Well this is just great. hahahaha what are the chances of this i get the chip in today open the ECU and beleive it or not im one of the 5% that has a soldered in chip. Im calling them tomorrow to see what my options are. I want to just bring it to a electronics place and have them do it or i have a shop that does kind of work with computers a lot. Well we will see what happens tomorrow. Anyone got any ideas or know if it is going to be possible to resolder a new one in? thanks
Take it to a dealer or you can take it to a electronics place. Its a 5 min. job. or for your self you can use a soldering iron and some metal heat sink clamps on near by chips. heat the solder till its becomes a liquid them wipe away. repeat till you can remove the chip. now you add a jacket or seat for your new chip . Its a plastice with metal lead piece that you put in the board and solder so you don't put your chip in danger of being destroyed from heat from solder.
BTW warning to everyone if you cause alittle bit of static electricity to the chip. You just destroyed your chip and possibly the rest of the chips on your board. SO make sure you touch something metal to ground or remove any charge to yourself.
