The Powertrain Control Module or PCM is located under the cowl just under the windshield on the passenger side of the van.To access it you must remove the wiper arms,and all the bolts holding the upper and lower cowl.Then remove the screw that holds the wiring harness to the PCM.Finally you can remove the two nuts that hold the PCM in the vehicle and remove it. \n. under the cowl on the passenger side. I guessed you are asking for the powertrain control module . In the passenger side firewall - on the engine side. You need to remove the plastic shroud in front of the windshield / behind the hood to get to it.
Answer . The PCM is short for powertrain control module. It monitors the engine and transmission and makes everything work together. For example, the PCM will check the vehicle speed, RPM, throttle position and tell the transmission when to do a 2-3 upshift or downshift when necessary. It also logs trouble codes if there's a problem..
Answer . \nThis information can be found in your owner's manual. If you don't have one, you can order one from a dealer. You may also find one at a salvage yard.

Would your 2005 Cavalier's rear right turn signal be covered by warranty The car is 14 months old and you have a 5 year 100000 km Powertrain Warranty?
Answer . \nThis would be covered under the bumper to bumper warranty which expired at the end of 12 months or 12,000 miles. Powertrain is the engine, transmission, & differential. What powers the vehicle, nothing more.. Answer . \nI believe there may be a recall on them. I have refered a couple customers to the dealer because they were within the 36,000 mile/ 3 year manufacturer's warranty prior to the recall and they had them fixed.
Answer . \nDrivers side in the engine compartment. On the upper intake, the EGR feedback sensor is right below it in a silver box about two inches by three inches long with two vacuum hoses connected to it and also a wire.\nWhat is the problem? We experienced white powder in the vacuum lines connected to the EGR Feedback sensor.
A warranty is a. Guarantee: a written assurance that some product or service will be provided or will meet certain specifications.
Answer . The powertrain control module is bolted to the radiator support , at the front of the car, behind the grille.
Answer . \nNo,oooo, I'll tell you where it is, but you really don't want to mess with this one.\n. \nIt is located behind the instrument panel glove box. The SRS (air bags) system must be disabled. The passenger air bag needs to be removed. \nAny static electricity created while removeing or installing the PCM could damage the computer. Oh, and it must be stored on an anti-static pad once removed.\n. \nScared yet? \n. \nTake it to a dealer. If they screw it up, they gotta fix it.

The pcm is the computer that controls all of the engine functions and sometimes the transmission. In a vehicle, the term drivetrain or powertrain refers to the group of components that generate power and deliver it to the road surface, water, or air. This includes the engine, transmission, driveshafts, differentials, and the final drive (drive wheels, caterpillar track, propeller, etc). Sometimes "powertrain" is used to refer to simply the engine and transmission, including the other components only if they are integral to the transmission. A vehicle's driveline consists of the parts of the drivetrain excluding the engine and transmission. It is the portion of a vehicle, after the transmission, that changes depending on whether a vehicle is front wheel drive, four wheel drive, or rear wheel drive.
Answer . There really arent any helicopter "powertrain" mechanics. In the USA the way it works is you earn an Airframe, Powerplant or Airframe and Power Plant licence (A&P) from the FAA (www.faa.gov). Once you have that under your belt you can get a job in the industry with a helicopter operator or at a repair station. Pay ranges from $20K/yr to $100k/yr.

