Does the scan tool display the same DTC?

YES, replace and program the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). Perform the WCM system verification.

NO, the repair is complete.

Step 4. Intermittent

Turn the ignition off.

Note: Check for the following conditions:
  • Visually inspect the related wiring harness. Look for any chafed, pierced, pinched, or partially broken wires.
