As most of you kn ow by now i have a complete pullout with ECm and all wiring from a 01 yukon that is drive by wire. I am looking to convert to drive by cable. now i did get all the peddles and small computer and all the cables for the drive by wire but was told i needed to use the drive by cable in my obs build.

Can anyone help with this. I have read many threads about this pcm and this pcm and all that but am still rather confused.
Thanks

All you need is the pedal. Whoever told you that you need drive by cable is uneducated

I thought all 01s were drive by cable (TB physically connected to pedal) and 03+ went to drive by wire [MENTION=6102]Graystone[/MENTION]

I did not even notice that it was an 01 that it came out of. It should be dbc.

Yeah this was an 01 Yukon denali and it is dbc. And I guess I should restate what I was told. I was not told I had to change but that I would be better off to change to DBC instead of DBW. I have every components out of the Yukon. Computer full wiring harness pedal module pedal controller everything but fuse box really. I have always just heard to run the DBC .

Dbc might give u shit with that computer. It might not see the same values in the TPS since the computer wont be able to control the TB anymore. Id just keep the DBW stuff.

Well with where i work i can swap out the ecm and any other wiring i need to get it to work right but i guess that was my main question if i really needed to or not.

DBW is not really a troublesome system. I would just run the dbw
