DP tuner dead?
okay here's my situation:
my '01 powerstroke was impounded in late july and when my stepdad went to pick it up, it wouldn't start.
the guys @ the impound lot tried to jump it off, but to no avail. they suggested he let them tow it (for an additional 150 bucks, of course) to a ford tech they knew's house across town. he did it, and the guy promptly removed my dpt chip and jumped it off (stupid cop left my fog lights on), and it ran. he used it while i was in jail when he needed it and whatever.
i came home last night. got in it this morning, and re-installed the chip & switch (i installed it the first time and it ran like a beast for like a year up until this bs), and nothing. the little light @ the bottom right corner of the F5 display lights up when i turn the key 1 click forward, and the starter turns, but no number, no "swirl" around the lcd.. nothing. sounds like no fuel too.
any ideas fellas? i'm DYING to get back in my baby and cruise.
