Need help. My truck won't start.

I just installed a 4" Flo Pro downpipe-back exhaust on my truck. My H&S Minimaxx won't be here until Tuesday. I had time today so I figured I'd install the exhaust then not drive it until I get the tuner. I just tried to start the truck to move it out of my garage and it just clicks. I checked the batteries and they are fine. I tried plugging the egt sensors back in and still nothing. I did a search but didn't come up with an answer. Anyone have any ideas?

I couldn't get the egt sensor out of the dpf so I propped the dpf under the truck to plug in the sensor. I disconnected the batteries for a few minutes then hooked them back up and the truck started right up. I unhooked the egt on the dpf so I could move the truck then shut it off. Now it won't start again. I will just wait for my tuner to come in and see if that works. It sounds ****in' awesome though!

Turns out that the egt sensor on the dpf has to be plugged in and if you unplug it, you have the disconnect the batteries to reset the computer. It's out of my way now so I won't be driving it until my tuner comes in on Tuesday.

if you remove your factory exhaust and try to start it without the sensors it will throw codes and not start......you can run a DPF on tune with your max but you can not delete without the tune..... always load and set up the tune before removing any of the exhaust hardware.....