It is the portion of a vehicle, after the transmission, that changes depending on whether a vehicle is front wheel drive, four wheel drive, or rear wheel drive. In a wider sense, the powertrain includes all components to transform chemical, physical or nuclear energy into secondary energy and deliver it to the interface to the outer world for propulsion purposes. This includes the utilisation of multiple power sources and non wheel based vehicles. From an energetic standpoint the weakest point is the first step: internal combustion engines have limitations regarding efficiency, but the "well to wheel" efficiency of alternative propulsion systems are not considered any better. This refers to fuel cells with additional reformer losses, electric vehicles powered from the grid with low hydraulic energy share and also vehicles using energy storage with high losses (some battery types, ultra- or supercaps).  Developments Powertrain development for diesel engines involves the following trends: modular injection, electronic valve control (EVC), low pressure exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), and advanced combustion. Spark ignition technology has focused on de-throttling (in part load where the low efficiency of Otto engines is defined) and downsizing (lower displacement, EVC). Attention to new fuel qualities (no sulphur and aromates) allow new combustion concepts. These promise to combine clean combustion with high efficiency. So-called "combined combustion systems" (CCV) (Volkswagen, 2003) or "diesotto" cycles (Mercedes-Benz) are based on synthetic fuels (synthetic diesel, biomass to liquid (BTL) or gas to liquid (GTL)). The energy management inside the powertrain decoupling energy transformation and propulsion demand is in its infancy, especially in Europe. If acceleration is adapted automatically to follow minimal energy consumption and minimal environmental pollution, performance may suffer. The motor vehicle industry doubts that customers may adopt vehicles in which acceleration responsiveness is reduced. This type of riding has been called "de-emotionalization"
Where is the powertrain control module located on a 1999 dodge durango and how do you know if it is bad?
The powertrain control module and the electronic control module are two totally different modules. The ECM controls everything that has to do with the engine like fuel injectors,throttle position sensor,cam sensor ect. the powertrain control module controls just transmission related components like fluid pressure switches, TCC solenoid, transfer case switches.
The PCM is located on the right side (inside) behind the instrument panel near the shroud
Its directly in front of the box witch holds the air filter in the engine compartment....
Engine compartment passenger side firewall, remove wiper arms and plastic cowls. Unplug connector remove two nuts, plastic cover and slide pcm out. Book time is one hour.
A warranty protects the customer from having a defective product.Some warranties cover damage that happens by the owner as wellusually those cost extra.
yes they are all electric components are covered for the life ofthe warranty. It will depend on the warranty. Powertrain usually only coversinternal engine and transmission parts.
On a1996 Buick Le-sabra it is on the Driver side under hood right below brake fluid reservoir.
Whoever wrote that last answer needs to learn how to type. I asked my dealer what the warranty was and they told me that they can't say. I know when I went in I needed a new 3rd cylinder and that was covered. The dealer told me that they don't know what is covered until they submit the parts order and it will come back as covered or not covered.
the pcm is bolted in the fender on the driver side.pop the hood and look in the driver side fender
A warranty allows the company you are buying your product from, to make more money. This can be the most profitable division of some companies. Consider buying a warranty carefully, in some cases they are the way to go.
A "All-Electric Scalable Powertrain" means its motor controller is programmable. This means that with a variety of different vehicles weighing different weights, the electric motor that propels the vehicle may have different requirements as far as torque and horsepower (Kw) to move the vehicle efficiently The AESP can be adjusted to suit a specific weighted vehicle for both torque and horsepower. For example, a Ford escort will not need the same power as a Ford F150. Being able to adjust this without changing the entire system makes it scalable plus it makes battery set up a lot easier.
Would the Transfer case on a 2005 Dodge Dakota 4.7 V8 4x4 be considered under the powertrain warranty?
It cold be, this a question for the dealer. Their computer system will be have a list of what is covered.\n. \nThe transfer case is part of the powertrain, no matter what the dealer may say.
You can see one end of the PCM in the engine compartment where the wiring. harness is bolted to the PCM . Look at the firewall , towards the passenger side of the. engine compartment . The rest of the PCM is " hidden " behind the glove compartment.
Low plus bb voltage to the Power Train Module means that for somereason the voltage actually is too low. Check the battery analternator for the proper voltage output.
If you look in the engine compartment , at the firewall , over towards the passenger. side , you will see the wiring harness bolted to one end of the PCM . The rest of the. PCM is " hidden " behind the glove compartment
Probably, the engine and or the transmission will not operate. If the vehicle has a body computer, it too will not work as it receives signals from the powertrain module usually.
