Default Help - Sales Codes and Computer update

I added the 32 gallon tank, heated/vented seats, and heated steering wheel to my 2013 Sport. I found an amazing deal on new seats and set out a couple of months ago to do the swap.

Did a ton of research on switches, wiring diagrams, clockspring, etc.

So it's all together and everything works EXCEPT for the radio display and the calculations on the 32 fuel. The first coordination with the dealer was great - they had the district manager add the sales codes and we updated the computer - fuel calculations were corrected and the heated seats and steering wheel option were now displayed in the "controls" section of the radio.

I noticed the Vented seat options were not being displayed and the VIN lookup showed they had forgotten to add that sales code. Sales code added, go to update the computer and now everything is back to original factory setup. Again, everything works BUT the controls do not display anything in the radio and the calculation for the fuel is back to the 26 gallon settings.

We've looked at the information against the VIN and it all looks correct, but for some reason those sales codes are no longer updating to the computer on the truck.

Have any of your techs encountered this. I can share my VIN via PM.

The fuel calculation is one I'd really like to fix and the controls are a happy to glad as the switches all work.

To me, it almost sounds like there's a conflicting sales code now and the update really doesn't push. I'm guessing of course and any assistance would be appreciated.

Flashing can be tricky. It may come down to the order of operations. When you say "updated the computer" are you talking about flashing the truck or the new Uconnect update? Have they tried reversing the order of adding sales codes? Did they add the sales codes at the same time?

It's not uConnect updates, it's actually downloading of the VIN based settings and reflashing the computer.

All of the codes, less the vented seats, were added at one time at the district level. Then a week later, the missing vented seats code was added. If I go to the owners website, all of my options are now listed as dealer installed items.

The dealership can only change certain codes, like adding or removing the backup camera, but items like the 32 gallon tank, seats, etc., are all added at the district level so the dealership cannot change them.

I'm hoping a tech on here could compare my VIN to another sport truck with the same setup and see if certain codes are creating a conflict.

Wow, kind of surprised that no one has chimed in.

Question

Well Zixxer, I can't really help you out but, I would love to hear about how you did the swap.

I would like to add the heated seats and steering wheel to my SLT.

Do you have a write up or links to your install ( or anybody else's ) that you can share?

Thanks.
