Powertrain Control Module Replacement in Albuquerque, NM | Brown's Automotive Experts

Brown’s Automotive Experts repair shops in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho provide a broad range of automotive services, including diagnostic and repair of car electronic components. One of such components is the powertrain control module (PCM). We offer PCM reprogramming and replacement, which can solve a number of engine and transmission problems. Powertrain control module is an essential part of a car's onboard electronic systems, since PCM controls many aspects of the engine operation as well as the transmission. That why one of the symptoms of PCM problems can be transmission issues.

Symptoms of a PCM problem can include not only the check engine light turning “on”, but also shifting problems, poor fuel economy, increased emissions, even problems starting your vehicle. Poor performance is also common when PCM starts acting up.

Depending on the nature of the problem, there are two solutions – PCM reprogramming or PCM replacement. While it is rare, sometimes the chips that are part of a PCM will malfunction or fail. In that case the solution is to replace the entire PCM. Fortunately, most of the time, PCM replacement is not necessary.

At our Albuquerque and Rio Rancho auto care facilities we equip our technicians with state-of-the-art digital tools including tools necessary to reprogram the powertrain control unit. The symptoms of PCM problems are not unique – there are other components and conditions that can generate the same symptoms. So when you bring your vehicle to one of our auto repair shops, we will scan the onboard computers to determine what codes have been saved in the memory. These codes are like road signs – they tell mechanics which of the vehicle’s systems need to be inspected when looking for the root cause of the problems.

Once we determine that PCM reprogramming is likely to solve the problem, we will let you know, and with your approval, we will proceed with the reprogramming. Additionally, any time you bring your vehicle to us, you can anticipate not only friendly service, but also:

  • 36 months / 36,000 miles warranty
  • Local rides
  • In most cases, same day repair completion
  • Free Digital Vehicle Inspection with service or repairs
  • Nationally ASE certified technicians working on your vehicle
