Upon trouble shooting some cell I had on my truck I removed my UNICHIP while bringing it to the dealer just incase.

When reinstalling and pulling the 24 pin connector through the fire wall with the supplied insertion tool 2 of the pins in the plug came out. Now obviously my truck will not run with these pins out. Can anyone take a quick glance at there 24 pin plug (the plug that actually connects to the unichip ECU mounted in the cab) and tell me where the BROWN wire and the WHITE wire go into the connector?

If at all possible, please include a reference point such as the white wire with red stripe that is on the corner of the connector or so forth..i.e. between whatever two colored wires?

Thanks for any and all help! Points definitely sent to whoever can help me as I dont wanna take off the unichip cause its a pain int he but!

I guess ill be more gently next time and use more electrical tape down the length of the wire to prevent these mishaps! DAMN I am pissed at myself! :mad:

Thanks again for help

I can't check on mine until tomorrow afternoon. If you have not gotten an answer by then, I will check for you. Might be quicker to call Unichip in the morning. Good luck.

Does this chip do anything?
Usually, these "chip" thingies are simply a collection of passive devices, like resistors, that modify ECU input parameters such as Intake Air Temp and Coolant Temp, to fool the ECU into thinking the engine needs more fuel. Not much more than that, really.

That is true of those ebay $25 chips. Unichip is more than than that. Check their site.

Damn, you mean those gains on the dyno were all in my head? Crazy. Didn't know you could custom tune a "thingie".
