Customer Question

I AM INTERESTED IN KNOWING IF A REGULAR CHEVROLET DEALER CAN TAKE A BLANK TRANSMISSION COMPUTER ( PROVIDED BY ALLISON TRANSMISSIONS), DUE TO LOCAL DEALER HAS SAID ITS STILL ON BACK ORDER AFTER 2 WEEKS.WE HAD ORDERED THE TCM FROM CONTE CHEVROLET (OUR LOCALDEALER). WE ARE AN ALLISON FACTORY AUTHORIZED DEALER, BUT OUR SOFTWARE CAN'T DO A CHEVY ALLISON COMPUTER, EVEN THOUGH THIS HAS AN ALLISON CIN# ***** IS CALLED BY ALLISON A 4TH GENERATION TCM. IT IS EXACTLY THE SAME " BLACK BOX" AS THE ORIGINAL CHEVY TCM

The Chevy dealer can take a blank TCM and put the vehicles factory information back into it using the VIN number. I know that works with what you can buy at the dealer. I personally have never seen the dealer try to upload the info from one from Allison. Although I do agree they probably are exactly the same module with different software installed.
