I stand by everything In my post concerning the possability of damaging the TCM.

Speaking of old and new knowledge, I'm working on a couple new threads that I should have up in just a few days. I know you'll love them---well maybe not so much.

Oh and

Jerry

Mental note to self--use larger arrows.

IF you followed the instructions then you should be fine.

Yes, I followed the instructions, feel confident that nothing happened there. I was just confused what exactly you meant with the good to bad things. Well, reading it now again I think I understood :P

And, that is more a general note, I am always very skeptical on how easy one can damage electrical equipment with electrostatics. I did build a couple of pcs and also did some electronics and never hand any issues. I guess it is mainly precaution for a very unlikely case that it actually happens. Even if you happen to put a spark onto the TCM, the metal case is most likely shielding it anyways...

Actually static electricity is a very real issue. You can actually damage a component and not see the results for some time. You can shorten the life of a component. Remember companies are tight as a general rule. The wouldn't spend the money to prevent it if they didn't need to.

Very true Danny but in the case of most PCM,ECU etc., you seldom see warnings or cautions with this regard because the case and components are generally protected. Many ECU re-builders years ago would have a RED tag with a wire twist tie(I know a little antenna for attraction of static charge) attached to their units when they were sold. But I do not see that anymore, not to say that there may be some still using the practice of those kinds of warnings to their products? If it were of great concern for warranty coverage I am sure we would see mention of it?

I was manly addressing the general electronic part of his statement. I agree with you on the unlikely hood of anything like that with this part. We have to remember these are media blasted as a unit in the rebuild process. To pretty them up. If that didn't cause an issue with static. Then you can say, No worrys.

Most companies that rebuild the Automotive ECUs will remove the soft core that houses and protects the electronic's to "beautify" the cast housing.

Not on these they don't. Only if the need to get to the back side to make the repair. They fix them in the case. It's to labor intensive to remove to just clean the case. Flight systems even charges more money if they have to remove to repair the pcm. I also removed the cover on the one I got and found some abrasive that had blown into the case.
