i got my TNT/R from bob. i returned my truck to stock before downloading the TNT/R...was this a mistake? Smarty came on said my name 1= connect truck it said 2=adjust options. i hit the 1 button and it said warning vin locked. i hit 2 to adjust options...that went perfect,and then it said wait saving options... i think? So....is my truck ready to drive or do i have to download a tune to get the TNT/R tune!where if i did...mess up! could someone shine the light in my direction so i can think what a bonehead for not doing that right!!:rof

plug the smarty into your truck and at the update screen press the #9 key and compare that number to your actual vin number

ok now try this and use the #0 key to stop the scrolling....

Turn the key on without starting

Hold down the #5 key and then plug smarty in

Once smarty is powered up, release the #5 key

Wait for the update screen


And press the #1 key twice

Write down the numbers and letters

I have heard before that this is a common problem w/the 03s. basically the problem is that DODGE leaves out the # in the vin program. Hope you get the problem resolved. :thumbsup
