    I second that I do a fair amount of these also the opinion factor was for older Chrysler prob 96 to 03/04. If there is a calibration error u more than likely will have a ton of codes right off the bat that wont clear and its generally pretty clear that they got the wrong computer

    I did a PCM replacement on a 2014 Ram with my Autel today. It was a used PCM and the procedure was a little different that the Caravan that I posted about last month. This one actually had fewer steps.
    In Autel select your vehicle and then go to: Diagnostics>Control Unit>Engine>Check PCM VIN
    At this point it will read the VIN in the PCM and give you an option to update it. After you update the PCM, go to "Reset ECU". Then auto scan for, and then clear codes, and you're go to go. You don't even need the PIN to change the PCM on this vehicle.

    The PIN code is stored in the WIN. I used the PIN code from the vehicle (not the donor PCM).

    This is a little video I made this morning while programming a replacement PCM (used) into a 2013 Grand Caravan. Sorry I wasn't too chatty first thing this morning.

    I did this using the Maxisys Mini. It showed a failure during the programming cycle, and for some reason it does that frequently since I last updated (it used to do it flawlessly). I find that when it says it failed, all you need to do is hit the "Reset ECU" function and you're good to go. After you finish the programming cycle, make use you run a scan and clear DTC (diagnostic trouble codes).
    Now if the customer supplied a brand spanking new PCM, this will NOT work. You need to flash with via J2534.
