Exclamation jet performance chip for 3.0L ranger

I just recently bought a performance chip for my 2000 ford ranger. The truck ran great up until i installed the prgram on my truck. It just plugs into the module located underneath my dash. The process of installing it went fine until i tried to start my truck. The truck wont start for anything. it turns over fine, gets plenty of fuel and air, but it just wont fire. it seems to me that it has something to do with the anti-theft device because it flashes rapidly (about three times per second) and then after about forty seconds it goes back to normal. i tried that procedure many times and still cant get it to start.

pull the chip back out and throw it in the trash or sell it. i had a jet chip in my ranger at one time and it did nothing, big waste of money IMO. take it out, make sure it runs again and then save your money for a tuner.

the electrical input from the chip is probably tripping the anti-theft device, making it so you can't start the truck. As 01_ranger said, sell it or better yet return it if possible.

Hmm... I was looking into the chip also. Would a tuner be a better bet then?

What all could the tuner do for me?

I have a Superchips tuner and it was a great buy. You can buy a used one on eBay for around $200. Make sure it's unlocked or it won't work, superchips will unlock it for a $100.

With a 3.0l you can't have a true performance tune, but you can change shift points and shift pressure. There is a few more options, but 4.0 and up you can change fuel to air ratio and run 91+ octane.

It's still a good buy and made a noticeable difference. There is also data logging and diagnostics on the tuner which can really cone in handy.
