Stalling questions

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.

Thanks!

I do have HIDS thanks to the 05-07 conversion kit. It looks like half the truck is jerry rigged as the hi/low beam switch is reversed too (high-beam light is on, low beams are working... no dash light, high-beams are on)

contact dp-tuner about this, you need an upgraded cable.

they had issues with "cheap HID kits" causing a/your truck to stall.

The cable is improperly shielded which is why the HID's kill your truck.

Check your IPR on lower rear of high pressure pump,the sensor has a tin nut that can back off allowing sensor to separate causing the symptoms you are having( accelerating from stop sign rear tires hitting a stop in reverse)
