DP Tuner leave a footprint?

Well after having my Tuner installed for a week I think I toasted my tranny, atleast it sounds like the converter is on its way out. I put a re-man Ford tranny in this truck back in Feb. so it is under warranty, but you know Ford is going to F#@^ with me because I put it in myself. Reputable tranny guy around here suggested that I go straight to Ford without him looking at it, said if it is under warranty let them deal with it before he gets his shop involved. So when I take out my tuner, will Ford be able to find a footprint and claim the tuner toasted my converter? Thanks

No. Just make sure you clear all codes & take your DP out before you take it down there. That way they have nothing to blame it on & refuse the work.

I have been in to Ford a couple times since this, each time I remove the tuner and disconnect the battery to erase memory. Each time Ford tells me that it looks like my batteries have been disconnected before they do what I need I tell them that my battery charger is mounted on my work bench and I need to remove the batteries to charge them

No problems

Next time, if you want the Ford dealer to see if there are any pending codes, you should disconnect your batteries & then take it for a good drive; maybe about a half hour or so. This way your truck can regain it's parameters & if there are any important codes, you'll have them.
