Before you installed the chip did you clean the metal tabs on the PCM? If you dont clean the "goop" off the tabs to where they are copper looking then most likely you are not getting a connection. I purchased an Apten Chip and it did the same thing.....but my problem is because my PCM was reporgrammed and does not match the original code.

Did you buy it directly from a dealer or did you buy it from another owner?

If you bought it from another owner the PCM codes may not match.
