Chip Install, NO START!! HELP!

ok, I installed my chip that I bought from another forum member. Its a 6 pos TS chip. I installed it, and now I cant get the truck to start. I can get the SES, guages and ABS lights and stuff to come on, but, The "wait for start" doesnt light up. What did I do?

I aggree with quad racer about it being burned for the correct pcm code. I would also check to make sure you are getting good contact between the chip and the pcm. You may need to clean the connection point a little better on the pcm or you may have cleaned it to much so not it is not making full connection.

Did you have a chip before and did it work right? If not take the chip out and check to see if you got all of the sealant of the contacts.

oooh! never thought of that! DANG!! I am gonna try to take it out and see if she'll start. Question tho....If you scrub the contacts a little too much, not much more than maybe you should, how bad does that hurt the install?

That post was for the first one....

I do have a good snug contact on all the points I believe. I will have to ask the seller what his PCM code was. Would it make that big of a difference if his was a 2000 and mine is a early 99?

Truck never had chip in it before, or at least I wasnt told of one being in there...

It depends on how little too much you mean.

Different PCM codes could mean it won't allow the truck to start or it may start and not run right. The best thing to do is get the chip reburned by some one before you actually use it. That is if the pcm codes are differnt. Being your using a chip for a 2000 truck in an early 99 truck the pcm codes are going to be different.

well, I have a good snug fit with the chip, I will take it back out and see if she starts. Then maybe I will look at the contacts and re install it to make sure...

I believe there were several different PCM codes for those years. but as long as it is burnt for the same family of codes it should work IE PMT 1 or 2 or like NVK 1 or 2 is what i mean by family
