My Ford Fiesta TDCi wouldn't start

My Ford Fiesta TDCi wouldn't start. You could turn the ignition and get a weird double locking with the doors but nothing else. There was nothing wrong with the battery. I took it to the Ford Dealership where it has been for the past 3 weeks. They say that it needs a new PCM (on-board computer) because the computer says that there is a problem with the communication between the computer and the starter. I have never heard of this before and would appreciate some advice since replacing the computer is going to cost me almost $2,000.

Have you ever heard of needing a computer replacement on a Ford? Are there any other alternatives? Or am I being taken for a ride?


Do you
have the same problem?
