ts chip problems

I have a ts 6 position chip installed on my 02 7.3 and seems to having an issue.... It supposed to be stock high idle 50 75 100 110 tunes or something really close to that anyway it seems that the first 4 spots are high idle and only one hp tune and it's not that much any ideas why it's not working properly FYI I've scrubbed the terminals very well

Thanks Dick

I have only been doing this for years and have never joined a forum just for this issue, call ts, this is exactly what he told me to do and the only way it would connect with ecm

Well still doesn't change that its wrong...so many post have been over this over the years and guys removing the solider only to have to re solider it to be able to use the chip.

No where in their instructions doe it say to remove the solider...I've been selling and installing TS chips for years...

By the way my name isn't Dick...

Tell that to the guy at Ts performance, mine would make no contact with solder on it period. I went back and forth with them about and his exact words was to get rid of the solder.

But it's ok big man, you win this one

I've heard this over and over. Went to silver, no dice. Tried several times. Nothing. Went to copper, runs like a champ, no problems.
