Question
Programming
2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie 5.7L (T EZH) 5-spd (545RFE)
Mismatch Vin

I received a call on this vehicle with a used win module installed. It looks like the locksmith got the used part to work,vehicle runs. Abs light is on with the used win modules vin.

Anyone know of a tool that will do this? Can the same tool correct the vin? The truck is at a second customers shop, I saw the vehicle at another shop and spoke to the owner who stated she would call the locksmith. I have not touched it.

VIN:1D7RV1CT6AS120109

What’s the year make and model 

if it’s a chrysler you can change the vin thru the toolbox application 

but a Ford or Chevy you have to do a reprogramming with a j2534 interfa module in order to change the vin number

You can change the PCM VIN Toolbox3 not the WIM module VIN as far as I know. May be able to reprogram WIM module to correct VIN if you know the new SKIM code that accompanies the used WIM. I'm just theorizing but may be better off getting a new WIM.

You have a couple choices you can use the WITECH2 and do a system configuration restore I assume this is a dodge as there is no mention of vehicle and may want to put that in your post please. Also I know Autel has been adding to theres but I can't say it works as I have not used it yet or if its even a option for this particular vehicle as I dont know the year or make. By the sounds of it setup just wasnt completed and needs to be.

2013 Dodge Ram. I put that in the header,it did not stay put. In the past configuration has not fixed the vin in used abs modules,don’t know if it is a used prior install. Never seen anyone get a used win module to work,without used ecm. The second shop stated win module ,abs module same vin. All others vehicle vin.

The best tool for manipulating the WIN/SKIM/SKREEM module is the DMAX. You can read the SKIM code, Add Keys, Erase Keys, Change VIN, Change Country Code, Change SKIM code. It is only effective with static SKIM codes. It does not work with the new Chrysler vehicles with rolling codes. I have used the ABRITES tool and MVP tool for SKIM but they basically only read the SKIM number, no manipulation. I just used it on a 2013 Jeep Wrangler yesterday. I have not tried the WiTech2 with a used Chrysler immobilizer. I had been told it does not work so I have always used the DMAX. I will have to try that next time.

I had a recent case where the tech had the WCM rebuilt. The 10 day turn around is the issue there. I wonder what all they do to "rebuild" them?

Ok so I talked to the tech today. The pcm and win module had the same vin,so the owner gave me wrong info. She stated she picked up the used win, but not a pcm. I asked twice. The tech put a new win module and key after correcting the vin in pcm. The wrong vin in abs switched to the correct vin of vehicle. I am sure he did not do a vehicle configuration. Not sure I got correct info on anything. My Head Hurts.

Chrysler doesn't support any used module replacements on 2010 and newer model year vehicles. They won't allow you to overwrite the VIN in the used module, you'll have to replace it with a new module and program the blank module to the vehicle and write the correct VIN into it. There's no way to overwrite the VIN in a used module on 2010 and newer chrysler vehicles. I hope this helps.

Just did a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and a 2012 Chrsler 200 in the past month. Used PCM replacements both with drewtech passthru worked perfectly.

Chrysler may not support it but the DMAX does on most Chrysler vehicles to 2012 and by doing some play with the software even newer. It does allow changing the VIN in the WCM.
