It isn't worth taking a chance. Remove the ECM and the battery. I have 2 vehicles in the shop right now that didn't. A 2002 F-250, and 2003 Dodge diesel. Both had a flatbed installed that required welding. Both have fried Computers.

You don't have to remove the ECM, just unplug it so there is no electrical connection.

While it is true that unplugging things SHOULD be enough. Electrical problems have a way of happening that no one can explain. Especially when welding. Once there to unplug it. It takes all of few minutes to remove it and set it aside. Then if something weird does happen. You don't have to wonder about it. This approach will never fail you.
