Resetting speedometer with Smarty?

Recommended Posts

Hey gang,Got a question for you. A friend of mine has a Smarty and was going to reset my speedo. Any way he tried it on his without the Smarty tune loaded on and it didn't work he said. Him and I were under the impression that he could reset mine and have the tune on his??:shrug: Does anyone have some experience with this??:shrug:Thanks,Winslow

Nope he has to reset to stock to be able to work on your truck...Once a vehicle is load with a tune then it VIN locked to that vehicle. So he has to reset to stock first then he can work on your truck set the speedo then it should return to his truck...

Well he said he reset his to stock before trying to reset the speedo on his without the tune. At least that's what I understood from what he said. But from what you are saying is that he has to set his to stock, recal my speedo, then he can load the tune back on his?:shrug:

Correct...1. Reset his truck to stock to release the VIN lock of the Smarty.2. Calibrate your speedometer.3. Reset his previous tune.As long as the Smarty has a recorded VIN number in the programmer (a loaded tune) it will not operate on any other truck till you reset back to stock.If it still doesn't work contact Bob Wagner...:thumbup2:

So what you're saying is I won't be able to re-calibrate the speedometer without the Smarty tune?:shrug:

... or go to the dealer and have it flashed.

Yeah I might have to do that. I was told TS or BD makes a speedometer calibrater, I just haven't checked into yet.... I just don't want to spend a lot of money on it!:broke:
