2001 Dodge Caravan V6 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 52000 miles
Hi, I recently took my car to be diagnosed from having a check engine light on, and the small company that I took it to, said that when they put it on the computer it had a code of.P0601 which translated to Powertrain Controller Module Failure. They did not give me a printout of their findings and really seemed kind of shady to me, so I'm not really sure what to think. I'm curious to know if the computer can be reprogrammed and that may fix the problem( I read online that there had been a few recalls for dodge caravans about something with the pcm, and basically all they had to do was reprogram it to fix it. So I am wondering if that might be an option), or does it absolutely have to be replaced, which is a quite costly procedure. Also how does a PCM go bad and is it a very common problem?
