Troy,tdreesman said:None of the dashlights worked on my recently acquired P38. I purchased a "new" one from a salvage yard along with the instrument cluster. Now all my dash lights work but she won't start. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Troy
Not sure about this but if you have both your old and new Becm is it not possible just to send them to Someone to have the Infomation transfered from one to the other.tdreesman said:I was hoping to avoid a trip to independent mechanic (100mi each way plus a trailer rental).
Good question. I just bought the ECU that matches the BeCM and Instrument panel I purchased earlier. I also purchased another complete functioning/running P38. So now I have 2 vehicles and an "extra" set of electrics. I'm going to start swapping tomorrow and will post the results.jchabol said:By the way, looking for a replacement BeCM I realized that the original BeCM in my rig (98 MY) has a part No. AMR 5628 but a possible replacement is YWC 112210, which belongs to a 2001 MY P38. Can these two parts be used indistinctly? How about just swapping the power board and using the original logic board to avoid reprogramming, etc.?
That is awesome man, thank you for posting that. I too own a 95' and have quit a few electrical issues that I am currently trying to work out. So you just swapped the BECM and ECU from the 97 to the 95 and nothing else?tdreesman said:She's up and running with all dash instruments working and no fault codes! I installed the instrument cluster, BeCM & ECU from the same '97 into my '95. I used the key fob programming from elsewhere on this site. My mileage is different now but on vehicles in Colorado over a certain age it's not recorded anyway.
I love my new ride! :dance:
BTW that was after going through the FAQ's checking the battery, alternator, grounds & voltage drops "finally" determining it was hopefully the BeCM.tdreesman said:And instrument cluster (speedo, tach etc..) before that I was getting a "mileage discrepancy" error in the information display. What worked for me may not work for you but I had nothing to lose and a parts car close by.
Good Luck! :thumb:
