Exclamation Spartan Emergency

I just installed the DPF/Cat Delete, air box, and Spartan. After installing the 250 tune I proceeded to follow the on screen instructions telling me to turn the key off for 10 seconds, then start the truck. Did that, started no problem and let it run for a while. Turned the engine off and went about my business at the house, then later I got into my truck and tried to start it but it wouldn't even turn over!! Had plenty of power, lights, radio, etc... all accessories worked. Installed the 125 tune, same results. Installed stock with DPF delete, same results. Disconnected both battery cables for 30 minutes to let it reset, reconnected and still the engine will not turn over. It doesn't even try...did notice the glow plug indicator is not staying on the normal amount of time either. Frustrated I returned truck back to stock calibration completely removed Spartan and it started just fine, have tried it several times and no problems. What caused the Spartan tunes to not start the truck? What do I do? Please help. Thank you.

Call Spartan today and see what they can do to help. I have no idea why it is doing that. Probably programming issue.

Check the bungs in your exhaust. This is typical of one of the sensors being out of the exhaust. Put it/them back in and you should be good to go.

Sensor part number?

Does anyone know what the part number is for the sensor after the dpf? I bought one yesterday from the ford dealer but it was a rectangular connector, the sensors on my truck have round connectors.

Definitely caused from not having a sensor plugged in. I'll see if I can find the part# for you.

8C3Z-9J460-B sensor

That should get you what you need. That is the entire assembly but that will get you started if you want just the sensor itself but not sure you can buy it that way.

Thanks for posting that up

I think there should be a sticky in this forum with part #'s like this.
