VGT SWITCH? (just for idle)

So I really like the sound of the VGT actuator being open at idle so I rigged up a switch off the ground into the cab. My intentions were to just use this at idle I don't care about any of the smoke nonsense nor running down the street for better mileage like some say works. My question is when I unplugged the actuator the truck went into this mode where it wouldn't start. The switch works but throws a couple codes and now the truck seems to have trouble creating boost. It used to run around 40sh psi now before codes are thrown it will barely get to 30? Do i need to just buy a new pigtail and make it back to factory? Or is there something else I need to look at? I have an H&S Mini Max tuner. If I knew it was going to be this much trouble just for idle sound I definitely wouldn't have messed with it :doh:
