In this video I follow up on a previous diagnose we had on a 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 where I made the call on the ECM: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIWJvZG76dI&t Now it's time to install the used ECM and make all of the other modules shake hands and play nice with it. -Enjoy!

    Every dodge that I have done, I use my Autel im608 to change vin, never needed to use the immobilizer function yet once the vin is changed.

    Makes sense to a retired master mechanic.

    I don't get it Shop A can't figure out problem they call you.. you work on the vehicle find said problem. fix vehicle now they're going to come back and finish taping up the wires and charge the customer accordingly?first of all I having to go through all the diagnostics of finding the problem I don't want somebody else messing with the wires and shorting it back out again… Second of all now isn't it your problem since they couldn't figure it out or is this just the neighborly thing to do is to help out?

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Bambenek says:

    Are you fixing a computer or a car? Dang you need to wear lots of hats to fix today's vehicles. The days of the shade tree mechanic are long gone.

    I would love to see a how to on the otc brake-out box and how it works and how to use it. Thanks

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Robertson says:

    Do you ever get a bad salvage ECM?

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars homero velazquez says:

    Couldn't u just disconnect the skim sensor while programing Vin and after program, plug it bak in?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Baker says:

    Another ECM to send to Big Clive!

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marwan Mohamed says:

    watching this video gave me severe headache..a maze of diagnosis.. believe me Eric O if you can do it, I can't do it.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LowBuckPC says:

    Just a quick question. 2005 Hemi Ram 2500, no power in open loop. If you try to take off while cold in open loop it stutters and sputters. It runs fine in closed loop and no money light no codes. Any ideas?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars lasegundaenmienda gmail says:

    Thanks for thecfollow up

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tim Burke says:

    Caution third

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Nicholson says:

    Could the OTC Scan tool been used to do the programming because it comes with the pass through device? Basically could it have been used from start to finish with the subscription?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 38911bytefree says:

    The highest possible quality in autodiagnstic and autorepairs from SMA with no expense on tools to get the job done. No matter if it was a rodent fest truck. Awsome material as usual. Would love to see more of this porpietary tools and SW in action for in deep service.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Deathknell says:

    Have you tried Autel j2534 passthrough device?

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jerkus freak says:

    most of the time it will stays.. just do it twice until the security light comes off and put the odometer manually … no restore configuration needed

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Han Skinslo says:

    2010 Ram with bad computer issues….. another reason I'm glad I don't own a Fiat/Chrysler product.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brandon says:

    I enjoyed this vid quite a bit. "Enhance, enhance" hahaha. Love it. I could not wait til you remove the back seat. I kept thinking, it's under the carpet somewhere, rip the seat out. Glad you didnt have to remove the seat though. Great stuff, sir.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Beeunas says:

    Hi, Pack Rats chewed through wires on one injector and shorted on my Wife's 2010 Infiniti EX35 which blew the transistor. I opened the ECM and could see the burned transistor, but could not find a one-off matching replacement, but did find a used 2010 EX35 ECM on eBay for $150 and lifted one of the transistors as a replacement, and it worked.
    Cheers,
    Mark

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Oaks says:

    I love watching your videos. Your a hoot to watch. But…. I do not envy the amount of rust and crap you have to deal with. I have a dodge truck that has 226000 miles and is 20 years old and doesnt have 15% of the rust you have on a vehicle with 50000 miles on it. Thanks for all the great content keep it coming.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lee Dress says:

    wrong size socket… Drink! forgot to turn on camera…. Drink! Broken Fastener…. DRINK! LOL

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Folsom says:

    fyi, you were surprised no update was avialable. It may have already been done and had the correct firmware version?

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars irgski says:

    So, my question is, did you charge for a new ecm?

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Super Fast says:

    you can do it! I can't but appreciate operators who can. nice NICE

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Smitty Smithsonite says:

    After Christmas, that J-box is on my loooooong list of tools I need to buy. A scope is #1 on the list.

    Nice couple vids on this one! I'll probably be referencing alot of your vids when I get stuck … "WHY won't this list populate???" 😂

    Not much wrenching going on at the beginning of this week. Got to bring the little kittens to the vet, then haul a Ford 2N plow setup waaaaaay up near the Canadian border in NH. I'll be sure to let you all know if the Silverado decides to crap out on this trip. I always wonder which trip is gonna be the one I lose a BIG PILE of cash on. She's got almost 95k miles on her – close to the end of the road for that 5.3! 🤯 GM sure knows how to keep a tech busy …

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J S says:

    As soon as you entered the PIN for the new ECM. Your phone rang; we all know it was Chrysler’s Men in Black on the other end.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donnie Robertson says:

    Great job A+ like always

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars colin palmer says:

    thanks Eric….you're definitely wrong..I could NOT do it.Great video.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stan Patterson says:

    Lately the level of "Whoa!" 's had dropped off noticeably.    I daresay it's becoming "whoafully inadequate"  Lol…   Of course, this is merely jest.  Everyone appreciates a tech/mech with a steady hand, and a steadicam.

    Eric-O be the man. Great job mate.
