What's happened to Patriot Diagnostics?

I need to get ahold of their tech support. Their old email address is invalid, they are no longer on facebook and I can find anything about them online.

that's not Patriot, that's a website that sells everything diesel related.

Given all this (and I couldn't find anything about them being bought out, only that they bought Spartan Diesel 2 yrs ago), I would doubt that they are still around. Seems strange that there isn't some remnant of them having been around somewhere.

Powerstrokearmy.com had a post that started in 2017 and went into last month, that said that Patriot is/was gone. I cannot verify that beyond that thread though.

One person in there said that they EPA got them. I don't find that hard to believe, again can't verify that and I don't want to turn it into my normal diatribe on the risks of tuning/deleting on these trucks.

I'm with you, it's like there is no trace of them online. It's odd. Patriot had a facebook page that I followed and even a gmail account for their tech support. Neither of them exist today. They helped me update my Spartan nDash to the newest version last summer. Now I have some questions about throttle response through their tunes and can't find anyone with knowledge about it to help me.

Considering those are free to setup and keep and they don't exist now, chances are they are totally gone in the Patriot Diagnostics iteration.

Maybe go through the engine specific forum here or it seems that Powerstroke Man 6.4 over at powerstrokearmy.com may be able to help you there (I hate suggesting a different site, but without cleaning through the forums myself to see if there is/was anyone here with a little more juice with Patriot Diag., that's all I have to go on at this point), but I don't know how active that user is there as well. May or may not get back to you in a "timely" manner.

I would say, depending on what device that you have, it may have some ancillary uses (gauges etc), but as far as tunes go, might be up that well known creek (just based on what my cursory googling came up with). Maybe find someone that can unlock it and create some other tunes for you, but that'll cost I'm sure. Even if you were to get ahold of someone from Patriot, I'm sure it'll cost if they have gone under and it's just a former employee trying to help out.

Thanks a lot for the info! You're the only one that's responded to that, and similar questions, on a few different forums.

I saw your posts and I to cant find Patriot diagnostics anywhere. I have a 15 f250 with a nguage and currently ndash by patriot. Spade was their tech guy. Ive called and emailed with no response. I did find a page with the complaint by epa vs. Spartan. 4 million in fines. Not sure what to do now. I am trying to find the lastest updates for my ndash. Spade said I was supposed to have on screen tuning but I dont think I have the file. Went to fb to upload it and their page was gone. I saw that you updated yours, do you know what version you have? I am new to the forum not sure how all this works.

Patriot went bye-bye as the others in the past.
