Hey guys! New guy here. Finally decided to get an account and post, instead of reading only I did a budget junkyard swap from my 4R70W to a T5, drives fine! (it's a 2003 V6) Now I'm having to get rid of my service engine soon light to pass inspection in a couple months. Obviously my PCM is complaining that the automatic transmission doesn't exist anymore. Already got the reverse lights wired up though. Now - anyone ideas on how I can get that for as cheap as possible? Options I have considered so far: 1. - of course I can get a PCM, have it reprogrammed, and relearn the PATS (need to get a second key though) - that's expensive though. 2. - get a PCM from a 2003 manual v6, with key and key cylinder so I don't have to reprogram PATS (does that actually work? or is that not an option? what's the key programmed to, the PCM or the PATS receiver? they're hard to find though) 3. - find someone to delete my PATS and flash a manual program into my ECU. They keep asking me for a VIN, but obviously, if I give them my VIN, I'll just get another automatic program flashed. Can I "find" a manual VIN and provide it? Or are there any strings attached? 4. - is there a way to "trick" the PCM into thinking the transmission is still there? I do have the trans sitting here. Could I rip out the relays and electronics and just have them dangling on the harness? What issues could that bring? Would still leave me with a speedometer that reads double. I live in DFW area, TX, if anyone can suggest local shops or people that could help me out. Any input appreciated. Thanks guys!
