    I am trying to identify and source this resistor. I talked to Mouser tech and when the part number did not cross they were done. As I was sitting there, another customer took pity on me and came over and said it was a snubber resistor for an actuator circuit.

    The capacitors were smoked (not uncommon) and this resistor. Before I drop ~$250 for a reman ECM, I thought I would attempt a repair.

    It is marked
    +10K ]

    In this picture it is the gold blob to the left of the blue capacitor.

    I have successfully swapped the capacitors and ended up with working ECM's for less than a dollar.

    Thanks in advance.

    The gold (yellow) blob looks like a typical Tantalum capacitor.
    I don't see a resistor?

    It's an easy enough thing for people like us, but it goes in a truck so I can not tell you. Pick another site, like electrotechonline.
