I had questions on this also recently. But I finally have answers that I understand.
Since you have a 2004 you have 2 choices. You can use either the Riva/R&D chip or a 1k ohm resistor. You can get the resistors at Radio Shack. They cost $1.50 for 2. What you need to do is find the temp sensor on the stinger pipe near the cat and follow it back to the left side of the electrical box. You unplug the connector.
Here are your two options.
1. Directly plug in the Riva chip. Done
2. Make your own chip. Cut the sensor wire and reuse the harness that plugs in. Solder the 1k ohm resistor to the 2 wire leads coming out of the harness you just cut off the sensor connection. Then use electrical tape, heat shink, etc to keep the water off the resistor. Plug in this homemade chip and your done.

Used the Radio Shack resistor on both my units, worked fine going on 8 yrs. The chip is just a packaged resistor with a plug, just a convenience.
