MPGuino problem (fixed)

Ordered a kit version MPGuino a month ago, it came in Thursday and put it together last night. Today I tried installing it. I wired it up to the wiring off the ecm and plugged it in and it came right up working. I started the car and it was showing the injector signal was working fine. As soon as I started to move the car it reset. So I turned it off and rechecked my wires and everything is properly wired up. I took the easy way out and jacked a wheel up so I could spin the tire in the garage. Any time I spin the tire and it gets a vss tick it resets or locks up. I messed with it for a few minutes before it corrupted the avr chip. So I gave up since it was getting cold out.

I had to reload the avr completely, it scrambled the bootloader even. Not a big deal I have everything I could need to work with Atmel chips. I am getting ready to figure this thing out. Other than checking the vss signal path is there any other ideas anyone has for stuff to check on?
