HELP! Truck stranded

It's thanksgiving weekend and I'm stuck in Boise (from Salt Lake City) at my son's house. I have a 2006 chev 2500 hd duramax 6.6L. We went to the restaurant last night and was going to show him the extreme mode on the edge ( he was driving). I was walking him through the programming. He interrupted the programming phase. Now it always comes up with the problem code that there is a problem with the device and to unplug it from the ODBII connector and reconnect. It will not do anything but display this code when it restarts. When trying to start the truck there is nothing; no click, no indication the starter is being energized.

Reading on the internet it sounds like the ECM has been blanked. Any thoughts or ideas? Is there any thing I can do or does it need to go to a dealership for programming? Anyone know if there is a dealership open in the Boise area this Friday?

Did you remove the programmer and disconnect both batteries for awhile. This may reset the ECM. Other wise your ECM has been wiped out.

I agree with previous post. Try pulling program out unhook programmer from truck and unhook the batteries for 15 minute and start over from scratch. If there is any thing I can help with please PM me I live in Boise and have close relationship with a lot of the shops in the area. Good luck. There is dealers open on Friday but there is all so shops in town that do reflashing to the computers. I have not been to the dealer for updates since the truck was new.

I appreciate all the posts... I did disconnect the edge programmer and disconnected the batteries for 10 minutes. Checked fuses too. Unfortunately, I think I have to wait until Friday morning and have it towed to a shop. I'll let everyone know tomorrow the results. Again thanks for the help on thanksgiving day.

I took the truck to Peterson Chevrolet in Boise, Idaho. The diagnosis was a fried ECM; grounds were good, and all else checked out okay. Surprised by the price however; over $1000 for replcement and reprogram. The ECM module is $679. I am going to pay the core charge, and take the old module to edge when I get home. It shouldn't fry the module when the edge is downloading the data. Frustrating!

Yeah the edge is disconnected and going to stay that way. I'll call edge Monday and see what they say. I have truck back, $1100 bucks poorer, but life is good again.
