The ECM to factory. You will lose all your settings and have to drive a while for it to relearn your driving style as you had to when the vehicle was new. Remove the battery cables and put a 1 ohm 10 watt resistor across them for about 30 minutes. Now try driving it.

reset the PCM and drained it. The fuel gauge initially went to E when I turned it on (not below E) but after a minute or two the gauge dropped below E and the check engine light came back on. I force wrote the as built data again but I am wondering if I am doing it wrong , it says executing service procedure but is stuck on 0% and never doesn’t do anything after read block 1 write block 1, but if I hit stop it says service procedure completed successfully.
