You don't have the terminals clean enough where the chip plugs into the PCM. Remove the chip and clean the terminals again.

You have to go down to the copper, just don't rub through it.

There is a coating over the copper contacts that has to be completely removed. Just don't rub through the copper contacts. It sounds like you are down to the copper contacts in some places and not others, that is why you are having the issue.

If you pull the chip out, do you have the light then?

Ok, then you either have a connection problem still or the chip is burned for the wrong computer code. How did you determine the PCM code when you ordered the chip? If you read the tag on the PCM connector, that isn't always correct.
