Chip and dash lights

I have. 03 250 7.3 and I put a ts 6 pos chip on my truck last night and now my rpms trans temp Gage's are not working and I have my check gage light on ( I'm assuming bc my Gage's don't work) and also my check engine light is on and staying on, I was told its bc I just pimped up the truck but my question is wil they go away once there use to the chip or can I go to auto zone or somewhere and have the codes cleared with no damage to the chip. If that won't work what else can I do to fix the problem?

kind of sounds like the chip doesnt have the right pcm code burnt onto it and causing you to have problems with your gauges.

Who and where did you buy it from?

Well then it has something to do with your chip i would say then. When you ordered it from thorough bred did you have to send your pcm code in? And did you get custom tunes installed on it or just go with canned ts tunes??

Took the chip off and the problem fixs it's self, I cleaned it some more but now it's back since the chip is on it, do I need to clean it more or is it a chip problem and I need to send it back or call them and talk to them?
