Need info on the specific ecu used in the/my 1st gen convertible. I have been searching for info like crazy and can't find much.

Things that will help me are:

1. Any cars that use the same ecu
2. A pinout(huge longshot)
3. Anyone that has tuning experience on this ecu
4. A hug....

Man this is stessful I have so many things that will benefit from a tune, not even installed, because of the lack of a tune... I still don't even know if the e-manage will work for me but that is what I am trying to accomplish.

That is a tough question but a very important question. I can't answer it but these guys might be able to help you http://www.solopcms.com/

I found that place before. They sell PCMs for about everything including the JXI for $249, all rebuilt and flashed and no exchange. That's their whole business. They may know a lot about tuning these PCM's or may know who does know how to tune them.

You're question is a super important one. :yeahthat:

white97bring,

The two solutions to your problem are contained in the same book. However, getting the information from that book is going to be the real trick or tricks.

1. Purchase a 1997 Chrysler Factory Service Manual from some source. My 99 FSM has pages of pinouts of all the connectors on the car.

2. Hope that one of our 97 Sebring owners here has the FSM for their car and can scan the pages for you.

It might help in your search if you refer to it the same way that Chrysler refers to it. On my 99 there are three modules that control the electronics. The BCM (Body Control Module), TCM (Transmission Control Module) and the one I think you are really looking for, the PCM (Powertrain Control Module).

I'd be happy to scan my 99 FSM pages but there was a change in PCM's between 97 and 99.

Good luck.

Yes, by ecu I mean pcm. Anyone have the pcm pinout? (I think I should change the title of the post to that.) If not.....

What is a good source for the fsm? Might as well just buy the damn thing if it has ALL of the cars pinouts it would be what I need.

Here is the PCM connector pinout from the '97 factory manual (will add to gallery and update shortly). If you need additional info, let me know.

I second Bandaide's recommendation to get a manual if you can find one. It's easily 500-600 pages for the service manual alone. The documentation is pretty good.

Most of us have gotten our copy through Ebay. They turn up from time to time. While I paid $35 for my copy, after having looked at it, I'd be willing to pay significantly more. The book is about an inch and a half thick for the primary book. Some years will turn up with supplemental books too.

Here's two.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1997-Chrysler-Sebring-Convertible-Factory-Shop-Manual-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem53e4c9459bQQitemZ360320681371QQptZMotorsQ5fManualsQ5fLiterature

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/CHRYSLER-FACTORY-SERVICE-MANUAL1997-SEBRING-CONVERTIBLE-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem51877ece51QQitemZ350165585489QQptZMotorsQ5fManualsQ5fLiterature

And 5gen1sofar comes through with the other option. ;) I'd still pick up a manual if you're digging that deep. ;)

5gen1sofar came thorugh big time with a pinout diagram for me. Now to figure out wether I want to cut and splice or make a hrness for my e-manage. I also could use help fguring out the rotary switch positions on my e-manage. I have contacted greddy and still no response. Will keep trying until I get it figured out.

Thank you so very much 5gen1sofar you made my life a lot easier.

One more quick question. How do I know which connector is c1 and which is c2? Could use the placement diagram for the connectors please.

The factory manual does not show which connector is which. I no longer have my '97, so my answer is for the '00 model. I assume the solution will be the same for the '97.

When you remove the connector from the PCM, take a look at the face. It is clearly marked with the pin numbers. So you can tell connector 1 (pins 1-40) from connector 2 (pins 41-80).

I did confirm that the pinout of the '00 differs from the '97, so if you are replacing the PCM, take note.

I am not replacing the pcm. Just installing the e-manage, the pinout is very necassary for this. I will be cntrolling my air and fuel as well as injectors with it. When the time comes for msd ignition I will wire up my other connector.
