I don't think you can get the 100s anymore. I've only seen the 150s. I think the sockets should be mandatory in a rebuild, as you won't expose heat to the ICs when soldering.

I've been singing your praises as well. I don't have the patience or vision to do trace repair anymore, nor do I enjoy soldering.

That's not bad. Doesn't look like you have any blistered caps, and your diodes and resistors seem to be in good shape. Just need to inspect the traces under that first IC.

After testing today will be going back to its owner.The traces for the battery were gone eaten away. I replaced those, installed a few new capacitors, installed the socket for the IC, new battery and new IC. Cleaned up all the contacts on the relays. Good to go ready for minimum 5 years before it needs a new battery service.

I have two more ECUs in progress. $300 for one and if you send me your old one I credit you $50 so you get a fully functional tested unit for $250.

Mine is working like a charm by the way.
Should've sent you the switches too. They were toast but I was able to wd40 and scrape the rust off of them.
Thanks again man.
