You need to get the chip out of the pcm before you fry them both if the contacts are that bad.
The contacts can be "retinned" if you are a competent at soldering on these type of boards, if not, find an electronics shop that is, shouldn't cost too much, or find one out of a junkyard as was mentioned.
completely agree. i had to do this on a jeep that i had, i ended up taking it to a shop to get them to finish it. cost me like 20 bucks, and they wanted 130 for a PCM at the junkyard. i definitely take it to a electrical shop and see if they can retin it.
