need programmer help please

i had a 2000 7.3 and bought a hypertech power programmer III that worked great. I then put the truck back to stock and sold it. When i now try and use the same programmer on my 99 7.3 ford after the reading of the computer i get "error 6D" and then am instructed to call hypertech. So what does this mean for me? Am i going to be able to use this on my 99? The 2000 is long gone.

Thank You so much for any help

Hypertech programmers are kinda touchy. Make sure that the batteries are fully charged first off. Put them on a trickle charger overnight just to be sure.

Then when you do it...make sure there is no other power draw taking place. By that...make sure the door is closed, you don't have a cell phone charger in the powerport...stuff like that. Then try it again.

And welcome to the site.

When attempting to try again with programmer could smell a burning smell under hood while reading was taking place? What is going on?

This programmer says it is for 99-2000 7.3's. It was special ordered from a performance shop here in Missouri. This is an early production 99 model?
