Need some help quick

Ok, so I got a TS 6-position chip for Christmas (1996 f250 psd) Now when i start the truck in any of the settings, except high idle, it lopes until i mash the throttle and get it to stop then it runs fine. Also, the wait to start light just flashes and doesnt stay on for a full cycle. I pulled the chip and put the truck on a scan gauge and checked some vitals. My ICP pressure at idle stayed steady around 580 psi. Cranking it went to 1014 psi then to 580 at idle. My IPR percentage was steady at 16%. The truck did have the P0603 Internal Control Module KAM error. Then when my mechanic did a "key on engine running self test" it threw 2 new codes. One for EBPV but thats wired open so i expected that. The other was a P1705 not in park or neutral. Basically what im asking is, what here is normal and what all this $hit means. Thanks, Jeff

your numbers are fine the psi is the pressure the HPOP is supplying the % is how hard the pump is working, the higher the % the harder it is working. the KAM error is the pcm lost power at some point and hasn't reset (i believe)

but i agree with kris that you probably have an issue with the contacts in the pcm. or a faulty chip

KAM code is a result of chip installation. Presumably, you disconnected both batteries before removing the PCM to install the chip? If so, there is your KAM Error. If not, you have bigger issues.
ICP and D.C. numbers look reasonable.
The fact that your WTS light doesn't stay illuminated tells me either:
1) the terminals on your PCM are not completely clean. Remove the PCM and use acetone and a scotchbrite pad to remove all of the silicone. Use a tooth-pick to get in between the 'fingers' on the pcm terminal. Just scrubbing with a scotchbrite pad will simply push the silicone into the areas next to the ridges. If you haven't done it before, take your time. Avoid removing any of the tin from the terminals if possible.
2) The chip has been programmed for an incorrect PCM strategy. Did you order the chip yourself, or did someone else place the order?

Chrome don't get ya home

Sorry for the delay guys. Thanks for all your help. I'm gonna re check my connections. My dad ordered it for me but he had exact instructions so it was tuned right. I called the guy i bought it from and it was tuned right. Ill try and see if all silicone is off and by chance a little tin comes off is that the end of the world?

Just asking. Your friend that cleaned the PCM contacts before the chip install, he cleaned BOTH sides of the board not just the side that you can easily see right? Who's tunes are on the chip? I've had this issue with Beans tunes.
