Dead ECMs Wanted

I need a couple of bad EFI ECMs.
and a couple of bad Carb ECMs.

I am going to experiment with repair.

I do not intend to return these ecms. However, If I can learn how to repair them, I may be able to help someone out down the road.
Thanks,
Dale

Re: Dead ECMs Wanted

If you can run a soldering iron, and can tell the difference between the anode and cathode on a polarized electrolytic capacitor, you will be able to repair 90% of the dead ECM's. There's a cap that fails on these Mitsubishi manufactured ECM's, that is the number one cause of failure. We're talking about a $1.00 component. And they charge $250 to fix them (well, Petroworks does, and I've seen similar prices elswhere). Now that's capitalism at work!

Re: Dead ECMs Wanted

Aha!!!I could tell you-----------But then I'd have to uuuhhhh!
LOL

Right now, it is just trial and error, until I find out which circuits are malfunctioning. I have some electronics background---Enough to get me into big trouble.
When I find the key, I will post details.

Re: Dead ECMs Wanted

I think the problem is in the fact that the carbed ECMs aren't worth their weight in dirt as most people who build Samurais either have a dozen of them lying around or have ditched their ECMs entirely. Or, for the fact that EFI Samurai ECMs are so rare that, even broken, they're still worth quite a bit.

If you're serious about playing around with Suzuki electronics might I suggest that you start with a more common Tracker/Sidekick 8V ECM. There's lots of those lying around I'm sure you could get for cheap if not free...
