PCM Manual vs Automatic programming
I have just completed installing a 6 speed manual transmission in my 07 Wrangler. I had the 42RLE automatic that shredded on the road. I found the 6 speed for $500 which was a better deal than the $2400 rebuild for the flaky auto.
all in it was probably $1500 to do the swap, adding the clutch, flywheel, hydraulics, shifter and console, and I bought new drive shafts though I didn't need to.
I know the PCM is throwing all kinds of error codes now that it isn't seeing any of the sensors from the auto.
Can the PCM be flashed with a manual transmission firmware? All refurb and reprogrammed PCMs I see online all say they are universal so I'm guessing dealers are blowing smoke when they tell me i need a manual PCM. The harness is all the same it just doesn't use c4 on the manual because that's where all the automatic controls are.
can anyone tell me for sure?
