Spartan install problems

I installed my programmer and dpf delete pipe tonight and now my truck won't crank over. I searched the forums and found that some had luck by cranking the truck by jumping the solenoid on the starter. I tried that and it started, but it will only run for 4-5 seconds and then die. I have tried repeting about 20 times and can't get it to stay running. I am going to try to load another tune and see iff that makes a difference. If anyone has any ideas I am all ears.
Thanks

Did you reconnect all the sensors that you unhooked? There is one at the end of the dpf that you must install in the new pipe and the other just in front of the dpf that has the bracket on it.. Make sure they are properly connected, and not damaged...

Try putting it back to stock ans scan for codes. If you have codes, clear them and reload your tune.

That sounds completely like a exhaust sensor issue. Either one is damaged or not plugged in properly. That is exactly what it does if a sensor is unplugged. Recheck the DPF install first. If you had the key on while installing the pipe it will set a code,until you clear it the truck wont run(even after the problem is corrected).You can clear DTC's even with the program installed.

Thanks for the replies guys. I didn't unplug any sensors to install the dpf pipe. I removed the dpf sensor before removing the filter, I saw no need to unplug it. I tried to load the stock programming, but the dashdaq said that it failed to communicate. I also tried to load the 150hp tune with the same results. Hopefully Matt will chime in and give me some direction.

I checked for codes withe the dashdaq, I will try to check for codes with a scanner when I get back to the shop tomorrow. The dashdaq showed no codes.
I will let you know what I find.

did you turn the key off in the middle of programing by mistake. if so most likely your ecm and pcm are fried. it happen to a friend when his wife turn the key off in the middle of programing. just a word to everybody DO NOT TURN THE KEY OFF WHEN PROGRAMING..... You can turn the key off only when the dash daq has given you the hit ok button and remove key prompt....

How did you remove the sensor without unplugging it. I would think that the twisting motion might have damaged the wire (if it was still plugged in) and could be causing the no start issue.
