just came back from the dealer (morries dodge). went to parts with the part #56040429-ah. head them look it up, it's a computer (pcm) $450 and some change, this is information for the earlier post by Greeno. talked to service, they say that now the dealer can check the "flash" of the pcm (computer) to see if it has the upgrade,("AH") is the last revision. I am going to have my dakota looked at on wed the 21st of jan '03 to see if my computer has the upgrade. im going on a big limb here to say that Morries has a very good dealer service department. so lets see if they pull through for me.

Todd,

Are you talking about the power robbing 'death flash'? Or a better flash?

01 QC 4.7, 5spd manual, etc, etc.

Todd, with the 'death flash', you loose some HP,and performance, probably still enough for most with the 4.7 though.

well i recieved the "death flash". I would rather have a truck running right and possibly lose power, than have a truck that stumbles when in drive, stopped.

And of course it didnt work. so i went back again and they drove it and drove it. came back with cleaning the t.b. and buttlerfly, iac.

cant tell you if that helped or not, just that day i recieved a new/used ""jet performance chip/ stage 1" that i won on ebay. $125.00.

put that in and havent had it happen yet. but i do notice a performance upgrade. will let you know on the milage increase they say will happen and if the idle stumbling is gone.

I am having the same problem with my 01 4.7 auto. I just got it back from the shop today. The tech said all the PCM had been updated already. He relpaced the TPS, the idle motor and told me everything was fine. Well you know what that means. I got a few miles from the dealership and got the low idle again (about 500 miles). I turned around and took it right back to the dealer. It is going back on Monday. I hope they can figure out what is going on with this!

Well its been a week since I put in the Jet stage 1 performance chip. And the news on this is that I have not had one bit of stumbling at idle. NONE>. My gas milage went up (by 2-3mpg------which means i get 16.5mpg now on average------,,,my driving consists of 80miles all highway a day round trip to work, not including some "city" driving. The performance side of it is that I feel some increase in hp when I'm passing,(or kicking some kids "rice" cars but)so for me I am very happy.

I won it on ebay for $128.00, jet wants $250 +.

for those of you interested the part # is 90002 which covers '98-'01 jeep, and'98-'02 dodge dakota 4.7.

here's the link.

On e-bay, brand new in the wrapper?

If not, it was someones discard, because it DIDN'T work for them. If your but dyno likes it, good! No real dyno's yet that I know of that show it to matter.

no not new in the wrapper, take it how you want, but the guy said he bought the stage 2 and was going with a 185deg t-stat, cat free exhaust. either way go check out the web site www.jetchip.com they have dyno reports. i guess for me it has worked, im not saying that it has gave ultimate performance. im just saying that i have no stumble, and that there seems to be a boost in power. For sure i get better gas milage. it has always been better with premium grade. but now i get the same with lower grade.
