Here a few common symptoms that may occur when the PCM is defective:
1. Several unrelated codes are set simultaneously
2. Vehicle may not start and/or run
3. Engine has poor performance without setting any codes
A PCM can be replaced when the cause of the vehicle malfunction is due to a defective engine sensor that was overlooked in the initial diagnosis.
