Default Faulty PCM - how to chk it is replaced?

how can i check that the garage which warrants my car have changed the PCM for a new one?

where abouts is this located on a neon 2001 SE and would you tell by looking at it?

also would this cause a fault with the alarm system?

I believe the PCM is located under the hood, under the air cleaner box.

You might see a "rebuilt" or "exchange" sticker on it. I couldn't tell you what numbers to look for, and they might have changed as updates are followed. Might have a more recent date than the production date of the car.

I don't know if the car alarm is tied into the PCM or not, sorry.

If it hasn't been replaced yet, just put a little felt pen mark in an inconspicuous place and then check it after you get the car back.

Im not sure about the PCM being part of your cars alarm system or not. Is your alarm system stock or aftermarket? My mustang have a seperate system called PATS for the alarm stuff.

You may want to take this car to an independent dealer other than the garage you bought it from, a different Dodge dealer and have them inspect it for you.
