So here's the longer story:
This past weekend I was going to let a friend see how his truck performed using my SuperChips 1705. I put my truck in "stock programming and then we plugged into his truck (mine is a 97 PSD his is a 94 PSD). Everthing was going fine we went through the prompts for programming w/o towing, no speed limit, the programmer saved his programming and began loading the "tuned program". It got to the end and listed and error (22?) and said to contact Superchips This is where it got bad..... we tried to check what program was in his truck but the tuner would not read his truck it just kept posting the error. His truck started so we thought his truck was fine. THEN, we took the tuner back to my 97 and when we plugged it in it went through the normal checks we then selected tuning and the programmer started installing "stock program". After this my truck would not start and no error was detected. We verified that his truck is in "stock mode" by putting the tuner back on his truck, running diagnostic & clearing any errors, then going into program mode and selecting program "Return to Stock" selected yes and it completed programming his truck to stock and his truck runs fine. Now when the Supertuner is plugged in to my truck it reads out "not original vehicle/program Error10) and doesn't start. I had it towed to the dealer and According to the local Ford dealer I've lost everything in my PCM and it needs to be replaced. Superchips is unable to help unless I send them my tuner and PCM. Dealer wanted $835 to replace the PCM. I originally thought the dealer would be able to reload the stock programing but this dealer say they can't (see first post) and the only fix is to install a new PCM.
Thanks for the info so far.....
