All major chrysler electrical components are set to the vehicle VIN number at the factory and will not work in any other vehicle. If you bought a new part it needs to be set to your VIN number before it will work.
Unfortunately, new generation cars and trucks are very specific about everything. From how the engine burns gas to air on your tires... Your ECU has to be reprogrammed to your vehicle specifics to include vin number, air bags, abs, mileage, etc... Good luck!
replacing the ecu on most vehicles will need coding
if its qa chipped key definitely will need coding again so wont start only swing
if its a open box ecu with same ecu no then it should start first time
Good evening Ezrider, I am not sure what you are referring to as BCM. If you mean the general module or lamp module, then yes it needs to be coded to your vehicle. If you are having coding performed, make sure and ask if what options you can choose from..ie.. daytime running lights, alarm acknowledgement, car memory, seat memory etc. Many of my customers are not even aware of the many optional features their car has, and just need to be activated via coding.
hey hassa, if you swapped an ABS control unit from another vehicle, it needs to be coded to your vehicle. If your vehicle does not recognize the replacement vin, it will set a fault. also, make sure to have the ABS sensors calibrated after the control unit is coded. most dealers charge about 1hr labor to perform coding and sensor calibration.
they are saying that they can not discern the exact radio by the vin, and want to remove it to get its serial # and then access code......there is another vin ..body/paint /accessories codes that they could use (without removing radio) IMO..usually found in glove box or drivers door jam with the numbers they need....try calling another dealer and getting a parts guy to work with you to guide you to the numbers he needs...good luck
