Check your fuses for the lighter or aux power outlet, one of them also powers up the obd2 port that the tuner is plugged into. I had issues with my new sf3 several times while trying to load tunes, it made my truck not run and lost the stock file. Had to send my tuner in to sct for warranty repair. Got it back awhile ago but have not used it yet, gun shy for now. The supposedly stock file that sct got my truck running again with, which has pilot injection activated as it did back in 03', runs and shifts good for all around performance and towing, so I've left it alone for now. Sct replaced the bootloader in my device, said it was faulty. The sct tech support was very helpful with me, I would think they could resolve your issue. You may end up having to send it in like I did. Harry

I just read your other thread, so I guess you got your tuner to load now. I guess you can disregard my above post. Harry
