Broken Pin On ECU!

Hey Corral,

So I dropped my 90 LX off at tuner to get tuned and received a call from them saying one of the pins on my A3M1 ECU broke off while disconnecting the harness.

Anyone have experience with this? Is it fixable by soldering a new pin?

I cannot find a replacement ECU for a reasonable price so Iíve been looking for Cardoneís but everywhere is out of stock.

Iíve already called a local place that remanufactures ECUís and they said they canít fix broken pins.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Depending on how it is broken, it can be repaired if you have the tools and patience

Other wise you could add a wire instead to the board with a bullet connector outside the connector

Picking it up as we speak. Found a computer repair place that was able to reuse the existing pin and solder it back into place. Took him a couple hours but he was able to fix it. It was the #60 pin so it was in the back 2 rows behind 2 other pins. Definitely tough but it looks like it came out well.

Heading to the tuner right after I leave to see how it works! Thanks for the reply Indy2000. Youíre always willing to lend some advice.

FWIW ECU is working again!!! Tune still isnít done though, full throttle anyways, because clutch was slipping at around 400hp/450tq.

Swapping clutch to my Spec stage 2 I had from my previous notch then bringing it back to finish tune.
