pcm trans issue on 04 ram

I narrowed it down to two things , first being I was ordering the wrong PCM part number , and not the updated number with sftware update , the first pcm i got from a yard was out of a jeep , can be programmed with some know how and exspensive scan tools , orderd the right PCM , soon i hope ups will deliver , they say you can just plug n play , I however know thats false , you still have to dosome tinkering with the program / flash it .
it was an airbag vin mismatch we were chasing on the old pcm , it all started with trans problems , solenoids , trans was rebuilt so .....if this pcm dosent do the trick its going right back to the bone head that built the trans , he didnt do a quick learn , and he thought it was a 4 speed , I can only imagine whats in that trans now , oh and the tow haul , he didnt know aboyut that , how could it be right , uhhhg ,, sounds like hes buying time with the pcm .
