Erroneous Check Engine Light illumination for intermittent misfires can be solved with a software update to the powertrain control module (PCM).

  • When I drive the car it jerks when I take off sometimes and then it jerks when I reach 60 or 65 miles per hour. I took it in to Advance Auto and they did a test on it and the test said I needed a new camshaft sensor, so I replaced that part, and it still was jerking, then I took it to MIdas and they did a test and said it was the crankshaft sensor so I replaced that part. Then I said to myself, I am going to Chrysler Dealer to have them put on the computer to test it and they told me it was the Powertrain Control Module which I don't where that is located and the Power Distribution Center (Fusebox) and replaced that and check all the wires going from the fuse box to the battery and they were good. We replaced the positive cable to the battery and it still jerks. We are going to replace the PCM tomorrow. If that isn't it what can the problem be and again we is the Powertrain Control Module be located on a 2005 Chrysler Sebring 2.4l.
