Where is the computer located?

I was reading another subject and it said how to access the computer chip, but it didn't say where the box was located! Does anyone know? Thank you for the input!

I am not sure of either the best location or the wire colors to install a JawDropper performance chip on a 1998 4-cylinder Jeep Wrangler TJ.


You got suckered; the JawDropper performance chip is nothing but a resistor in a fancy box. Google "Jawdropper performance chip" and read the many forum posts about it..Open the box and you'll find things that cost 10 cents at radioshack, put into a box with a sticker, priced at 20-40 bucks. Just toss it out.

Change cabin air filter


Most cabin air filters are located inside the dash. Only way to access this area is through the glove box. Open glove box, remove/open the tabs and the glove box cover will drop down to gain access. Be sure to remove all items from the box or they will just dump out on floor. Behind the glove box using a flashlight you will see the filter, remove, replacement is reverse of accessing.

Hope this helps!

The code reader connected to the computer box link is not reading. i used three different code readers with no reading. the check engine light is on. the vehicle is a 1995 Nissan 200sx SE,...


On these models there are 2 ALDL's. 1 is a Nissan 2 adapter and the other is a OBD2 adapter. Chances are you will need to use the specific Nissan adapter to gain access.

Where is a prom chip located at on a oldsmobile


Then programmable read only memory (PROM) chip that you are asking about is located inside the electronic control module.
This module is located just above the glove compartment in the dash area.
Removal of the glove compartment is required to remove this module. After removing the ECM you will note a small access cover. Remove this cover and you are at the PROM.
Good luck, it is quite easy.
