OK, for those who would like to see more about this program and just some of the functioned. I just took 70 screenshots and I still didn't capture all the functions.

Here is a link to a share drive that I created for AlphaOBD Help.

I have also downloaded my BCM current config. If you read through you can see how much is in there.
Are all of these functions currently supported for the Ram Ecodiesel?

Did a little BCM programming with the AppCar app, while I was upgrading my lighting.

Its there. Have not verified though. So many tire/wheel sizes to choose from. I captured some in the screen caps that I posted a link to above/.

All functions are listed, however it appears that there are many within the modules in the vehicle that are not used. if the vehicle has the function, it appears to be supported.

This application seems to be a pull from the module and then it triggers any change. The challenge is when there are multiple changes that need to be made to support one feature (e.g. 4 for the ITBC)

Does this list appear to be accurate for known working codes? https://docs.google.com/document/d/1cOPRgM7z957XJTg16NSjozfXNbrHdjkRQzCs2t0HYRc/edit

Please remember, I'm only sharing what I know so far. So far I'm thrilled.

That is a list of confirmed supported functions for the RAM that I referred to earlier. As far as I can see the EcoDiesel is no different that the rest when it comes to the BCM. There are references to Diesel features.

This looks pretty cool as well... if it can program RF keys for the truck thats pretty bad a$$... one of my keys is dying. Appcar does not do that.
I have been wondering that myself. It does speak on fobik programming. Not sure if it’s that simple.

The APPCAR developer just emailed me in regard to ITBC. they have added the CSM functions that are required to complete the install. If you have APPCAR, there is a database update.

It will work, however there are two buses on the RAM and the LX only accesses one of them. Therefor you will be limited in comparison to the MX. I have no idea what the limit is...

Thanks. Hopefully another member can elaborate, I'm not sure which bus the ITBC is on.

Appcar is $49USD locked to one VIN. AlphaOBD is $49USD locked to a PC or Google Play Account.

Interesting the way they charge you.
Appcar says 49.00 and charged me 49.00. AlpfaOBD says 49.00 but charges at the exchange rate, last week they charged me 59.05.
