PCM's are covered for 8 years or 80,000 miles by Federal regulation. However, that is for emissions related failures, only. If you fried it doing something, or bricked it with a tuner, that usually isn't covered.

2009? who knows, my warranty manual does not specify a time period. Your US warranty wording is almost the same give or take, i'd give it a go.
I fought Chryler on it based on how the warranties were worded and won after i went to arbitration because Chrysler Canada and I were at a stalemate. They kept claiming based on the EMISSION PERFORMANCE WARRANTY that I had not failed an emission test, which I fully concurred, HOWEVER, I was simply claiming on the EMISSION DEFECT WARRANTY, where there are no limitations or conditions other than the 8/130K which I was within, unlike the performance warranty where there are other conditions.
Since we were at a stalemate, I went to arbitration that is spelled out in the back of the warranty manual - I went to them on a Friday, Chrysler came back to me on Monday to cease my arbitration case and that they would pay up.
From my Warranty Manual
DaimlerChrysler Canada warrants that your new vehicle was
designed, built and equipped to conform at the time of sale with
applicable federal and provincial emissions standards, and that
the vehicle is at the time of sale free from defects in material
and workmanship which would cause it to fail to conform to the
applicable emission standards within the warranty periods specified.
A covered defect is one which causes your vehicle to fail to meet
applicable emission control regulations.
To keep your vehicle operating properly and in conformance
with emission regulations, see the “Scheduled Main tenance”
instructions in your Owner’s Manual and herein. Only
DaimlerChry sler parts should be used for maintenance and repair
of your vehicle’s emission control systems.
You should keep any receipts for maintenance service and pass
them on to the next owner of your vehicle, in case questions arise
concerning maintenance. DaimlerChrysler Canada has the right
to deny warranty coverage if your vehicle has not been properly
maintained, or if repairs are needed because parts other than
DaimlerChrysler parts were used; however, denial will not be based
on the lack of maintenance records alone.
Warranty service must be performed by an authorized
Chrysler or Dodge Retailer.
If emergency warranty service is required and an authorized
retailer is not available, contact DaimlerChrysler Canada Customer
Assistance (page 18) and request emission warranty service help.
EMISSION DEFECT WARRANTY
The 3/60 Basic Warranty covers all emission control
components for 3 years or 60,000 kilometres, whichever occurs
first. The Emission Defect Warranty provides longer coverage for
The Defect Warranty covers the following major emission control
parts, if so equipped, for 8 years or 130,000-kilometres, whichever
• catalytic converter
• powertrain control module
EMISSION PERFORMANCE WARRANTY
The Emission Performance Warranty only applies to cars and trucks
with a GVW less than 3855 kg (8500 lb).
For 2 years or 40,000 kilometres, whichever occurs first, the
Performance Warranty will cover the cost of repairing or adjusting
any components or parts of your vehicle that might be necessary to
pass an approved provincial Inspec tion/Maintenance (I/M) program’s
emissions test, but only if:
• your vehicle failed an approved provincial I/M emissions test; and
• your vehicle was properly maintained and operated until it failed
the test; and
• warranty service is required in order for your vehicle to pass the
provincial I/M test
Provincial test fees, if any, are not covered by this warranty.
HOW TO GET SERVICE UNDER THIS WARRANTY
If your vehicle fails an approved I/M emissions test within the
Emission Performance Warranty period, take it to an authorized
Chrysler or Dodge Retailer as soon as possible. Give the service
representative the printout that shows your vehicle failed the test. If
possible, bring all service receipts, maintenance logs and records to
prove that your vehicle has been properly maintained.
