SCT Tuner won't load on my truck?

I just got a SCT sf3 for my truck and when I hook it up it says vehicle not recognized. I have tried several times calling SCT for tech support but haven't got through yet. The truck did just get out of the shop last week for a new FICM. Is is because they reflashed the truck that it won't work?

Sounds like it needs to be unlocked, although the X3's are supposed to unlock automatically. Chris

I'm a little more country than that...

Did you check to see if you have the same strategy as before? Did you return to stock before you took it in? I am supposed to get mine back tomorrow with studs and egr delete. He said he is going to give me the latest flash also. Mine is at stock, so I hope mine will load when I get it back.

I never had the programmer on the truck before I took it in to get worked on. I got the tuner while the truck was in the shop and took it out of the box last night when I tried to load it.

Who did you get it from? According to innovative diesel There is supposidly 2 different sct x3 tuners. One of them will not work on the 08+ trucks. From your screen name I would assume 1. You in the wrong section. 2. You drive a 08+ 6.4 truck.

I don't have the 08 truck anymore, have a 2006 6.0L now. Guess I need a new username.

Fill out your signature. I'm not 100% on the x3. But go to sct and look thru thr faq's there should be a place on the menu of the tuner that says status. For the x2 it will say stock if the tuner is unlocked and aftermarket if it is locked. Another issue could be that you do not have the latest updates on the tuner which could also give you the same message.

Figured out the problem, they sent me an X3 instead of a SF3.
