1996 Powerstroke DP Tuner issue.

I purchased a DP tuner used from a guy who had a 1998. Tuner worked fine in his truck. I attempted to install it into my 1996 and It will not start. The WTS light stays on and it will just crank. If I move the dial to the fifth position the WTS light goes off and the Check engine light comes on. The truck still just carnks and will not start. I double and triple checked to make sure the chip mounting surface is clean. No luck. Can any body help.

The truck runs fine with out the chip installed.

Thx in advance.

Could be because you bought a chip for a truck that dosn't exist.

I would give Jody a call, he might have an answer for you.

Yeah no kidding!! I am gonna give him a buzz in the a.m. I spent the whole day with this stupid thing... In and out, In and out... Oh well I guess even I gotta send it out and have it burnt, no biggie! Heard tons of good things about this company thats why I picked it up. The guy I bought it from was obviously not an honest man. Thx.
