TS Performance install PROBLEM!!!!!

Hello, Anouther newbie here, I know very little about my PSD. What I do know I have learned here. Great site!!!! Now the problem/question.

I have a 2000 PSD with pyro, boost, K&N (I will be changing to Baldwin) 4 inch downpipe with straght exhaust.

I got a 6 pos. TS Performance yesterday, stock, 50, 75, 100, 140, anti theft. I have had the computer in and out 4 times now cleaning the contacts. The truck was chipped before I got it so cleaning should not be such a problem.

With chip installed I have no "wait to start" light and it won't start.

Instructions say not clean contacts are 95% of the not starting problem, What is the other 5%.
Can I pull the chip and install the chip with batteries connected?
Thanks for any info.

The chip could be programmed wrong, They have to match the code on the ECM.

may sound dumb.... very dumb but did you make sure it's not in the anti-theft position of the switch. not sure what happens I have the high idle instead of anti theft. good luck.

That's a possibility if not, it is probably the chip itself

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

Thanks for the replies. I wish it was set in the anti-theft, but not. I have spoke with TS tech today, tried a fix, did not work, they said return to them they would fix it for me. Still have not received a call back from vender. I will let everyone know what the happens. I see no reason to name vender till I know what the outcome is.

Hey Wolcott, I know very little about this stuff. So you own a TS and now you are having a reburn done. What is the avantage? How much does that cost? Where do you get that done?
