Mini max help. Traded and forgot to return to stock

Hey guys made a dum move on my part. Traded my 09 6.4 for a 2013 a few days ago and forgot to return it to stock. Got everything else off the truck just forgot to return to stock. I was going to sell that tuner, a spartan tuner and flo pro egr delete that's brand new to be able to buy a tuner for my 13. I was running mini max. Is there any way it would still work or someway I could have it reset or anything? Any help is highly thanked

Dude get a friend to go test drive your old truck at the dealership you traded it in at. On the test drive, reset it.

If not, you're screwed. Can't unlock them anymore. Good luck...

Yea, or that truck is sitting in the lot until a transport takes it to auction, big dealer by me, that's almost a week.

Tell them you think you left a garage door opener or sungalsses in there. Have your salesman take you to the truck, bring tuner, explain, done. They made money already off you they don't care what happens now so long as the truck runs.

Go at midnight and bust the window out. Then shove a large screw driver into the ignition and click it on. This will power up the ECU. Now reset the code and split. Don't leave the screw driver...

I would call the dealer, tell them you need to see something on the truck and go and return it to stock, IF the dealership hasn't reflashed the computer... If they have re-flashed, or you can;t get to the truck, you're kind of SOL because H&S will not unlock a RACE tuner as a Race tuner, they will unlock it for $200, but it will only function as a Street (not delete capable) tuner. Hope you get it worked out! Also, even if you do get the tuner unlocked from your old truck, it will not just plug right in and work on a 2013. When H&S stopped making off road tuners, they had not released 2013 tuning yet...
