Capacitor Replacement
Using 105c Panasonic NHG Electrolytic Capacitors.

This is a generic problem with all of the ECUs and TCUs up until the OBD II or hybrid ECUs. The factory capacitors leak electrolyte out of the seal where the wire leads pass into the capacitor. The electrolyte travels by gravity and capillary action disolving any metals it comes in contact with like the copper of the circuit traces and the lead and tin in solder. Eventually this will cause the ECU to stop functioning and your car won't start.

You want to replace the capacitors before they leak or you will require the repairs listed below.

EPROM Socketing of EPROM ECUs
Using a high quality low profile machine pin socket (compatible with DSMlink).

Compare the EPROM with the non-EPROM ECU.
Only EPROM ECUs can be socketed. Non-EPROM ECUs have to be converted.

ZIF EPROM Socketing
Using a low profile ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) socket.

This option is for people burning their own EPROMs and changing chips often. Works with DSMLink V3. Not suitable for the 1G DSMLink V2.
