Question PLEASE HELP 99 Manual 6 position Check Engine problem

I have an early 1999 f250 6 speed with a bullydog 6 position chip (stock, valet, 50, 75, 100, high idle.) The check engine light comes on and stays on any time I get above idle. This is with the chip in any position. It stays on until I shut the truck off, and it will not come on until I get down the road a ways. I called bullydog and they said it may be the map sensor, but how do I fool it? I dont know what code it is because the parts store that read the code wanted me to kill it, plug in obd, then start it up, and the light wont come on until I go down the road, so the obd read no problems.
ANY SUGGESTIONS??? (fool map by grounding a wire etc...)

Also, when my windshield wipers are on delay, the engine stalls for a split second each time they swipe, causing the truck to buck if in gear. Could this be the cam position sensor that is on recall? (have not got it fixed yet) or something else????
Please help
Oh, it is a regular cab with 5.5" lift, 35" bfgs on 18" alcoas and looks sweet. I'M Eric from nashville. My truck is white and was in DIESEL POWER MAGAZINE JULY 2007 i think on page 26. please help.

I tried to check the code by going to advance auto parts. He said KIll the engine, He plugged it in, and then I started it and no problem. THe only problem is when I get going down the road. ????
