TW install trouble shooting

I just finished installing my tw chip and i cant figure out what i did wrong. Glow plug light does not come on, data conection port under dash will not comunicate with scanner, and no start. It does have fuel pressure, and the tach does move. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Sounds to me like the chip hasnt seated all the way, i.e. there's still some silicone on the connections. I'd try takin it out again, and cleaning the connections more.

I had to do it a few times to get mine to work.


hope that helps!

I second that, might be that you didnt clean the connectors good enough (i think the TW chip plugs into the back of the ECU correct ? Like my chip did) i spent about 30 min cleaning my conectors so i wouldnt have to take it all back apart again after i got it in.
