Unhappy please help!

I have an 02 stroker and I just got back from getting fuel and I shut it off and went to turn it back on an hour or so later and it wouldn't crank over at all the starter would just click. so I replaced the starter and now it cranks over but will not start and its throwing a injector drive module code. I went thrugh all the fuses and relays and the injector drive relay wont stop making a fast paced clicking noise. it also wont let me even read the codes from the computer anymore. I have a super chip programmer and I think it may have either locked me out of or fried my computer. I don't know what to do anymore so I could sure use some help!

Buzzing relays are a sign of low voltage, insufficient current available to hold the relay closed. This could be several things...

On an '02 I would first look at the connection under the hood where the B+ makes its transition to the Fuseable Links that feed the fusebox. Look under the Airbox, at the top of the inner wheel well, for a 1"X1" black plastic cover that says High Current (or something like that) for the corroded connection there that could be limiting the current to the block.

Next, this could be as simple as bad batteries or their cables & connections. Clean, scrape, grease, & tighten them all (both sides) and have the batteries Load Tested at a high rate (not the "dinky 100A testers the parts stores use on 4clys, our BIG batteries should be tested at 250-300A)
