I would like to start out by saying @DeereGuy183
I used the AE to add a few options and it worked perfectly fine, ie
heated/ventilated seat soft button
heated steering wheel soft button
SRT start up page
fogs on with high beams
- and it worked just fine.
The problem I ran into is when I tried to add the "performance/offroad pages", and a few other random options. This really opened up a worm whole in my truck, I started having numerous problems - remote start stopped working, abs, air bag lights came on.
Long story short a trip to the dealer to have them flash the BCM wasn't too bad. It is marked as a .2 hour job and cost around 20$, "when you're out of warranty that is".
Overall IMO I feel that once we start adding the very random options our trucks weren't designed to have, is where we run into problems.
Either way I would like to not scare people away and keep this thread moving in a good direction so we can help each other help one another.
