Ok. I have 2003 PCM from a Ford Ranger 4.0 and I also have a 2001 Ford Explorer 4.0 motor wiring harness.
I have rewire the 2001 wiring harness to the 2003 PCM. The trouble am having is one wire to the PCM it is


__________________________________________________ _

82 ---------- 1017 (BK/WH) ------------ Check cap indicator lamp
__________________________________________________ _

Then it runs to the C110 black plug to the motor wiring harness to.


__________________________________________________ _

40 ------- 911 (WH/LG)
__________________________________________________

41 ------- 1017 (BK/WH) ----------- Check cap indicator lamp
__________________________________________________

42 ----------- J37
_________________________________________________

But the 2001 Ford Explorer wiring harness don’t have that wire and the C110 Plug for the motor wiring harness.
Don’t have that wire. So does have this instead.


__________________________________________________ _

40 -------------- 911 (WH/LG)
__________________________________________________ ___________

41 ------------ 904 (LG/RD) ---------------- "Generator/Battery indicator, control"
----- OR ----
1017 (BK/WH)
__________________________________________________ ____________

42 ---------------- 36 (YE/WH) ------ "1 Voltage supplied at all times (overload protected)"
__________________________________________________ ____________________


And I have C102a or b plug to the Generator

__________________________________________________ __________________

1 ---------------- 36 (YE/WH) ------ "1 Voltage supplied at all times (overload protected)"
__________________________________________________ __________________

2 -------------------------- Not Used
__________________________________________________ __________________

3 --------------------------------- 904 (LG/RD) ---------------- "Generator/Battery indicator, control"
__________________________________________________ ________________________

Then ignore it, it is simply a feed to the instrument cluster for the "check fuel cap" light
basically if the computer sees the fuel tank pressure is not where it is expecting it to be the PCM will tell you to check your fuel tank cap..........

Is this the ONLY wire the 2003 PCM is expecting that does not exist?

Why are you putting a 03 PCM into a 01 truck?

Because I did a Maunal swap in the Explorer.
