OMG, now what do I do?

Ok, so I've been towing a 5000lb trailer with 5000 lbs of stuff in it all weekend (which not to mention, came unhooked over a speedbump and flew off, starting my bad week), so I had my SCT on the towing tune, well I just got back from the grocery store, and surprise surprise, my tuner was in the backseat floorboard, and a gallon of milk was set on top of it, plugged it in and ofcourse the screen was cracked and solid blue, so in a fit of rage, because it's been one of those weeks, I punched it a few times, and slung it out of the truck causing that much more damage.

So now, even if I order a new one, the tow tune is stuck on my truck from that last one, and it would need to be returned to stock, WTF do I even do about this? I'm so over this week, when it rains boy does it pour.

You can talk with SCT and they can rewrite a stock file for you. Had to do this to mine when my SCT lost power while swapping tunes.

Yeah but the thing is, the screen is broken, so I can't go through the menus to do any tuning.

If I get another programmer, I don't think it's going to work because the old one is stuck on my truck now, since I have no screen, I can't take it off.

Wish it could be that easy. But the programmer has a case of the rattles right now... me having one of those weeks where everything goes wrong, ontop of moving, going grocery shopping and opening the door to a jar of salsa falling out of the truck and breaking on my big toe with me in flip flops, then finding my programmer with a cracked screen = me punching it about 10x, then slinging it across the driveway...

Called my mother in law, she works for ford, I'm just gonna have it reflashed, and probably buy another SCT from eric or something with some custom tunes..

Anyway, like the other said, get it reflashed from ford and buy a new programmer.
