stalling after chip install

Ok, so I feel like a newb asking this cuz I've done plenty to the 96 with little to no issues, but I just installed a BDP chip in my dads 03 7.3 and every now and then it will just stall when your driving it. It will only happen when you let off of the throttle. It wont start back up right away, you just have to cycle the key a few times and if the glow plug light goes out, then theres a good chance it will fire back up. It will do it any chip setting, but once you get it fired back up, it might only run for a few seconds and then shutt off again but it might run fine too. I think that I cleaned the contacts fine good cuz the high idle works and the settings work like they should. I dont think its the cps either because the truck ran great before the chip, inless I somehow fried the cps when installing the chip. I have a spare cps sitting around if thats the issue.

take the chip out or set it back to stock.see what you got then.if it is a chip issue,call bdp.see what they say,if it does the same thing with the chip out,then get accsess to a scanner,see what your ipr values are,icp,things like that.it sounds like a fuel issue or may be a hpop issue.you might have trash in the pick ups in the tank,fuel reg screen might be clogged.to many variables.hook it to a scanner,process of elimination really

I had the same problem on my other 02 when i put an MCN diesel chip in it. It had 5 or 6 different tunes also. The first time it did it, i didnt clean off the contacts off enough, and the second time it was the CPS.... It would cut off while doin 45 or idling, or sometimes it wouldnt start at all for a few minutes...

you could have cleaned the contacts TOO much.

I had the same issue with my chip. Luckely I had a local guy install it when I bought it and he warranties his work. What he did was cleaned the contacts a little more on the PCM, changed the switch wire out with a new one, and (what I actually think was wrong) where the chip plugs into the PCM, and the PCM actually fits into the black plastic peace that holds it, he had the wire folded basically, because the chip plugs in the back of the PCM and then the wire for the switch had to run from that to the dash, so the wire was folded from the back to come out the front and I think that was causing the chip to move (my truck would also do the same thing if I had the E brake on and would pull the lever to let the brake up and it would "jar" the PCM) so I think the chip was kind of loose. To fix this he took the black cover that holds the PCM and drilled a 3/8" hole in it so the wire could go straight out the back and not have that 90 degree bend in that holder that holds the PCM. So far it has not done it since. Hope this helps.

I think thats probably what my issue could be. My chip wire is bent back around that pcm holder so I will have to try and drill a hole in the front of it. I have access to a computer at a local dealership, so if this doesnt fix the problem, I will just hook up a computer to it. It has to do something with the chip though cause it ran perfect, like stock 7.3 should, and it never quit or anything. My dad has had it since it was new so I know it has been well mantained.

mine is still running great, but we did switch out the cable for the chip too, so it could have been one or the other but I still say drilling the hole and running the cable straight through the back of that holder vs. putting a tight 90 degree bend on it was the issue.
