yes it will fail with light and code. pcm about 300-40. has to be flashed as well. drive cycle after that. exspect about 600-700 as a fair estimate. Roy

Ouch! Alrighty then - how about getting one from the u-pull it yard & swapping them out? any extra things need to be done? I have been out of "the business" for 11 years. I can't believe what this stuff costs now. For instance, if I'd given an estimate of $700 for struts, I would have been run out of town. Over $600 for a water pump? I would have been out-right murdered. OUCH!

Dealership will charge you 560.00 for the PCM module 95.00 programming fee and 80.00 labor closer to 800.00 when all is said and done
