    I bought an H&S Mini Maxx tuner for my 2011 6.7L. When I plug it into the OBD port, it's constantly stuck on " initializing communication". It will not go past that screen. It also briefly says it's for a Dodge Cummins. Anyone know how I can get to the main menu to select the correct truck?

    I have one in my 2011 6.7 as well. You need to call h&s tech support about the issue

    did you buy new or used?

    either way, contact H&S as said above.

    Bought it new. I tried to contact tech support but this is what their website says..

    I bought it from Amazon so I'll probablyj ist return it.

    Have you got your unlock code for me h&s yet? The tuner doesn't work unless you have your unlock for the vehicle

    It's fully unlocked. I couldn't put a code in it if I wanted to because it just freezes on the initializing communication screen.

    I would start with making sure it is up to date, if that doesn't fix the issue I would contact where you bought it

    Good idea. I'll connect it to my pc first, if nothingc changes, I'll send it back.

    I sent my defective tuner back to Amazon and ordered one from Rudys Diesel for $200 less .And this one actually works! I ordered the dpf delete from them also. Now I have a different truck, man does it run!
