Yes, just as I have mentioned earlier on in this thread, changing TCM's can apparently corrupt the PCM. When the PCM is reformatted in some way, everything can be fine unless there is a major/minor mechanical issue going on, as the PCM is really the actual brains of the vehicle. TCM's can give trouble as well, and of course ESM's, due to being dirty, but in my experience, a corrupted PCM can be a very bad thing!

Hey guys.. I have a 2007 SRT with similar problems.. I'll be pulling away from a light at light throttle (yes, that happens!) or cruising on the highway and I will loose throttle response for a few seconds. I also noticed the transmission looses torque converter lockup.. I used to get a CEL on the dash.. I have since done some massive grounding upgrades under the hood to finalize the foundation for a big audio system upgrade.. Now, I don't get the CEL, but the phenomenom happens.

I have a data interface behind the radio to provide accessory, reverse and illumination output. Happened with this removed.

I have a security/remote start interface in the dash. happened with this removed.

I have the Diablo Trinity 91Oct CAI tune loaded.. Happened with this removed.

I saw above a comment about an ESM being dirty.. What in the world is an ESM?

ESM is the electronic shifter module. It's the part below your shifter knob with P-R-D etc. It tells the computer what gear you're in. They aren't very well built depending on the year of your truck. I just replaced mine. Do you ever get P-R-D all circled when you start it up? Any codes ? if you get lost communication with gear shift module, very good chance your ESM is hooped.

Will give you an Christmas gift man... Save your money on the 90mm and just get yourself a Cam... Cam is the best bang for the buck....

Well gang.. Today my PLX Wiki 2 showed up, so I was playing with the Palmer Dashcommand app and decided to check and see if here were any codes in the ECU, even though there was no light? Lo and behold, we have a U0404 - Invalid Data from fear shift control module A in there... Guess I know what's wrong.. Any idea what these suckers cost?
