My f250 just stalled today and it is starting to get pretty frustrating. I am assuming it is electrical and I believe it is directly related to my DP Tuner chip... but I could be wrong there. Today I put it into position 1 at a stop sign. Hit the gas and bam, stalled. I have had it happen before after switching tunes. I have also had it stall when I am backing up into my garage stall. My rear tires would hit the snow bank behind me and once again, it stalled. I had this happen about 3 times and could reproduce the symptom about 50% of the time when trying to make it stall.
I checked the connection into the PCM and it seems to be very tight. It is not strapped in with duct tape though. The cord that runs to the switch also seems to be pretty tight and I don't think it would wiggle out.
Any ideas on what could be causing this? It is really frustrating and had it happen when I went over a railroad track at about 20mph even.
