Thank you for you post. However, it needs some further clarification....Just an update on the Wranglerfix ECM: As of October 23rd 2019 at 6:00 PM EST, the price of the Wranglerfix ECM has increased $175 and going from $573 to $748.
Just prior to my phone call, and looking at the website during the call, the price was still $573. I was frantically trying to check out with the old price before the new price went into effect, but this annoying chat thing kept popping up. So I hit the back button, and the price jumped to $748.
He did tell me on the phone that the price was going up. I am just furious that I wasn't able to beat the clock and or found this seemingly permanent fix to the problematic 05 & 06 ECM problem two days sooner and get my Jeep running for under $600. But at $748 with a one year warranty, I am out! For you guys lucky enough to get a good reliable fix for your 05 & 06 at a reasonable price, consider yourself lucky. For those of us, me included, it is now going to cost considerably more $$$ to get a fix for the problematic Jeep ECM.
Good news though for the automatic transmission owners as the price for the automatic ECM is still $573
This is a confusing mess and as you can see, Mark is trying to make it better. I'll help as well to take some of the sting out of it. If you get a PCM from Mark, post up and I'll give you a 100 bucks off of any of our Big Brake Kits should you ever find yourself in need. The only reason I would do this is Mark has been there for us when we needed him and I don't like confusion over a basic issue to get blown this far out of proportion.
Glad you guys were able to work it out and that you now have fix for your rig.The issue has been resolved. Mark is a man of his word and if I cast shadow upon his integrity then I was wrong so please accept my apology. I never once had any doubt that his ECM would fix my problem. I spoke to several ECM vendors yesterday and only one was honest enough to tell me not to send them my ECM because it could not be repaired. And he offers a repair service for a paltry $169. Even at that price I still would not take the risk because I knew I was throwing money away. I then came across Wranglerfix.com looking for a factory ECM alternative. I was and still am convinced that Wranglerfix is the only hope for a permanent cure. Even the $169 guy told me the outlook on the factory 05/06 ECM was very dim.
I am certain that I now have a chance to far exceed my goal of 100k miles! I am at 90k now. When it ran, it ran fine. But it would only run for 3 to 5 miles before going into whack mode!
Thank you for reading my post. I've spent several years working at an ECM company and quickly became aware of the PCM issues with the 05-06 Jeep Wrangler. In order to solve the issue, our company purchased an 05 and reversed-engineered a working, plug-and-drive PCM. I am enclosing a YouTube link that thoroughly walks through the issues and solution! (I just provided the PCM, Glen at @Ozzstar on YouTube did the hard work!)
I hope this helps some of you that have the issue.
thank you Carl for documenting your experience as well as your positive post!
