Homemade Pressure sensor fooler not workin

I installed my homemade pressure sensor fooler this morning and i still get CEL and overhead display dinging. I followed all the advice and intructions from yall. I didnt have the 110 resistor so i put a 100 and a 10 in line together. And used the 390 for the other side. Used basic elec connecter with the forks and broke one side off to use as pins, fit well. I did the dpf delete a month ago and just now figured out to do the pressure sensor. its been unpluged since then. WHERE DID I GO WRONG?

Do you have a code clearing device? If not you can do 5 key swithces to clear it. Just like the 3 to read only more.
I believe I posted a simple step by step on this somewhere. I'll see if I can find it for you.

Found it:
Try this:
Install all 3 egt foolers
Install 110/390 PS fooler (or the H&S fooler)
Unplug EGR
O2 Sensors installed
Turn on the key. DO not start
Clear codes with your scanner
Turn off the truck
Turn back on and this time start.
You should then only have the EGR code and CEL
Should not have the OHD message either.

You have to have a code clearing device in order to get rid of the overhead message, but if you are unlucky like me the message will come back in about 300 miles or so and then you will have to clear them again. I have tried every solution posted with no luck I still have to clear my codes to get rid of the message every now and then. I bought my DTC reader for about $75 from Advance Auto. I will be buying an XRT or Smarty once all the dust settles between the two and we have a clear winner

Tried the five key thing and nothing. Someone on here used a 100 ohm instead of the 110. Maybe try that?

Does your DTC reader clear codes or just show them?

I just may go buy one now, did you ever get a pressure sensor fooler to work for you?

my overhead was always dinging.

I think its fixed now by unhooking the batterys for a while. It isnt going off in my yard if I let it idle for 20 minutes like it would before, but I havent driven my truck down the road to be sure.

I only drive it when I go racing and thats not until next friday saturday sunday.

I had 12 codes on my code ready and 8 codes on my pmt before I disconnected the batterys!

08 6.7 4x4 Dually Crew always towing. 5"ss turbo back, PMT gauge, Smarty. AFE intake, mp-8, Wing master wing, 90 gal. auxilary tank/tool box,fire stone bags in back, on board air comp. Card custom intake horn and 3.5 tube! Air Dog 150

I never did get the fooler to work from H&S or the home brew app.

Casey at H&S just recently though I should splice the ground wire on there fooler and connect it to the frame. It will be a while before I have time to do this and put another 300 miles on. I will let you know when/if this works.

I wish either Edge Insight or the Bullydog Watchdog would clear the codes on startup like there PMT and Attitude products do. Then I would have no need to buy an expensive Smarty or XRT. I think there are a lot of us who just want to do the deletes and don't want all the added power this kits offer to be code free. They will tell you that just to run the XRT or Smarty on the stock setting with no DPF, but what a huge waste of money just to have the CEL off. What it boils down to is about $700 or more to have a permanent fix when they could just add a feature on the insight or Watchdog to clear the codes on startup. Both of these products are under $300 plus you get all the gages you need.

Im like you man, dont want the extra horsepower (it has plenty). Just need something to keep everything else workin right. But I'm gonna try the unhookin the batteries thing next.
