It is probably not getting good connection. Make sure that you have all the protective glue/silicone off of the pcm. I had the same problem you did and cleaned it a little better and now i don't have any problems.Make sure to clean top and bottome of the connector to get a good connection.

No, the chip will stay in there fine without anything, i do recommend putting tape around the chip to hold in there a little better and to keep dust out.

I forget what its called, but i used the sponge type sanding pad to clean off the connectors on mine.

How did you fit a 5 inch downpipe on your truck and why did you go to 3.5 inch straight pipe after it?

I am pretty sure its the PCM.

Did you have the key in the off position when you installed the chip, You really should have the key out of the ignition and the batteries unhooked when you put a chip in just to be safe!

if you did not disconnect your batteries when you pulled the pcm you could have caused a short circuit and fried your pcm
