: PCM? What now

Hello,

My service engine light has come on for my 1996 SLS. It has 105K miles on it now. Also, yesterday "EMISSIONS SYSTEMS" flashed about every 5 or 10 minutes.

I accessed the diagnostic codes via the two hot keys on the panel controls and only got the following codes:
PC1406 HISTORY
RF2560
PCM?

Now, the "PCM?" confuses me. What do I do now? As the system ran though all the other code groups, they were all clear, ie, NO ACC codes for example.

I have done the 100K maintenance, to include new AC/DELCO plugs and wires, top end valve cleaning, and run 93 octane Amoco gas through it.

Does any one know what I should do about the "PCM?" ? How do I get past it, or is that an indication that it's at the end of the cycle?

Thanks.

Tommy Smith

Tommy Smith From what I've read here, when PCM ? comes up, that's normal and it's asking you what you want to do next. It's more or less the end of cycle.

yeah the "PCM?" is just asking what do you want to do next. Clear the codes? review the codes? etc so there is nothing wrong with that.

Yes thats correct.... There are a series of other tests and data you cna look at by presing warmer or cooler when PCM comes up......
