Q:I bought this PCM and picked it up this morning from my local store. I didn't notice until I got home the cardboard box was not sealed and there was no packing material inside. The computer was not plastic sealed, just laying bare in the box. I took my chance and installed computer anyway and seamed to work OK with exception of having a check engine light with code 176 (Heated O2 sensor lean in bank 2) My 93 ford explorer only has 1 sensor so I don't even think that code should be applicable to my car. I went back to Advance and told them my story but of course they wouldn't refund since this is an electronic part. Is there anyway you can find out if these computer normally come in a unsealed box with no plastic wrap on box or computer inside?
A:Hi there GB. The manufacturer of this ECM (engine control modules) usually don't put them in bags because the case grounds outs any static electricity. This ECM does show to work for a 93 Explorer with automatic transmission with ID # 537F-ZB with Federal Emissions system.
Q:Ok so this computer will program itself to the vehicle after you have driven it in stop and go and freeway driving etc. Or do I have to pay FORD to program it? Am thinking about nuying it tomorrow
A:You should not have to take it to Ford to get the to program it.
Q:does this computer have to be programed or is it ready to use??
A:All computers come pre-programmed for the vehicle that they are made for with a basic program. If the computer is for a vehicle manufactured from 1992- present there can be an issue to where some programming may be needed because these computers learn about the car over time and change their programming to keep the car running. It is possible that just putting a new computer in your vehicle may not work properly.
