all you did is take off the silicone? you didnt use a lil bit of scotch brite to clean off the connections?

did you receive the instructions?

check out martys video on a DP chip install... your install is exactly the same:

Diesel Movies - I install a DPTuner F5 chip in my buddies truck. Positions were Stock hi idle 60tow 80econo 120 race 140smoke.

the chip wouldn't just not do anything... it wouldn't feel stock... i think its not making connection.. either too much was taken off or not enough... if the chip was bad it wouldn't start... or idle like if it had a big cam in it...
