I returned mine to stock this afternoon, and am also having this same problem. The tuner was an H & S XRT Pro. If I find the answer I will post.

If you guys returned to the stock tuning, then you need to make sure the stock exhaust is installed. Without the stock exhaust, the stock tuning file will not allow the truck to start unless all the sensors check out.

If you want to get past this, you can plug at minimum, the rear-most exhaust temp sensor into the factory harness. It doesn't need to be in the exhaust, it just needs to be plugged in to complete the circuit. If it doesn't start at that point, re-tune to the DPF delete tune, and see if it starts. If yes, then make sure that you have the rear sensor plugged in, then try the stock tune again.

Let me know if you still have issues.

My DPF has been re-installed and the sensor plugged in prior to "return to stock". I tryed to re-install the tune as suggested, but the XRT Pro will not recognize that the key is in the run position in reloading tune sequence.

Send me an email with all your contact information and all the information from the "show settings" menu. Also, update your tuner to the latest software. Even if the T.V. shows the latest version, update it again to ensure there are no file corruptions.

I will try to contact you tomorrow while I am at the shop to help you with a solution.

Thanks to the extra effort from the guys at H & S, it appears that I had a bad file re-write.
