What does PCM stand for pertaining to cars?
PCM is an acronym for Powertrain Control Module. The powertrain control module (PCM) performs many functions on your car. The module accepts information from the engine sensors and computes the required fuel flow necessary to maintain the correct amount of air/fuel ratio necessary for the engine to perform properly. Based on the information that is received and programmed into the the memory the PCM generates output signals to control relays, actuators, and solenoids PCM also sends out a command to the fuel injectors that meters the appropriate quantity of fuel. The PCM automatically senses and compensates for any changes in altitude.

Asked in Ford Windstar, Ford Taurus, Ford Windstar GL
1996 Taurus pcm will not communicate with scan tool you have checked fuses and pcm and power to dlc?
If you have continuity from the DLC back to the PCM on all the pins that it should, and the PCM has power and ground everywhere it is supposed to, you probably need a PCM. Before I throw a PCM at it though, I would make extra sure that you have checked all of the stuff that I spoke of first. Remeber the PCM will have more than one power and more than one ground input.
