How do you connect the module to your reprogrammer ? need to weld some wires ? And how much for that MPLAB PM3 ?
The timer has a programming port (thanks Jabsco!) on the board, so no soldering is required. the PM3 programmer is about $900, but it is WAY overkill for this application, but I have it so I use it. You can use any cheap programmer that supports Microchip products.

If anyone wants to tackle this, let me know and I'll hook you up.

Cool, send me a PM.

Several people asked me about doing this for them, so I set it up on my website. . I think the cost is reasonable, basically covers my time for disassembly, programming, test, reassembly etc. I'm always open to trading for beer though
