FORD TRANSIT 2015 ECU CLONE SID208.
Opening up the ECU on the bench, we began testing.
Using a signal generator on the cam sensor multipin, we injected a signal into the circuit.
It was found that all inline components tested fine, however there was no signal leaving the TC1797.
A last ditch effort was made to reflow the flash chip, just in case there was a cold solder joint.
This proved to be unsuccessful. Our customer opted for sourcing a replacement ECU.
On receiving the replacement, we made a clone of the faulty unit and carried out a bench test. All tested fine.
Another way of doing this job would have been to source a replacement flash chip, desoldering the faulty one and replacing it with the new chip. Our customer decided not to do this and they sourced their own replacement ECU.
