2001 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 112000 miles
I too recently had a check engine light come up on my dash. I hooked up my Modis scanner and pulled a P0601 code. At 1st when I went to look at what causes this type of code, my mind was set on it being external meaning a short somewhere in the wriring harness, possibly from the battery acid dripping onto the harness. Once I looked closer and noticed the white corrosive matter which appeared near the wiring harness approximately 8 inches from where it clips into the PCM, this assured me that I had figured out my issue. I am no tech by a long long shot but I feel I have solved my P0601 code. My question is if this acid caused a short in the PCM do I 1st find the short if any in the wiring harness, fix it and then replace the PCM? Is the PCM completely toast and need to be replaced or could it be salvaged once the wiring issue if any is fixed. I do not want to risk putting a new reprogramed PCM in the vehicle only to short it out if a short in the wiring harness exists. Please help I need it Badly!
have the same problem?
