Tune Problem. Help :(

I just bought a Diablo Predator off of the internet and when i went to install it, it said it could not be installed!

So i went to download the original tune and to my suprise once it hit 80% the tuner said it could not be installed. I'm at a loss of what to do, i've unplugged everything i could think of, and now my car won't start.

Please.. help?

The Predators sold on ebay are NOT supported even by Diablosport , If you go to www.diablosport.com you will see why

Did you pull the fuses 46/61 when you tried to load the stock tune file back in. If you get the stock tune back in I would use that Predator any more and send it back

May have to try installing it several times before it'll take.
If that doesn't work, your off to the dealer to have it reflashed by them...
stay away from the ebay tuning crap, its just that, crap.
