Chip Removal Help
I just purchased a 2002 F350. I bought it from a friend that has owned it for the past 6+ years. When he bought it it had pillar gauges and he was also told there was a chip. There are no dials or switches anywhere. I am assuming that there is a chip because I found the black plug that appears to be from where the chip is installed.
I would like to remove the chip to 1. Find out what it is and 2. Figure out if I even want it. In my search online it appears to be a pretty simple task. I just wanted to make sure I am not missing anything.
1. Put the keys away nowhere near the ignition.
2. Loosen 10mm bolt and unplug connector to PCM on outer firewall.
3. Remove PCM from under dash
4. Unplug chip
5. install PCM
6. Attach connector and secure 10mm bolt.
7. Hope it starts.
Is it really that simple?
