Can it be reflashed?
Who can reflash it?
Do I return it and buy a refurbished one for $375 from the stealership?
Will it work in my Jeep the way it is?
Thank you for any help with this.
1. Maybe - You need a PCM from the SAME YEAR and SAME TRANSMISSION.
2. The dealer can reflash it - which is where I would go, they have the StarSCAN tool with all the latest and greatest software downloaded directly from Chrysler. The new software is really the only reason to get it reflashed anyway.
3. As long as yours meets #1, its fine.
4. Maybe, it has to meet #1. If it meets #1, I bet you could install it, drive to the stealership and them have them reflash it.
