SCT X3 Won't Return My Stock Tune

I Bought a SCT X3 off of a guy on here a couple days ago and just got it today. It had tunes on it so i tried to load one onto my truck. It download my stock tune fine and then tried to load the new tune on and encountered an error. now I can't get it to return the stock tune so my truck won't start (obviously) I went and copied the stock tune onto my computer desktop to make sure i still have but from what i read i have to have SCT put the stock file back on my X3??? Now my SCT say the device is "Married" but does not read a strategy, is there anyone who can fix this or do i have to wait until monday to try and get a hold of SCT???
Thanks
Bryan

SCT tech support is your only option at this point.

I had this same thing happen a few months ago. SCT Tech support had to build me a new stock program. Somehow the stock program saved on the device was corrupted so I couldn't download back to stock.

Once they build a new file for you they normally remote to your machine and load the new program on your device.

Hopefully you'll have this fixed soon...

Just give us a call and we can get you all taken care of. The only way to get the tunes off the device is for a SCT dealer to make new tunes for the truck and load them onto the device and that is how you get the tunes off the unit.
