Default Replacing PCM

Hey i have Saturn 1999 SL1 and i am a 100% sure the pcm is at fault. I was wondering if i could use this to read the pcm and then flash that onto a new pcm. ebay.com/itm/New-MPPS-V13-02-Chip-Tuning-K-CAN-Flasher-Cable-ECU-Programming-Tool-/121527769134?hash=item1c4b9e982e&item=121527769134 &vxp=mtr

BTW this is my pcm: s4.postimg.org/5mq5vqfcd/Full_Size_Render.jpg

Also as a side note its kinda of weird that the pcm is for 97 Saturn and not a 99.

Thanks for any advice or help

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

You need to find a 99 SOHC Auto PCM with the same options you have. See link for options to match. Options MUST match or you get to have the 99 box reflashed by the dealer.

No. The first number on that label is the actual flash code part number and the 2nd is the hardware part number and it is for a earlier PCM(96 - 97). Not sure why you think it is defective but I would not hold out much hope for it functioning correctly with a 99 SOHC with auto trans.

Well the current PCM is installed is a 97 from my understanding which seems rly weird.

Try using a real keyboard, or edit carefully.

A 96-97 PCM hardware is not compatible with a 99 car. I have no idea exactly which flash code is in there but unless it is actually for a 99 it is not going to work.
