PCM Removal on Thunderbird

Removal

1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
2. Remove RH cowl side trim panel to expose powertrain control module (PCM).
3. Loosen engine control sensor wiring to PCM connector retainer bolt.
4. Remove engine control sensor wiring connector from PCM.
5. Remove PCM from powertrain control module bracket (PCM bracket) by pulling powertrain control module downward.
6. To install, reverse Removal procedure. Tighten engine control sensor wiring connector retainer bolt to 3.7 N-m (32 lb-in).


Installing the chip in your TownCar/Crown Vic/Grand Marquis

1. Open your hood.
2. Disconnect the negative cable of the battery.
3. Remove the hush panel above the drivers feet. This is held in with the “Christmas Tree” like push retainers.
4. Under the hood, against the firewall on the drivers side, you will see a large connector about 12” down from where the hood and the firewall seal. This is the EEC connector. Take a 10mm socket and a small ratchet and loosen the bolt. The bolt does not come out of the harness, it stays retained in the harness.
5. Under the dash, near the emergency brake pedal, you will see the back of the EEC. This is a silver box that is approx. 1.5” thick, 6” tall, and about 8” long. It is held in place with a plastic U shaped clamp. Just pull this clamp, it only slides on.
6. Now, grab the EEC and pull backwards and it will come out. There is a metal plate the EEC sits next too, this is attached to the car.
7. Take the EEC apart. You need to separate the top and the bottom so you can clean the service port connector properly.
8. Take some 150 grit sandpaper and clean the contacts on the service port. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU BE ABLE TO SEE COPPER ON THE EDGE CONNECTOR.
9. Now, install the EEC, but do not put the cover back over the service port. You install the EEC in the backwards procedure that you removed it in.
10. Install the chip by slipping it over the edge connector. The connector on the EEC is offset from the center, so is the connector on the chip. Line these up so the chip fits over the back of the EEC and covers it.
11. Install the negative cable on the battery and start the car. If the car does not start or does not run right, it is most likely a bad connection between the chip and the EEC. This connection must be clean.
12. Install the hush panel back on the car.
13. Have fun.
