CAR IS SHAKING WHEN IT IDLES

2000 Dodge Stratus

Shakes or Wobbles problem
2000 Dodge Stratus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 117000 miles

Our dodge stratus has been idling rough. I had auto parts store put a diagnosic tool on the computer and the code P0601 internal control module, memory checksum error displayed. They were unable to determine what it meant. The car runs well while driving and there are no problems with performance. I can only notice the car shaking while it is idling. Its kind of annoying bouncing up and down while sitting at a light.
Any idea what is causing this problem.

You have a choice to make. Either try re-flash the PCM (at the dealer) or get a new PCM (Still needs to be flashed by the dealer to work with your car).

After that, if the car still shakes, you should have a different code.
