Chip Troubles?

so i installed a TS 6 not to long ago and i have been having some troubles with it. some times i will go start my truck and turn it to high idle (for warm up) and theres no diffrence as i switch settings.....so ill turn my truck off....start it back up and walllahhhh all better all 6 pos work fine..... also if i satrt it with my remote start it dosnt seem to read the settings all the time?......maybe the contacts arent clean enough on the PCM?.....when i first installed and went to start i had no Wait to start light and no start so i took apart re cleaned the contacts a little and then started right up and smoked like a champ!.....
so im thinking of cleanning them more...anyone else have this problem?

Yup, what Raul said. Clean them again, and hope for the best. If it still gives you fits then get in touch with whoever you got the chip from and see if you can get it replaced.

Make sure you use a scotch brite pad on the contacts or some fine sandpaper. Just don't go crazy on it.
