computer fried???

well i decided to let my buddy use my truck this weekend to move a tractor so i pulled my chip out b/c the clutch is weak so i didnt want him towing with the chip on. well i just left the chip hang there and when he pushed the emergency brake he somehow pushed the chip back up into the circuit board where it was installed and the truck shut off. there were two blown fuses out under the hood and i replaced both of them but it still wont start it just cranks over and the wait to start light doesnt come. my guess is the silver box that the chip plugs into got fried, anyone have any ideas? thanks in advance and sorry this is so long!

well i just pulled it out and left it hang and i guess when he pushed the brake he pushed it back up into the slot. i have the back if that black guard or bracket whatever you want to call it cut out so the chip can just be slid in and out. yeah it sucks i dont know where to start!

His "foot" "accidentally" pushed the chip back in? Seriously? He told you that? Don't you think he just wanted the power and saw that chip hanging out, maybe thought you wouldn't know about him putting it back in?

Sorry to be negative.

I thought the same thing but didn't wanna say it. But if you can't trust your friends, who can you trust.

thanks for all the advice guys, actually i think he is telling the truth because i looked where it was hanging and it was right behind the e-brake pedal so i guess its my fault for not tying it up out of the way. Actually by buddy left work early and stopped a junk yard and found one for $75 and he just called and said it is running again!!! guess i lucked out. thanks again guys
