i want to get an apr chip. directions say you have to dissconnect the battery to get to the ecu and to have ur anti theft radio code. where can i find this? i bought the car a few months ago and have no idea where to get it from. also, anyone with the apr chip- do you install it yourself or have to send the ecu away for them to do it[down]

find a local place to do it for you so there is no down time. You can find you radio code in you radio system guide that comes with the car

Disconnect the battery, remove the 5, 8mm bolts that is on the ecu cover. Disconnect your ecu, send out your ecu to an APR dealer and they use about 2lbs of solder and they put it in your ecu. They send the ecu back with the apr chip and you plug it in put the cover back on connect the battery do a TBA and drive away.
