Icon5 Auto Tranny PCM crap

So the dealership tells me my tranny is out. I believe them. They also tell me that my PCM is bad because some how my floor board was full of water and they claim that it is soaked and has shorted out. I need a few questions answered please.

1. Where is the PCM located in the 5th gen?

2. Is this plausable?

3. Does anyone have one for sell for cheap?

4. IF I get a different one from someone on here, will it have to be flashed?

Re: Auto Tranny PCM crap

the power control module is located next to the engine control module passenger side floor board area, it is held there by a bracket plate looking thing. i think it was 10mm bolts holding it in.

i guess it could happen with the water damage, but how did water get there? were you 4 wheelin in a swamp or something??? sounds like the dealer is just trying to sell you a part bro.
not sure if the unit would have to be flashed dont think so

hope that was a little bit helpful at least
i would recommend you to do the 5 speed swap. unless your going to get the tranny from the dealer for a small fortune! if you buy a used one make sure it has low miles these trannys are so problematic
i did my 5 speed swap for around a grand i love it

Re: Auto Tranny PCM crap

I would love to do a swap. i can't seem to find all the parts though. There isn't a salvage yard within 2-- miles of here that has a prelude, especially a 5spd or even an accord with the right 5spd. I just got a tranny for 650 that has 100k on it. I saw the car it came out of and the motor it was hooked up to, both looked pretty nice, most likely well taken care of. He was doing a 5spd swap. Lucky bastard. LOL
