Default Unichip go boom

Besides telling me to get another EM I need some advice about my unichip. I was driving the other day after some snow about 30mph or less when suddenly, nothing RPM's just drop and car shuts off. I pull over and crank it a few times, nothing, like theres no gas or spark. Pull the carpet and unplug the chip, car starts right up. Anyone had this happen or any idea why? Haven't tried to plug it back in yet but I will soon, I checked all the wiring and connections all seem fine to me. Any insight would be appreciated, thanks, CHRIS........

Tried it again tonight and nothing, just cranked over.

I had this problem as well. I rewired the unichip, and reinstalled it without the emi adapter. I'm pretty sure all the wiring was good the first time though. Then, I found a little hole in the hose that runs into the bottom of my mbc. The one with the little brass restrictor in it. Anyways, I replaced that at the same time. I'm not sure which fixed the problem, but I haven't had any problems since.
