PCM contacts loose

We were getting ready to put a tuner on my son's truck and noticed a couple of the contacts pulled loose. Does anyone know if or how to reattach these? Or anyone that could do this?

Dang, never heard that before. Better get in touch with someone that knows PCMs and have them repair it. Jody can do it at DP tuners or at least I think he can.

Jody can retin the contacts, but he doesn't fix the contacts.

Wow, that's an expensive paper weight. So, it's not repairable at all?

I am going to give it a try. They are just soldier contacts. I am hoping if I take my time, and check each with an ohm meter for connectivity, I can get them back in. There is only 1 that is out and another that is raised up.

Any good electrical shops or maybe even computer shops around to help. Don't blame you, I think I would give it a try my self before I gave up..

Well, that was according to a friend of ours who has a PhD in electronical engineeng. However, I am all for one tackling something everyone else deemes impossible. I say go for it. Like any DIYer, make sure you have another PCM around just in case.

If you never try something new you will never know its outcome.

I would try a little super glue to re-attach them to the PC board. If they tore off of the board completely, try using some solder to reattach them at the point of breakage before using the super glue as it will not stand up to the heat of a soldering tip. Once soldered, you should be able to bend the tab up just enough to get a dab of super glue under the tab and then hold it down with a small screwdriver until the glue sets.

At this point, what does he have to lose? You know the old "nothing ventured, nothing gained" thing. LOL
