Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

We(dealership only charge 1 hour labor which is around 100.00 to reconfigure the TIPM and program modules. The only way to reconfigure the TIPM and program your vehicle options is with a WiTech scantool..

If you need anymore assistance feel free to shoot me a reply and don't forget to RATE before leaving the site so I get credit for helping you today..

Have a great day,

Brad

My Answer was:

We(dealership) only charge 1 hour labor which is around 100.00 to reconfigure the TIPM and program modules. The only way to reconfigure the TIPM and program your vehicle options is with a WiTech scantool, you can not do this without a WiTech scantool..

I hope this helps and thank you for the positive rating,

what exactly do I say to the dealer because when I say " I need my Vehicle Configuration Re downloaded into my car" they say what you mean by that
Expert:  -Brad- replied 5 months ago.

All you will need to do is tell them you have added a vehicle option to the VIN number and you will need the TIPM reconfigured. We will connect the Witech and reconfigure the TIPM which will download the vehicle options from Chrysler to the TIPM..

If you need anymore assistance feel free to reply and don't forget the RATING so I'm credited before leaving the site!!

Hello?

Expert:  -Brad- replied 5 months ago.

You have asked 6 questions and you have not rated any of them which means none of the experts have been rated.. You asked a question and I answered you correctly so if you don't leave a rating then if you ask another question it will be closed and sent to customer service.. This is not a free service and we aren't credited unles you leave a rating.

Expert:  -Brad- replied 5 months ago.

Is there a reason you haven't rated yet?

Expert:  -Brad- replied 5 months ago.

You have 6 open question and you have not rated any of them so me nor the rest of the experts has been credited and this is not a free site.

Expert:  -Brad- replied 5 months ago.

It's been a few weeks and you still have not gave me credit for helping you... And after looking you have not rated any of the questions you have asked.
