Chip problems

Hey guys its me once again this time I have a issue with my chip so I recently bought a php Phoenix chip with custom tunes and when I first got it it was set up for stage 2 injectors because it was my plan to get some but I changed my mind and decided to let my tranny live a while longer and during this time the truck ran fine a little lethargic but it ran and I recently got it reburned for stock injectors but when I got it back and I got it installed I turned the key on and there was a buzzing sound coming from the pcm and my wait to start light never went off I called bill about this issue and he said take it to a computer repair shop and have them soder a 10000th of an inch on the pcm connection and if that doesn't work send him the chip and he'd sense a new chip I was wondering if the connection points might be worn because its had 3 chips in it so I'm wondering if maybe the points are betting worn let me know what you guys think thank you and God bless

first... have you tried removing the chip and tring to start it?

sounds like a bad chip to me... my buddy's truck just did that with his superchip, had to have a new scanner sent to him, and a special scanner to return the truck to stock

So it's either a bad chip or I'm guessing a faulty or dirty blade where your chip plugs in. Did you try cleaning them with a scotch bright pad?
