No factory alarm on mine. I have only bought refurbed PCMs, never any "used" PCMs....like from Ebay or a JY, etc. ( I know they are all technically "used" because they no longer make new ones. You get my point, I'm sure)
The 97 pcm doesnt need any programming. Never has the question of a factory alarm even arisen when I bought them....not from Cardone, anyway. My guess is that the BCM or some other system is storing that info. Zeejay will know the answer to that one.
To the orginal poster, I suggest he remove Negative battery cable, then the PCM connectors, spray the heck out of them with electrical contact cleaner, let them dry, apply a TINY bit of dielectric grease to the female side of the connector at the pin holes, carefully reinsert them, make sure they are locked down and then zip tie each one. Only if the ZJ makes it 200+ miles without a stall or near stall, will he know if that's the issue. 400 is better.
But if he has some other issue that has caused the stalling ( see Zeejay's list and "work" it...) it may well have messed up the PCM. Plus, they ARE known for having poor solder joints inside. Do NOT, I repeat....do NOT buy a PCM from either of those outfits in Florida. Yes, they are on ebay too. Don't say I didnt warn you. If you are certain you need one, go to Oreilly's,etc. and get a Cardone brand. Keep the receipt, for the warranty because it's hit or miss with some of these PCMs. Or you could get one from Kolak, here on the forums.
