Just tryed this out on mine.

https://appcar-diagfca.com/en/

Works perfect. Disabled DRLs (I have Canadian ram and wanted HIDs). I also enabled Fogs while high beams which worked perfect as well.

You can change your DRL type as well (fogs as DRL or high or low or even the voltage of DRL). You can also disable bulb out lights if you want to switch some bulbs to LEDs.

I am using a cheap ELM327 (v1.5 i think) from amazon.

Good to know. Looks like it will also adjust for different tire sizes along with many other features.

tire size is not supported for the ram yet, but it is in the works from my understanding

I just changed my DRLs to fog lights from the factory high beams (canadian truck)

I enabled SRT pages, but they dont show up. From reading, once you enable if you have uconnect access they should show up after 10 mins. But there is no uconnect access in Canada so they might never show up for me.

I'm very interested also. Was going to spend a lot more on a Hypertech Speed Calibrator. Glad I waited...

How about a list of what's actually supported on the Ram if you get a chance. It would be very helpful.

Just got this back from CEO...

Hello Brian,

We will add this function soon. After calibrating the speedometer the calibrate of ABS module is needed, we are currently working on it.

This looks very interesting. Wonder if it will allow programming of some power folding mirrors, instead of going to the dealer?

I have emailed to find out what all this can do so far, as well as to find out if a double bypass is needed for the 2018 Ram. The 2018 Jeep GC & the 2018 Pacifica both require it.

It mentions the ability to add options to the vehicle. I think this was mentioed in relation to the Grand Cherokee.

I am adding the Trailer Brake Controller. It would be a cost savings to be able to add that option myself instead of paying the dealer for an hour to do 10 minutes of work.

Rock$tar,
Does this then allow installing Bi-Xenon HID projectors or LEDs without the need for Canbus decoders, resistors, etc? If so, this programmer is worth it times over and would save a lot of aggravation and wiring hassles. If not, I'm confused as to why one would need this program.

Could you elaborate or correct my thinking? Thanks, I appreciate your posting this thread.

I have purchased the software. Awaiting the double bypass. Once I have all the pieces needed, I will try to see what can be done. I will try adding the integrated trailer brake controller.

So likely be early next week by the time I have what I need.

All worth while if I can add the itbc. Everything after that is a bonus!

Agree....I would like to add the itbc, and power folding mirrors one day.

Today I also purchased the Appcar Diag FCA software and a scanner.

I Googled scanners and just got too much conflicting information as which would be best to buy.
Here's what the Appcar web site says:

Recommended interfaces:
OBDLink LX or MX - bluetooth
OBDLink SX - USB
Vgate iCar2 - bluetooth
ELM327 – based USB / Bluetooth – Chinese clones, many of them working properly – except “ver. 1.5a” .


I emailed Appcar and asked for their advice. Here's their reply:

OBDLink MX bluetooth would be the best.
This device will give you access to all modules in your 2016 Ram 1500.
2016 Ram Trucks have two separate CAN networks, such as Ford cars.
OBDLink SX and LX devices give you access to modules in one network only (CAN-C).

So I bit the bullet and bought the best, an OBDLink MX off Amazon to be delivered today.

Awesome. Keep up posted on your results. Really appreciate your time.
