Have you tried reflashing with the Spartan again since it lost connection. Can't really see how what you described would fry the TCM.

Yes you fried the TCM. Exact same thing happened to me and I couldnt figure out what the problem was for the longest time. Long story short, I was downloading my H&S, batteries died and the exact same time is was on the transmission tune, and fried the TCM. Bought new batteried and had the truck towed to the dealer, warranty covered the rest. But I know H&S and maybe Spartan can get you a new TCM if your not still under warranty for maybe $400 and I dont think its too hard to install.
