In Reply to: Answer to my stalling M3 - not the EWS or Vanos .. posted by agl on June 19, 2000 at 21:34:53:

I couldn't understand what the F--- was going on after I installed JC's chip. The problem was that I did not insert the computer chip far enough into the motherboard. I was being too careful. In a way, it was just resting there and not really connected. Both the chip and the encryption board should lay right on top of each other. If they are fully inserted there should be no way they can come loose. I may be wrong but I'm betting that you're being too careful. There should be a tight fit.
: First off, thanks for all who helped me trouble shoot my problem. My original posts are below if you are curious about what my symtoms were. My stalling problem was actually two seperate issues (i think... if some would like to clarify please do) but first my battery died and the alternator's output was low - related issues, both were replaced but after a few test runs the car completely died... Now the second problem that caused my car to shutdown was that my JC Chip popped off the board : (, I thought I had it secured but apparantly not... has anyone experienced this? and can anyone suggest some sort of adheasive or something to keep a chip in place... something that works with electronic boards? I will contact Josh at Eurosport tomorrow to see if he has any suggestion but i wanted to see if the board had any suggestions... TIA
