How can I start my car with a replacement PCM?

So now my PCM is randomly activating the rev limiter while Iím driving. This is obviously annoying, but also dangerous since the car randomly wonít accelerate for no reason. So my question is how I can start the car with my replacement PCM temporarily until I can get it flashed. Will the immobilizer brake code start it with a replacement PCM, or is there something else I need to do? Thanks.

Actually, I put my new JDM PCM in, and it started after I jumped the fuel pump relay. But it's far from perfect, as you will see in an update to that thread.

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

Maaaaybe Hotwire that-- temporarily just so it will drive to get it programmed? (BUT IT'S UNSAFE AF)

Wait....Is this the same car that melted the data link wiring? That might really complicate things
