How many GDE tunes have been sold? Multiply that by $3075.00. That will be the motivation to try and weasel out. It is a guaranteed way to make some of the pain go away.
Except the fact that they have to follow the settlement agreement.How many GDE tunes have been sold? Multiply that by $3075.00. That will be the motivation to try and weasel out. It is a guaranteed way to make some of the pain go away.
But they do plug into the obd port for the inspection, so if it doesn't have the readiness flag or has any cel's on or pending, guess what.thats my plan, I think post settlement I'll elect for the off road tune, in NY this truck falls under the weight to not need to be exhaust tested if I have read everything correctly.
To read that section further, it states 1/2 credit for owner-altered vehicles that do not return for the AEM within the approved claim period. There is also a provision for FCA to send said owners a certain number of notices.
My initial thoughts were.The AEM will be done using the OBDII port. The GDE tune can not be done as it wipes the whole OE tune and reinstalls their tune. This would take to long using the OBDII port.
As for Overlook637's comments, The AEM update CAN NOT be installed on a deleted turck! So yep the dealer will be checking that the emissions system is 100% intack before they upload the AEM update (or you had better hope they do). If they didn't you would have a 7000+/- pound paper weight on your hands! Once the update is done there is no going back......well not from the dealer anyway. You would have to send the ECM out to GDE or maybe PPEI and you would not be getting any money from FCA/Ram. You might however get a letter from the EPA!
So here is your warning........IF YOU ARE DELETED OR EVEN PARTLY DELETED DO NOT TAKE YOUR TRUCK TO THE DEALER UNTIL YOU REINSTALL EVERY PART YOU TOOK OFF YOUR TRUCK!
That is what I plan on doing. Drive truck to dealer. Install factory ECM. Drive into bay. Flash ECM. Back out of bay and install tuned ECM back in. Drive home.My initial thoughts were.
But if you say they will check, I'll trust your word.
- Drive tuned and deleted truck to a friendly dealer
- in parking lot, near service bay, change the ECU
- ask for the truck to be updated without being driven
- get the AEM
- Change the ECU back to GDE and drive home
So did you tell the dealer it is tuned? Otherwise the dealer would have a hard time knowing the truck is tuned. Other than checking the ECM's serial number. Again the dealer can not see the actual code in the ECM. As far as deletes and tunes go, not sure what you're talking about. I reread the second sentence and even the second paragraph and don't see what you are talking about. A tuned truck can have the ECM over written, on a deleted truck if the AEM flash is installed will throw so many codes and may not even run.^^^ I think that my dealer knows my tune is there^^^ Not sure what you are talking about, but you seem to be mixing deletes and tunes....reference your second sentence. As far as connecting and disconnecting the ECM, I could care less what FCA or the dealer sees. My truck, my ECM. I could unplug it a 100 times if I wanted. Don't think the goobermint is gonna come git me.
What the rest of you do is up to you.
I bet we will find a lot of dealers willing to work with their customers, well the smaller ones anyway. I would stay away from the big boys myself. Everyone I have dealt with were 100% on the companies side and would report you in a New York minute!I talked with my dealer manager about the law suit Monday when I picked my truck up from installing lift kit. He knows my truck is fully deleted and I have no warrenty left.. That being said he was already over thinking the flash. He jumped right on the (I don't know what will happen when we start the truck again eliminating the tune). I told him, who said you have to start my truck? All you have to do is plug it in, do the update, leave it. We'll go back in and sign the paperwork, then I will go back out and put my tuned ecm back in and drive away.. He's like, yea I could probably do that... Idk if it's just a new england thing now but, common sense seems to be faint now. And everyone always trys stretching everything out with a fine tooth comb even if there's supporting documents.. (lawsuit rules listed).
