Lightbulb 1987 Samurai ECM Bypass?

Is it possible to by pass the ECM?

I think mine died. Truck was running great then just died. Now won't do anything at all and I mean nothing.

What are my options?

All advice appreciated.

When you say nothing, no dash lights?, no cranking over?

Nothing no dash lights, won't crank over, it's like there is no electricity at all. It was in my garage idling because I just cleaned out the the debris on-top of the heater core because no hot air was coming out of the heater. It was running great and everything just shut off. I checked all the fuses and they were fine. The carb is a weber 32/36 and has a header. I tested the battery and it is fine so I think it has to be the ECU.

Let me answer the first question - once the original Hitachi carb has been removed, the ECU/ECM plays no further part in the operation of the vehicle and can be removed - it is not related to the problem you're experiencing now.
