pcm problem from hid or chip?

ok i recently bought tony wildman 6 position chip and a 10k HID kid from McCulloch a mechanic know really well said he can install it and has installed lots of hid kits and lots of chips. youre suppose to let the the truck run for 10 min to burn the bulbs in or something like that well he put the chip in and the hid and started it went through all the setting on the chip put back to stock turned the hid on and let it run,he was working on his truck an 10 minutes later the truck shuts off. hooked a computer to it and there was nothing there. next day went to his work"Ford dealership" and plugged it in and it was blank. so im buying a new one and want to know if anyones had this problem and how to fix it an save me 200$

Re: pcm problem from hid or chip?

When you mess with the Pcm make sure keys are out.
Hid have no effect on a ts chip... though in another related link php has a wire diagram to check a ground wire...watch video on chip Iinstall. You have to make sure contacts are clean but not overly clean and the tin is removed.

Happened to me once. I left the door open and the cab light was on while programing the pcm and it messed it up. Had to replace the pcm. I have been told that it could've been reflashed.
