No, The transmission controls need not be programmed.
Is the PCM correct for your vehicle?
Did you try checking for trouble codes?
What is the problem with the transmission now?

Did you check for trouble codes?
Was transmission running prior to ECM change? What was wrong with the previous ECM?
Recheck the ECM wire connectors, link to TCM connection could be unsecured.
