I recently purchased a new ts chip and I had cleaned everything disconnected the batteries had keys out etc the ts card that came with it had no writing on it whatsoever so I had installed and removed it several times.
I install it and get no start,no wait to start,ses light stays on but I have my old sct x3 tuner which I know should be able to read codes? It says unable to read...unless I can't connect to obd port while chip installed...
I remove chip plug it all bag in and everything works fine? Could the chip be blank?

That's normal. Sounds like the chip is blank. Either try and return it or have it reburned

I called and talked to a ts csr and he too me that the 1180406 is a programmed chip for stock high idles 50 75 100 140 and the 1180401 is the unburnt that can have tunes installed but I believe they might have me send it back

Send it back and have them test it or reburn it. . You did clean both sides of the pcm right?

You can try and sell it but who knows if it works. You can try and reburn it but that's just extra money. But the tunes you have now should just be stock ts tunes and they kind of suck. So paying a little more for better tunes might interest you.

They Defenitly amp up my truck tho that's for sure maybe I'll see if I can find a good person to burn tunes on this one because the card came blank so i don't know if anything is even on there to begin with unless the chip was just bad to begin with
