I got a PCM from Intense and now need a CASE learn. I thought I had a place I could do it at but apparently that didn't work out :( . The crappy part is that I figured this out AFTER I put the Intense PCM AND started the car so it'* not like I could just swap my old one back in. My fault I know, I messed up, don't give me crap about it
. One thing I did notice is that I didn't need a security learn and the car started right up with no issue and purred like a kitten. I've only let it run at idle for about 3 minutes, I haven't driven around or anything. I didn't even get a check engine light or anything.
I've been calling some places around here and NONE of them seem to have a damn clue what a CASE learn or Crankshaft Position System Variation Learning Procedure is. I ask if they can do it and EVERY time there was a 10 second pause followed by an "uhhh". Some places didn't even have a Tech II, hell my high school auto class had a damn Tech II. Even the dealership dude sounded dumbfounded, even after I explained the procedure to him. Even after I explained that it literally takes minutes, if not seconds to perform he asked me if I wanted to drop the vehicle off to have them do it
. How do I even reply to such a retarded question like that?! This is downright frightening considering that I see A LOT of other 3800 Series 2 vehicles around my area, you'd think some of these shops/dealerships would have run into this by now
Anyway I can go get raped at the dealership for $120 on Friday if I want, I set up an appointment though I may just cancel it with them. Another thing is that the dealership guy said I may need to bring my old PCM in to extract some info
(I told him I replaced my PCM for driveabilty issues). Should I just tell them straight up I got a tuned PCM and I just want the CASE learn only?
All that said could I still drive my car to work? I work only a few miles away and it'* basically 35-45 MPH the whole way. I've gotta work tonight and tomorrow night before I can get the CASE learn done at the dealership. Exactly how bad is it to run a car without the CASE learn done first?
