Programming PCM/ECM on 2000 Chrysler LHS

I have confirmed the PCM or ECM (I have heard it called both) is bad. I am getting two different stories concerning buying a used one. Can a used one be reprogrammed to my VIN? The reason for a used one is new it cost $350 plus $125 programming and used is $50 plus same programming.

get the new one. re programming a used one usually never works and you waste your money if it does not work. there is no refund or warranty on used parts.

why did your computer burn up?? if you dont find out why, the new one will fail as well.
