first of all, you need to have the ecm flashed before installing or it will not start.
put your old one back on.
this code is complicated as you need a shop with experience on the 5.9 to pinpoint the failure. it may or may not be the pcm. there are several modules that need to work to make this system come on line.
a standard scanner such as snap on are not factory scanners that are much more precise in doing the diagnostics.

you are better off letting a shop check this for you.
