Also you should put your car type, year, and trim level in your signature so we know what were dealing with, and if a performance pcm is even available for your car.

But like was said, give us some more details.

If you're looking at any other chip/PCM than www.intense-racing.com or DHP, you can send me your 24.99 and I'll bless your car with holy water.

Anything else is a scam.

pretty vague there.....youve checked the battery cables....even tho they are in the inside of the car for tightness, and possible corrosion issues

and your sure there is nothing causing a drain on your battery over night to prevent the car from starting

2000? How many miles? The factory GM warranty covers PCM/ECM for 8 years or 80,000 miles...whichever comes first. This warranty applies to ANY owner, not just first owner.

Well then you may want to get a second oppinion. The description of your problem doesn't realy sound like a PCM/ECM failure.

I'd take a good look at the battery terminal connections and the integrety of the cable ends to start with.
