Safety Precautions

Here are some very important safety precautions when testing the wires coming out of the PCM connectors.

  1. If one or any of the wires on your GM vehicle DO NOT match the color stated in the Pin Out Charts, then you should not use the Pin Out Charts in this article. Why? Because this is the clearest indication that these ARE NOT the Connector Pin Out Charts for your particular vehicle.
  2. Never probe the front of the connector.
    • You should use a wire piercing probe and probe the wire a few inches away from the connector.
    • You should use a back probe.
  3. You should never disconnect any of the PCM connectors without first disconnecting the battery negative (-) terminal.
  4. This is a FLASH unit and requires reprogramming if replaced with a new one or used one.

Disclaimer

I've spent many an hour double, triple, and quadruple checking these pin out charts (in these page and in the next couple of pages) using the best sources to compile it but nothing in life is perfect. I don't have a staff of proof readers or editors (or even volunteers), I'm just a little guy typing this stuff up in my spare time to help and give back to the Do-It-Yourself community.
