CHANGE ECM

To pass my states emission test I need to remove and replace the ECM of my son's 2002 taurus. The dealer has a computer to reset it. Is there a way I can do it, if I buy a new ECM or one from the yard.
Thank you for the help

No, the PCM has to be programmed by the dealer after it's installed before it will run.
