    I can't find the thread .. but someone had AEM done , truck turned into a turd ,
    was a canadian guy , went for a ride with his son across the border , to GDE located in MI ,
    GDE told him the AEM was only " HALF applied " .... maybe your AEM tune was not done properly ...
    ..
    sort of a interupted update
    get the dealer to do it again , once at least .
    ..
    very suspicious that some get AEM and fell the truck is fine ,others lose all fun in driving

    Edit : Found it , post # 30 in here :https://www.ram1500diesel.com/forum/...ter-gde-2.html

    Thanks so much for the support! Sorry to have a mad reaction to his post. It felt bossy and insensitive.

    I have many friends in Oregon and have lived there numerous times. Nevada is about 1.5 hours away. What would I do? Contact a private mechanic to install it? I know of people who will be happy to receive a package in both states.

I can't help you on the topic you asked about because I will not being doing the AEM due to it already being tuned and deleted but I can totally relate on a much more personal level as to how important these "tools" are to my livelihood and sanity. I'd hate to lose that sense of security as you did.
    Many thanks

    they also have to pay , , then you pay them back , or in advance , once actual module is replaced with GDE module , put old one in return box ,
    and return to GDE for core refund , (+/- $650 for that core ) , ship from that state.

    I have the same experience and I just dropped off the truck at the dealer for them to troubleshoot. I'll let you know if it is successful.

    The dealer claims that I'm the first person to complain so assuming they are not lying, I'm hopefull that it was an install issue and they can fix it.

    Thank you for your lack of support and lack of understanding of my situation.

    Keeping a car for life is not stupid when you know exactly what that car has gone through, what has been done to it, and you have a mechanic you trust;. I have saved tens of thousands of dollars doing this for decades. I am not selling the truck. I am going to fight to get it returned to its original condition. This is BS. No one can unilaterally ruin my truck and cost me thousands of dollars.

    Of course the truck is not real. But the truck gave me a sense of security and long-term utility and it plugged a necessary hole. I want those things back.

    Thank you for reminding me why I got divorced.
    Wowza...slow down..a) no one called you stupid and b) if the truck gave you a sense of security and plugged a necessary hole, I am sorry if a truck can do that.

    You asked for opinions. I gave you one. You said you can’t afford to drive the truck, I gave you my 2 cents to move on.

    My apology if it’s not what you wanted to hear. Please do what makes you happy. If it’s chasing FCA to fix your truck, that’s your time and you decide where to spend your time.

    Best of luck....didn’t mean to remind you why you got divorced, but that was not the intent when you asked for “what to do?”....

    Moving on......

    Peace. Take care. I apologize if your intentions were positive but the post felt a bit demeaning and insensitive. Others are helping me trouble shoot. It seems there are some options if the dealer won't help me.

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    Do you think the truck is getting harmed while I drive it in this condition?

    If I go into the dealer for other issues, do I need to hide that that has been done?

    Effect on warranty?

    I am wondering about keeping one board for the dealer and this GDE one to use all the time... she said, flirting with the law....
