Ok well this is what I would do. You can order a new PCM from parts stores, they will need your vin number and pcm number so they can program it properly I think the cost is around 500 bucks but don't quote me on that.

As for your TS chip contact who you got it from and see what they can do for you. If you got it from a good supplier they may help you out the best they can. As in they may replace the chip or it maybe saveable and just need to be reburned. They most likely will ask you send it to them so they can check it out and see if it is saveable or needs replacing.

How do you know the chip is fried does it look burnt, smell burnt. obviously it ain't workin right now.

FYI always disconnect the batteries while doing electrical work on a vehicle I have seen some very bad electric burns caused by people being to lazy to remove there rings, necklaces, braceletts, and not disconnecting the batteries.

Also next time use some duct tape and cover that area of your pants to prevent this from happening again I know it sounds strange or stupid but I know people that do this because your not the first person I heard this has happened too.

beepbeepbeepbeep murphy's law!!! Check with the vendors on here also they might know where to get a new pcm also?? Not sure but its worth a shot. Also another option is to find yourself an old blanket you can use to lay across your batteries while your under the hood

happened to my pcm on my 96 7.3 it cost about 250 but mine slowly went bad and caused it to die alot and scan tools also caused to to die, which led my to buying a new IDM also ford wanted 800. so that was out of the option i ordered one from beans diesel performance in TN for 100. Its a high performance IDM to give you better low end toque.

I don't even want to know why you have a zipper that runs all the way around to your "sitting" area.

You can get a new computer through Napa for $256 if they have it in stock, if not they will charge about $75 for express shipping which takes a day or two depending on where you live. That was the price that they quoted me earlier today.

I assume you're talking about a gas motor computer like in your truck? Cause Napa online doesnt list a computer for the 7.3L diesel.
