Default Just socketed my ecu solid cel on ecu

I socketed my ecu tonight and now im running in limp mode. Cant rev past 3500 and my ecu light stays solid. I have a 91 crx si with a zc and am using the PM6 ecu. I tried to different bins to see if it would matter, no change. What can be the cause of this. I used a the batronix 4 burner and the AT29c256 chips. Batronix doesnt have that in their software so i burned it using the normal 29c256 could that be it? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks

Fetch the code and let us know what it is. It could be anything. Chances are it's a soldering problem, but see if you can get some codes out of it first.

The led on the ecu stays solid. I checked my soldering over and over again. I think i fucked it up when removing the chip cause i cant get a good connection on one of the pins. Iono its fucked for now cause im sick of messing with it. Good thing I just picked up another PM6.

Heh, well, I do chip ECUs for $30 shipped of you'd rather someone else do it.

..I've done a few a few users's ECUs from HMT, I'm sure they can vouch.

The first time I chipped a PM6, it did exactly what you are getting. Solid CEL with any chip including stock PM6. I checked each of the 28 pins for continuity with a multimeter and realized that 2 pins were together. I desoldered the socket and re-did it and it works fine now. My best suggestion, get a magnifying glass on an adjustable arm. It makes so much of a difference when you can see everything very clearly. Also, a temp controlled soldering station made a huge difference too.

I am having a similar problem with my 91 civic dohc zc, i socketed my pm6 and put in a chip for the zc and now it will run great for a bit then the engine light starts coming on main relay starts clicking with the light and barely runs then the led on ecu comes on solid do you think i could have the same issue with a couple legs of the socket being joined?
