Best Answer

It should be on the drivers side underdash. here is a large group of wires under the hood that bolts up to it. Culprit could be an ignition pickup or PCM. Do you have spark and does it stay sparking or does it start to spark and then stop?

I have PCM question for a 1997 Doge Neon.?

How would I know if The PCM is not working, fuel pump and the ignition is not starting and theres no spark to the spark plug or to the distributor it has no spark to the spark plug or to the distributor it has no juice when you try to start the car. Fuse box is working on both ends. I checked the coil and its working. My car is a 1997 Doge Neon. Start by having it checked for trouble codes. If the PCM is not working; the easiest way to check for a PCM problem is by turning the ignition (the key) from position I to II, do not start the engine. The CEL (check engine light, yellow in colour) should light for 3 seconds and then turn off. If it does not turn on, then the PCM is not working correctly or there is no power going to the PCM. Then I would start by checking the PCM fuse and checking if there is power going to the PCM. Earlier model neons have PCM problems. Only a retarded manufacture puts the PCM under the hood exposed to the extremes of the elements. Honda is better, put it inside the car were is belongs!

What does a crank shaft sensor do?

AnswerIt reads the position and/or speed of an engine as it is rotating. When crankshaft is turning, the sensor will provide a signal to the PCM. The PCM will then allow the engine to start by providing spark and fuel.

Why do you have no spark on Cylinders 2 and 3 on a 1999 Plymouth voyager replaced PCM and same problem?

replaced ignition coil pack, PCM and spark plugs. No signal comes from the computer to fire plugs 2 and 3, but 1 and 4 are firing nicely. The van WILL NOT start, but -- at times -- it tries. Please help. There is possibility that I bought a faulty PCM with the same problem that I had from the original, but I dunno.

When 1991 Cherokee cuts out there is no spark no fuel?

Spark and fuel are controlled by the PCM (Power Control Module), the PCM grounds the ASD relay (Auto Shut Down) which in turns sends power to the ignition coil and to the fuel injectors, the injectors open upon receiving a ground signal from the PCM as well as the ignition coil fires a spark when it gets the ground signal from the PCM, now none of this will happen if the PCM does not get a signal from the CKPS (crank position sensor) this sensor tells the computer the engine is spinning as well as where is the piston located at that instant of time in order for the PCM to give the ground signal to the coil fuel injector or the ASD which gives the juice to those components.This sensor is located in the rear of the engine is a 3 wire plug and it sends its signal from the presence of windows in the flywheel.

What is the purpose of a power control module in a vehicle?

The PCM is the brains of the drivetrain. it tells the transmission when to shift, the spark plugs when to spark, how much fuel to inject, among many many other functions. if it has to do with making your wheels turn and is controlled by computer, the PCM does it. and in modern cars, pretty much everything is controlled by the computer.
