Does anyone have one of these lying around and are working?
or if you know how to solve the problem.
the guy told me he needs a computer chip but i don't know where or what that would be?

........ you mean the OBC? Computer Chip? What's wrong with it.. just the dead pixels?

I have an extra fully functional 8 button here. I just cleaned and protected the circuit board yesterday to ensure the display won't be dying anytime soon.

Ah, right... he probably means ECU.

I'll need to know the part number of your ECU. There are quite a few different ones from year to year, depending on car model and options.
