i still have my auto pcm in but i have a few lights lite on my dash board...
i have a manual pcm but i dont have it programed to my key, yet.
i also did not hook up my clutch censor so i crossed 2 wires from the old harness so now my truck will start no matter what.
trying to get you t-case to work is a huge mess i talked to my ford guru and he told me there a mess just pull the motor off, i asked if there was a wire i could cross like i did for the tranny but no luck... (my t-case will shift into 4hi on the fly. not 4lo)
that is why im upgrading to a manual transfercase
i dont know about your xcal, but im pretty sure you cant overwrite your pcm. gota get a new one... but call your dealership they can tell you. my buddy said i can go to him or the dealership, he has a ford computer thingy...
hope that helps, btw it is alot easier than you think, i did damn near everything my self...
