the 4wd worked fine, then one day, before the computer switch, i tried to hoof it up to my friend's house, he lives on a gnarly hill, it crapped out in 4h, now it repeats that same thing, just no power in 4h, i haven't tried 4low...

my tire size is: 31x10.50r15

Have you tried taking it up a steep hill in 4WD HIGH? What does it
going up a steep hill in 4high in first, it just stumbles and stalls. not enough power.

11, 22, 33, 44 and 55 means it is telling you Mode 1, Mode 2, Mode 3, Mode 4 and Mode 5.

Once you see one of those blinks, flip the switch over to select that mode. You want Mode 3, and read the codes from there.

There is a video in my signature below.

Gotta get the proper CODE. Time to pull the passenger seat out, get yourself a teeny-tiny screwdriver to flip the switch, and get the code RIGHT.

Have a piece of paper and pencil to write down the code(s).

Do you have the Factory Service Manual for this rig in PDF, with the chapter links? If not...see my signature below. Sounds like you need it if you don't have it. The FSM lays out the process for getting your codes properly and is easy to understand. Using the PDF, you can even print up the pages you need from your computer beforehand and take them with you while you are working on the ECCM. As primitive as this OBD 1 system is, if you do it right, you can find out what is wrong. Like a lot of 80's tech, you actually have to do some work...to MAKE it work.

on the otherside is the head of a screw which holds that green thing in place. that's the screw i messed with that caused the thing to short out.
i would resolder the other side of that pin that turns on ecu..cold solder joint...then clean and replace the thermal compound on the green thing you refer to...that transfers heat to the body of the unit for cooling...like a cpu on motherboard...just a suggestion..


i see that this has now been covered...sry..should have read whole thread