No, the solenoid pack is part of the transmission. The powertrain control module is the engine computer.
Under the dash left of steering column. If you take out the left speaker by the door you will find the bolts to remove the bracket. The capacitors in the 1990-1995 are junk but easy to repair. Never try to hot-wire the throttle-body injector to get it running as this will blow out the two transistors in the injector circuit as well or the injector. I have an easy inexpensive fix for no start no fuel problem with these. On_mitch Hi, I'm interested in the "fix" 1badbaby
Up till 2004 it was next to the battery. After it is inside thedriver side fender, remove plastic liner to access.
No! My daughter had hers go out at 37 months. I'm curious if this is a common failure.
You can see one end of the Powertrain Control Module in the engine compartment . It has a wiring harness bolted to it , it passes through the firewall and the rest of the . PCM is " hidden " behind the glove compartment on the passenger side
No it does not. I found out the hard way when our 2008 Outlook experienced steering issues/hard turning. Dealer said pump and steering rack need replaced to the tune of $1500 and is not covered under the powertrain warranty. Seems to be an issue with these models and the Acadia as well. Good luck. Jim
If it is like the 1996 Ford EXPLORER : On the Powertrain Control Module ( PCM ) Looking in the engine compartment , at the firewall , towards thepassenger side of the vehicle . You can see where the wiring harness isbolted to one end of the PCM as it passes through the firewall . Most of the PCMis " hidden " behind the glove compartment area .
Under the hood. Driver side. On the fire wall there are two bolts attached to it. The actual module is under the dash but you cannot get it out without undoing those bolts under the hood. There is a large cylinder device in the way with 3 bolts. Remove that. It makes it allot easier. There is also a harness plugged into the brain and a bolt that holds it in. So you have to undo it to get the harness off. Once you do those steps. Go under the dash and you will see the silver box. Wiggle it around Untill you get it out. Then reverse these steps. You have a new brain! When putting a new brain in you need to ensure that it has correct software version for your vehicle. This is done at the dealer using the VIN of your vehicle. If the wrong version is installed the car or truck will not run right.
It has a timing chain not a belt. It should last well over 100000 miles. If it failed and your car is still under warranty it should be covered.
The PCM is bolted through the fire wall. Behind the parking brake. You will need to remove the driver side inner fender liner to get at it.
As a Warranty Administrator for Daimler Chrysler for over 7 years, I can tell you that neither Chrysler or aftermarket service contracts have ever covered power steering components with a drivetrain/powertrain service contracts. Examples of covered components may be engine, transmission/transaxle, transfer case, and differentials.
It means something in your powertrain needs to be checked. -How long is it since you changed, or even checked your trans fluid.
Look to the front driver's side area of the engine. There's a plastic cover next to the battery, and the PCM is underneath that.
If you look in the engine compartment , at the firewall , towards the passenger side of the engine compartment , you will see where the wiring harness is bolted to one end of the PCM ( the rest of the PCM is " hidden " behind the glove compartment )
No, there is no "adjustment". PCM operate with pre-programmed firmware that is not designed to be modified, though it can be with special equipment. This is beyond the scope of the home mechanic, and would not be either a necessary or recommended procedure for addressing a problem.
On a 1999 Ford Explorer : You can see one end of the Powertrain Control Module ( PCM ) from the engine compartment . It passes through the firewall and you can see one end where the wiring harness bolts to it . Most of the PCM is " hidden " behind the glovebox area
The power-train control module is located in the hood of the 2007 Ford F350 5.41. It is not easy to reach though. If one wants to replace it, one must go to a garage to do it. Doing it oneself may result in damage to one's car.
The term Powertrain refers to a part embedded in a motor vehicle. This part is used to generate power and the power gets delivered to the surface of the road, water and air.
That will depend on the specifics of the warranty. You will need toread the fine print.
A job that involves a combination of both powertrain engineeringand vehicle dynamics is that of a power mechanic.
