Had a no start with fresh tune/deletes and another odd issue
Last Friday I picked my truck up from the shop that did a dpf delete, cat delete, muffler delete, installed an air box and an h&s mini max turner.
I drove the truck home, while driving I was playing with the tuner on the interstate trying wild to mild to hot to see if my fuel mileage changed. i put the tuner to "hot" and the engine fan came on. it stayed on until i reached my destination...I don't see how the two could be related but looking for thoughts, ideas...
I was at my destination for about 3 hours. It was rainy, chilly, and just down right miserable outside. I went out to the truck and it wouldn't start. I thought I was hearing a faint click, but nothing more. The truck had plenty of battery juice. I hit the starter a few times with no results. Ended up having it towed home.
I called my buddy from the shop where I had the work done and asked him what he thought. He told me to dump the tuner tune and reinstall the factory tune. I did this and it started. Now, I didn't try to start it the next morning before dumping the tune. The truck sat in my garage all night and dried out. So I don't know if this is tuner related or something else by the cold rainey weather or?
I have reloaded the tuner tune, drove it about 40 miles on saturday. Played with the tuner. Laid four black marks on dry pavement with the hot tune...went back to mild tune for economy. Started and stopped it about 6 times...no further problems. Any thoughts?
My buddy is having calling h&s today to ask them if they have had any issues like this before.
