TSP Chip not working..Help!

I have a 6 position chip that I am putting in my PS. I have cleaned the contacts several times, but the truck will not fire, it just spins. I can't figure out how to get the computer out to make sure the connections are really clean.

Anyone have any suggestions? Can you take out the computer easily?

I have everything loose, but I cannot get it out through the firewall. Does it have some kind of metal cage around it?

Best way to pull the computer is thru the engine bay, you'll have to move the plastic wheel well.

Alright experts, I am stumped. I got the computer out, cleaned the contacts really well with electrical connection cleaner, and still it won't start.

I did notice that the "wait to start" light is not coming on when the chip is in. The truck will start fine when the chip is out.

I tried calling TSP, but they are closed on weekends. I guess no one would need technical advice on a saturday...



Any thoughts?

If your not getting a wait to start light with it plugged in then it is somehow disabling your PCM. No wait to start light is a dead give away that your PCM is not working!
