bad connections?
Hi everyone, this is my first post so bare with me.... heres whats going on. i bought my truck,99 ram1500 5.9 auto, about 4 months ago. the guy that i got it from told me it would stall out once in a while and get no bus. i know that theres a million threads on this. heres my issue(s). driving the truck in the cold seems to be fine. never had any problem. now when driving at any temp above 65f is where it gets tricky. i was driving one warm afternoon and that was the first time. next morning took her for a drive and she went fine. i shut her off and just out of curiosity i tried to start her but nothing. cranks but wont turn over. i let her cool off. after i got her started i went to the pcm and wiggled the wires and sure enough she died. after experimenting for a few days i began to realize that you could wiggle the wires in the morning while it is still cool and not have any problems. it you wiggle while the truck is warm she stalls. so i got myself a reman computer off ebay(it looked like ass and I'm not sure this company even rebuilt it) and had the same problem. Any suggestions??? Thanks in advance.

Try using some dielectric grease on the plug when you reinstall them. and also use a good contact cleaner on the plugs first.

thanks for the reply namretsud. ive tried what you suggested already. same out come. im going to try another pcm from a reputable company. the guy i got my last one from on ebay didnt even have a phone # or website to his "shop". im hoping that the pcm is the problem since i already in that direction. any other thaughts a greatly welcome. thanks
