maybe fried my pcm? or something else

Well I ordered a TS single position chip from xpd, plugged it in did everything as per the instructions. Hooked everything back up and correctly went to turn the key and all the check engine/water in fuel ect lights came on and i go to crank it and it sounds like dead batteries. The cab lights will flash/go dim then brighten back up.

Also tried it with the chip out same effect.

Does anyone have any clue what this could be?

Charge up your batteries and cross your fingers. Did you have the key in the ignition when you installed the chip? If so you probably fried your PCM.
