Did you clean the PCM contacts? Did you clean them to much and damage them? What chip is it?

Need more info, but it sounds like you either cleaned the terminals to much and the chip is not making good contact. Which could be causing your problem.

Or you did not clean them good enough and you are not getting good contact. Which could also cause your problem.

A brass brush works very well, and will not take off the tin! Ask Bill at PHP
