I am planning on getting DSMLink on my 95 Talon. My question is, if my ECU has a factory EPROM is it just a matter of popping out the old chip and popping in the new one or is it actually soldered onto the board?

My second question is, yes I have searched for this, where is the ECU located, under the radio or behind the glove box?

Thanks for the help

The ecu is behind the radio just remove the driverside kick panel and you will see it. The eprom chip is soldered in place, you will have to get the ecu socketed inorder for the dsmlink chip to be pressed in.

Didn't provide too much help eh? First paragraph under details:


Socket Service: If your ECU has not already been socketed by someone else, then you'll need to send us your ECU to have this work done. No DSM ECU comes from the factory with a socketed EPROM. So you'll *know* whether you've had it done before. If you don't know, then you haven't had it done. With this package, we'll socket the EPROM and install a DSMLink version in place of the factory EPROM. We'll then ship the factory EPROM back to you, unmodified, so that you can always revert back to factory mode if needed.
I'd say that would answer your question.

Installed the chip directly (no socket) now the ecu is making a burning smell. What should/can I do?
You are not serious are you?

I would say look for another ecu.

If you fried a couple of the traces around the chip you could send it to dave or tom and have them repair it. It might cost you at least $100 but its better then trying to find another 95 eprom ecu.

I would suggest sending a PM to Dave and asking him what he could do.

The board gets hot on the other side of the ECU (not by the dsmlink chip), is that a side effect of a burnt/unconnected trace? Any body know dave's handle on here?
