A renewed ecu.

Repair of damaged printed circuit board
Replacement of capacitors nearing end of life
Application of conformal coating to prevent further corrosion
Installation of sealed battery pack with special protective connectors
5-10 business day rebuild time (may be longer if unexpected circumstances arise)
Five-year warranty against return failure
We do not charge a bench test fee

That doesnt sound that bad for 300 clams.

What would you charge for the above?

I got the batteries for $12 each, and the Integrated Circuits were like a couple dollars for 10 of 'em.. I wouldn't charge anything, myself. No real need to change the capacitors unless they are damaged. In some cases the board can be saved if it isn't too bad. I have seen everything from completely useless to almost pristine save for a bad battery. Got a pile of 'em here. One or two are savable with some work.
I also remove the ICs and replace them with a socket. Then plug new ICs into the socket.
Conformal coating is merely clear Krylon.
Anyway those guys are running a business. I can see charging what people will pay but honestly it's maybe a half hour's work to refurbish one, and the parts are peanuts.

Not to hijack but curious what sources or recommendation you all have for the non memory seat switches. I'm in the same boat as Doug, but my ECU's been trashed by previous owner.

Thanks in advance
