Neighbor's DP F5 chip

My neighbor has an 02' F250 SuperCab 7.3L. He purchased with gauges and a DP F5 chip. A while back, he was driving over to my parent's house and his truck shut down on him only 0.5 miles away from my dad's shop. The truck would not start. They pulled it into my dad's shop/garage, pulled the codes from the computer and it gave some sort of code, not sure. I was not there for this so I am not sure of the exact details. They then decided to pull the chip from the PCM and tried starting it. It fired right up. So the owner decided to pull the chip completely out and all of the gauges.

Question 1: Why do you think the truck wouldn't start with the chip installed and then it did start when they pulled it out? I thought that maybe the chip was not properly seated on the pcm and when he was driving down the gravel road, it slipped off a little bit and the truck shut down....but I am no expert.

Question 2: I have an 2002 F350, Crew Cab w/ 7.3L. He told me this weekend that he would give me the chip because he has no use for it. What are the chances of me getting it to work in my truck? any issues I should look into? I am not sure which tunes are installed on the chip.

Thanks for the ideas

So long as you have like trucks, IE auto, same PCM family (which you do) the chip will work fine.

Its hard to say. It could have come off the PCM, but that is unlikely to cause that issue. Could have been something completely unrelated to the Chip. Could have defaulted to a no start setting or something to that effect, but IIRC they will not shut down if put in a no start, just not restart.

More then likely it was just a CPS or IPR issue that went away... And someone over reacted, pulled the chip and is ready to hand you something worth a few hundred bucks...

Sounds like I should get my hands on the chip. Do these chips ever fail? I just want to make sure that if I install it in my truck, something won't go wrong. Thanks!
