im just full of question's lately sorry.
ok this might sound stupid but i just want to see if it would be necesary to unhook the battery to change out the ECS computer?
another thing i just want to make sure i grab the right computer from the parts car. the ECS computer is the one in the back of the car on the passanger side right above the wheel, kindof next to the windshield washer fluid tank?

It is always a good idea to unhook the battery when changing out electronic parts.

Yes, the ECS is in the passenger side of the hatch area.

ok thanks. do you think it would be the the computer if the tour light goes on and off.
when i first got the car the light never came on then i hit a wire or connector under the dash by the pedals with my foot and the light started flashing, on bumps mostly. sometimes it will stay on and i will try and hit the button but nothin happens, do you think it could be the computer? or just a loose wire under the dash were i hit it with my foot?
also i cant hear the servos at all in the car.

I've never been able to hear mine either. It could be the wire you hit, a bad ECS (poor capacitors just like the ECU's), or a broke wire on one of the strut towers.

I honestly dont think it hurts nothing to leave the battery connected, I removed my tcu and ecm with it on and it hurt nothing at all. to me it makes things worse cause it resets everything like your stereo and etc.
