If from same year it should be fine. Plugging it in should be fine. however, if it'* a spare PCM, how do you know it'* not bad and that'* why it'* there.

IAT ohm test came out to 3.1k for a hot engine bay.
TPS shows 0.10v at idle when it should be below 0.5v (term. B to ground)
Term A and C show 5v constant, check.
MAF shows volts on term C and B. Can't check hz.

Normal operating temp is 112c. Only stats to happen when car obtains normal operating temperature.

Playing and giggling with MAF wires upsets the idle.

Look over the MAF wires. Had a car here last year that had all kinds of weird problems. Tracked it down to a loose connector on a wire on the MAF plug.

New note.

Car reacts fine but only when u don't touch it, ie, no throttle play. Car idles good but as soon as I give a tiny blip, it will rev to corresponding throttle push, then rev back down and sit between 1.5K and 2K momentarily and then sputters uncontrollably and dies.

Turn car back on, restart whole process.

There is a test for the TPS in tech info. Take a look at it. That way you can test the TPS to make sure it'* working right. May not be a exact match because it'* a different year, but should be close.

Yes..yes it is. Let'* blame my meds, shall we?

Ok, so the IAT checks fine and so does the TPS. Why the codes? Is it possible they are old codes?
