TS performance chip question

Hello.. I have a 1997 F250 7.3L 5 speed 4x4. I installed the TS 6 position chip about 3 months ago following the procedure. everything worked great untill jan. when it started getting cold out. now it works on and off. for example, when i first start the truck if i switch it to the 2nd setting ( high idle ) it will die. another example, I just drove 7 hours up north and during that time the chip was on the 4th setting ( 75hp ) it would do fine but then it would start bucking and jugging, then i quickly switch it back to the oem setting 1st position and it's fine.. this happened 3 times to me on that trip one way.

anyone have any opinions on this issue??

thanks..

Try letting the truck warm up, turn it off and then starting again, mine did this too first time it was ever cold and my truck saw a decent winter lol

I had some issues with my chip, until I cleaned the computer connection again. Might be something worth checking.

Take the chip out and re-clean the terminal contacts. We've seen the exact same thing happen after a customer newly installed a TS chip and the weather got cold. There was still a little residue on the contacts.

Yeah if you read the install directions it pretty much says "any issues clean and repeat." lol
