PDC AND FCM Corroded

1. I had the dealer scan my truck to find the electrical problem I was experiencing. The dealer told me that the Power Distribution Center (PDC) and the Front Control Modual (FCM) had to be rplaced because of corrosion. The total repair cost exceeds $700.00 dollars (parts and labor). The only problem I was experiencing was not getting any power to the left turn signal leg of the trailer plug. (factory install) I guess the question I need to ask is this. Is this someting that sounds legit or is the stealership trying to seperate me from my hard earned cash? Has anyone else experienced this problem? Can this PDC be removed and cleaned of the corrosion? Thanking you in advance for any assistance... 2003 Dodge RAM diesel Quad cab with 37,000 miles....

dealer

Not saying what is/isn't going on with your check engine light, but I definitely wouldn't take dealer's word as gold. My last engine check light resulted in dealer diagnosis of also a $700 part. I cleaned some corrosion off my batteries, they cleared the code, and I'm back in business.
