Problem with my mcrich performance chip.

hi this morning I wanted to change my chip of origin by a mcrich performance chip. My chip of origin is welded, therefore I unsoldered it then I welded a support of chip then I pose my new chip . I replug all the car does not start, I puts my old chip and it does not start . What can i do? did my ecu die?
The indicator of the key code does not ignite with starting.
I specify that my model is: FIAT punto mk1 1l2 spi 8v 60 1997
thanks for replying

TBH i would suspect oyu have damaged the ECU motherboard on the desoldering.its very easy to overheat a motherboard desoldering or even lift a trace if your not careful

i was referring more to costs than areas.easier to source locally.

to the original post closely inspect the motherboard around where you soldered/desoldered. look for broken traces and if oyu have a multimeter try and check continuity from the chip pins and trace to a termination point.

Re: Problem with my mcrich performance chip.

Sorry I meant in regards to Beau's post, last time I checked Gaudeloupe wasn't in Europe ....I'll get my coat

Edit for Timeless:

The safest bet is to find an ECU from a scrapyard with an exact matching serial number. This is written on the ECU label.

Re: Problem with my mcrich performance chip.

I checked continuity in all board = no problem.
Can i have a big picture of the board in order to expect the network?
