installed a TS chip now wont start.

it was running great last night after we installed it. we got everything on made sure the settings were working then left it in stock almost all night. went and parked it and this morning it wont start. spent about 20-30 minutes just workin the key. would get it to fire every now and then but itld just die right away. and its only mid 40s out so it shouldnt be hard to start at all. any ideas?

Take the chip out and try again.

With the KOEO, does the WTS light come on and the fuel pump run?

I agree. Pull the chip and try to start. Should be fine. If it fails to start without the chip, it may just a coincidental unrelated issue.

i think my problem is i may have cleaned them too much. i read somewhere, i think off another forum, if you wear the tin off it wont work. i just barely got through the tin if i remember right when i was scraping the connection. ill see what i can do though.

so i took it out and it fired right up. drove around for a while and got the engine warm and plugged it back in and it started just fine. kind of weird but it makes sense its easier to start a warm engine

Seems like you just had a bad connection the first time you installed it. IF you don't do it right, you can have issues. Be sure to tape the chip in place (cover the hole with tape) to keep it from backing out and messing you up again.
