TS chip install gone bad

I bought a used TS chip and tried to install it last night. I followed the directions very precise and put it all back together. And I noticed right away that I have no wait to start light. I pulled it back out again cleaned the connections and still the same thing. I finally took the chip out and still no start. I searched and keeping coming up wih the same thing bad pcm. I hope this is not the situation I really don't want to buy another pcm. I would appreciate any help you guys can be I need to get it back on the road.

Disconnect the batteries for 15 minutes and try to start it. Well, reconnect the batteries.

If you don't drink Dos XX's, you need to start today.
