Sooooo I swapped my battery out because, well, it sucked. Then, I went and reduced the sensitivity of my shock sensors because I grew tired of my stock alarm system going off for no reason.
A couple days later, I enter my car and everything is dead. Power locks won't work, interior lights won't come on, and worse yet, nothing happens when I turn the key. Even though it's a brand new battery, I measure the voltage anyway and get an even 12.5 V with no jumping around. My friend suggests I leave the + terminal disconnected for 10 min. to reset the PCM. I do this, and sure enough it starts up no problem.
This morning as I'm leaving, my stereo pops, everything cuts out, and my engine stalls. I restarted it and made it to work. Then at work when I get in at lunch, the power locks work, dash lights come on, but when I try to start it, the starter starts to engage for a split second then everything cuts out. Again, I disconnect the battery and she starts up a little later, though a little rougher than normal.
On the way home I monitored my running voltage, which hung around 13.9 and dropped very briefly to 13.7 when stopped.
Back at home, I go to start my car. Everything works. Try to turn over the engine and EVERYTHING cuts out. No lights or anything come back on. Everything is dead. Disconnected the battery yet again, and she's sitting like that til morning.
I'm thinking my PCM is screwed. Which is a good excuse to get a tuned one.
If you don't think it's my PCM, let me know so I can put the money towards resolving this issue.
If you think it is my PCM, what version is the best bang for your buck? I don't plan on getting too fancy - intake, smaller pulley, and exhaust is all I want at the moment. So ZZP? Wbodystore? Overkill? Other? I'm leaning towards Overkill since I am in Canada.
