Looking for a Jeep ECU part number/ source Login/Join

I've got a 1996 Jeep Cherokee, 4.0L, manual transmission. My ECU is unrepairable according to the repair places, so it looks like I've got to find a new one. I'm currently running a borrowed ECU, but it's from a Jeep with an automatic transmission so it throws codes for sensors I don't have and I won't be able to pass inspection.

Does anyone know the part number for the manual transmission version of the 1996 Jeep Cherokee ECU? The numbers on my original computer are no longer legible and I already know it's not going to work out if I don't get the right one.

Also, I would appreciate recommendations for reputable places that may have them in stock. The places I've seen online (flagship 1, autocomputer exchange...) have absolutely terrible reviews and I'm hesitant to do business with them.

"I did," said Ford, "it is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them. They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards."
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard, then the wrong lizard might get in."

I've used moparpart.com and used my VIN to find the parts for my 06 wrangler. You might try that method.

Also, carcomputerexhange.com can program a new one based on your VIN. Not sure how pricey they are though.

Hmm, unfortunately they only go back to 2000, but thank you!

Alternative is to search junk yards for a wrecked jeep and see if they have the ECU...

I'll have to dig through it, but that looks like a fantastic reference. Thank you!

Yeah, I get a lot of stuff from rockauto, but I need the original part number before I can get one. Their site doesn't differentiate very well on these ECUs.

You could try this place, although I think they focus on the 05’s and 06’s which are very problematic. Ask me how I know...The owner, Mark, is supposed to be very helpful.

Look on ebay. I can't remember the store. I had to replace my wife's in here 2004 grand Cherokee years ago. Gave them the Vin came in preprogrammed and I sent her old one back to them. Plug and play. If I remember correctly it was maybe $150.

Alright, thanks to Aquilon's parts catalog I've got my part number. I think that's going to be the hard part! Thanks everyone. It looks like quite a few people have it, so now I'm just going to have to shop around for price.
