Did you reset the truck to stock before taking it in? My guess is your using a programer, sent the truck in with a tune loaded, FORD flashed the truck to a newer program and your programer is now locked due to the inconsistency. Talk to the programmer manufacturer to see if they can unlock it.

no i reset everything back to bone stock and they covered the transmission under the warranty. they knew that I had a programmer on the truck because of how the transmission was torn up but they had no proof of the programmer being on the truck. So i believe that they have somehow locked me out of the ecu and i need to figure out how to get it unlocked
