The chip wouldn't break down that code and add more.

One of two things here. It has the wrong calibrations, or it's making poor contact.

I was asking only because the 380 code is gone but the other three appear with the chip installed and they are similar codes(i think)

I don't know what else I can do to get the contacts any cleaner. I was told by the company that I bought the chip from that it's the right program or else the truck wouldn't start. Not sure if that is true.

I may just try to return it unless anyone else has any ideas.

Thanks

Okay. That is a Cali model (DPC-452). It really sounds like they put Federal model (DPC-422) tunes on the chip.

This is not true. A truck with a DPC-452 PCM will start and run just fine with DPC-422 tunes on it. As long as the weather is warm (glow plugs will not work correctly running DPC-422 tunes on a DPC-452 PCM). The biggest issue you will notice is the exact one you are seeing... SES light with a bunch of glow plug codes. I know this first hand, as I have a DPC-452 truck and have run DPC-422 tunes on it.

Not sure who burnt the chip for you, but it sounds like they may not have much knowledge on the subject.
