2010 F350 (H&S tuned & deleted)-No Start???
2010 F350 with 16,xxx miles. Tuned with H&S Mini Maxx and DPF deleted.
Had odd situation today. Truck was tuned/ deleted in January and never had any issues til today...... Came out store and went to start truck.....nothing. No crank, no buzz, no nothing. Cycle the key and it was just flat dead. I waited few minutes, tried again and NOTHING. I did notice the traction control light (off) was on dash as if it was turned off but other than that, no other lights. Was ready to call tow truck and out of desperation, I decided to mess with tuner (H&S mini maxx). I reinstalled H&S tune and then the truck started up. I started and stopped it several times in parking lot and all appeared to be fine. Just to be sure, I drove to autopart store and had both batteries tested....they were both fine (12.8v & 12.7v). Went to leave autoparts store and it happended again...but this time it started but my guages on dash were acting crazy...bouncing all around. I shut off truck and then tried to restart and it went dead again. No start until I re downloaded H&S tune again. Finally got it running and headed home (about 25 miles) no issues. Once home, I restarted and drove around few miles...no issues now???
Just as precaution, I did update the memory card using the H&S updater and loaded back into my programmer then re downloaded to truck. I also noticed the HDMI cable for tuner I had in truck was frayed so I replaced it with new one. Also checked for any codes (DTC) but there wasnt any???
Any ideas guys? Just a fluke gremlin? Programmer issue? Truck issue?
