2002, Ford Focus SVT
U7144 with 8t1 soft

I also tried to pull fuses 46 and 61

Issue:
I tried to reflash my Procharger tune with a new one. Once I got screen saying \"writing vehicle\" it stopped writing right on 0% and from then I got only option to restore my original backup, which I tried, but it\'s the same story. Always getting an error when it is trying to write (again at 0%). My dashboard now has only ------ on odometer and car even crank. Let me say that I did use reflash successfully at least 30 times before and only once I had this issue 3 years ago. At that time it was a week battery, but now I have a new one, si it can\'t be. I even put charger on the battery while I was trying this again and again. So I think, my only option is to FORCE original backup where I need a password from Diablosport. And here is my problem. I\'m in the Central Europe now, tried to call your tech support and was like over an hour on hold. As I'm calling from Europe this is pretty expensive and I can hold as long as local guys that has free calls. Vic from tech support really tried to help me (and I thank him), but he was overloaded with calls. Is there any other option I can use ? Like send an email with the code from predator and you will send me password back ? Or ? Please help me.

pull the ABS fuse and try it again, if that does not work, post the key for the force here and I can give you the password.
Do not unplug the predator until we give you the password.
