Need to go to work!!

I took out my DP chip yesterday. Keys were nowhere near the truck. All seemed to go well, but in my over confidence, I didn't check to see if it started after that. Now I need to go to work.....
-It turns over but wont start.
-The glow plugs do their thing.
-When I crank it the tach and speedo both go from zero to maxed out. I dont know if this is normal or not.

My best guesses to how I screwed up are not putting it back to stock before taking it out, do you have to do that?

I didn't disconnect the batteries, do i have to do that?

Anything I can try or do I need a new PCM? HELP!

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

yeah ive done it a couple times now. all the pins are good. however, the last time i went to take it out, as i disconeccted it the dash beeped at me. So I think I must have needed to disconnect the batteries
But DPs instructions dont say to do that. Is it supposed to be common sence?
Do you know if they can test my PCM with it out if the truck?
Thanks

no they cant.... only way i can think is to have it in the truck and have someone run a scan on it with a GOOD scan tool (AE or snap on)

Take a look at this thread, this is what happened to me when I messed with my PCM plug under the hood and, inadvertently, disturbed the fuseable links connector...

POTENTIAL ELECTRICAL CORROSION if your truck is like mine......
