Default Re: Help! Ford Ranger with missing ECU/PCM

The gasoline is very old and should be replaced. Using whatever is in there now, you would likely have trouble with driveability, assuming that it would start at all.

Air up the tires and give them a thorough inspection.

Hopefully, no rodents have taken up residence. They like to chew on the wiring.

Well finally got this old girl working! What a mission! Anyways, turned out that there is a guy with the PATS machine on island. The initial PCM that came over from the states worked for a day and then died as well. It seems that there was a problem with a grounding wire. So we ended up bringing over another PCM purchased off ebay and away we go. The engine is really strong! Thanks so much for all the help from the forum! Was truly amazing how helpful everyone was. We have the series of 5 beeps 5 times problem to deal with now but have found a bit of info on the forum so will try to work it out. Thanks again everyone!

The 5x5 beeps is for the Restraints System (airbags). It will beep like that when the Airbag lamp is burned out or removed. Replace the bulb in the cluster.
