Hey,
Just wondering... i took the car to ford dealership and fault code for the PCM is coming up. They said to me i needed a new 1. Cost 5/600$

The throttle indicator light flashes up every now and again and it jumps into a rough idle..

Any ideas on where we can get a PCM, wreckers? Besides expensive ford..

Do you have Automotive Solutions near you? They specialise in aftermarket /replacement ecu's and other electronics a lot cheaper than OE stuff.Worth a phone call!Cheers Kevman

PCM? Is that the Powersomething or other Control Module?

Are they only on B-series onwards?

PCM is just another name for ECU, like EEC for instance
