I took it to a local mechanic since we don’t have no other choice, and sure he don’t know what to do. I was notified that I need to tow it to a electrician now who can scan it.

In my experience and searching the net, computer almost never fixes an issue.
I realize you do not have much choice based on your location.
The diagnostic section in the shop manual might be a good resource
I think I read an article from a source that does rebuilt PCMs and the article stated less than 50% were bad.

Good luck my friend

If I recall correctly his model has the PC mounted in the firewall
They sometimes get water in them an corrode the connector
That would be a good starting point to see if it getting fire from that point
Instead of buying one
Just a thought

Belize is not a dry climate. After the change it my be in your best interest to make a plastic cover to protect the connection. Just a cover over the top to keep out water. I am thinking a cut apart water bottle might do the trick. As Dominick stated in post #10 water getting into the connections causes issues. Providing a physical barrier to keep the water out of that connection of the 3 wire harnesses might prevent future problems.

The new computer may need to be flashed. To have the software configured. Unless the supplier can use your calibration number to make an exact copy.
