JR67 vin locked.....

Recommended Posts

As you can see.... I'm new. And given the title of this thread, in a pickle.

 

My '11 3500 Outdoorsman is now out of it's extended warranty and I've been looking at the Smarty since, oh, sometime in June 2011, 2 months after I bought the truck knowing I'd be here eventually.

 

I wasn't going to buy one right now but came across one on the Maine Turbo Diesel FB page and local enough to me. The seller was the friend of the owner who had it in his 2010 that was wrecked (he's fine). He wasn't sure if it was VIN unlocked which means it wasn't VIN unlocked but naive me....

 

Hooking it up to my truck yielded Unknown Software. Updated the unit from 6.02 to 6.05 via the MADS website. Connected again showed the dreaded VIN Locked.

 

The s/n on the unit is SJ67P1103593.

 

So.... What's next?

I would recommend, do not buy a vin-locked unit.

 

Thank you!

Thanks Brian, had I known that before hand, I would not have done so. But I do own it now.

 

Do I have any other options?

It can be done. However steps to be taken and hurdles to jump thru.

 

I'll send you a pm.
