Where to purchase AlfaOBD Security cable

I've been acquiring everything needed to code stuff on my '19 2500 CTD but can't seem to find where to get the described security bypass cable. I picked up a Galaxy Tab A, a OBDlink MX+, Downloaded the alfaOBD app from the GooglePlay store. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Found one place that looked promising (koadtech) but I have not saw on alpha anything newer than 2017. Not sure if it works for newer or not tho. I am wondering with that cable if it would allow for using a monitor from a previous year for gauges?

From my experience, there is more 2019 support with appcardiagFCA beta.

I bought my jumper here: https://www.kaodtech.com/product-pag...-module-bypass

I have a broken 2019 truck.

I also have a working 2004 truck.

Have you tried the bypass cable yet? Did it work with your 19?

Yes it does.

You have to select the option for 2019 HD when ordering.

What color ends did yours come with? Mine has 2 white ends that I plugged into the same connector and I can not get anything to connect to truck. Did I recieve the wrong harness or does it plug into to separate plugs?

The plugs on the wires are both white. The wires should be labeled. Black/Green and White/Green. Those correspond to the blocks that they are to be plugged in to. Both are green but one has a black base and the other has a white base.

I couldn’t get it to work that way. I kept getting all kinds of errors for collision and blind spot warnings. I played around with plugging it in different configurations. Finally got it to work opposite of how it was labeled. AlfaOBD is not very user friendly though. They could learn a thing or two from the guys that make the BimmerCode app for BMWs.

Yea I got mine figured out. I overlooked the labels like an idiot and plugged them both into the same plug. Got it figured out now. Just have to figure out how to change tire pressure thresholds. Changed tired size for speed to be correct.

What is this used for? I know accessing modules to add things, but what things? Can I change my tire size so that 77 on the dash is not actually 80mph with my new tires?
