so i just did a write on my pcm to make some changes. after the write, i waited the 20 sec like it says, and tried to start it. it starts, so the pcm is not bricked, however immidiately after it starts it dies. i have no clue whats going on.

Maybe you have to perform a passlock relearn.

The security code in the PCM may have been overwritten during your flash.

i hope you copied the original bin so you can revert if you have to....

ok so what happened for whatever reason, the pcm decided to set the engine oil pressure code AND a vehicle theft detterent code. i cleared them and the car started. no oil pressure issues exist.

Yeah, quite often after writing there will be some DTC's in the PCM... I usually get at least the theft detterent one every time. Sometimes I get some other ones on other peoples cars. On my GP I always get a bunch of MAP and MAF sensor codes too. I think there is an option where you can disable that code, but I also think then your theft detterent system doesn't work... not really sure as I haven't tried it. I just have made a habit of every time I do a write, next time I power the car on before I crank the engine I clear all the DTC's. :thumbs:
