Customer Question
I am Lionel from...

I am Lionel from France. I own a 2006 Dodge Magnum SXT and I changed the clusters for a R/T one and add the steering wheel switches with harness to make the EVIC fonctional. But that's not. I know i need to program the FCM, but I can't. There is no Mopar dealer anymore in France. My question is: can I replace the SXT FCM for a R/T FCM to have it programed for a fonctional EVIC ? Thanks

I have a starscan, but the EVIC program seems not to be in. I also have auto enginuity software.
I have installed the compass module and it is working, because the program is in the scantools I have. But nothing to make the steering whell switches working.
Thanks

That is not going to work all of the module will need to be programmed with the same VIN and you would have to replace ever module on the car as well as the engine computer and would need to use a RT vin to make it work.

A few years ago, I had to change the engine computer module. I changed the VIN with the starscan, but I didn't have to change all the other module. The engine computeur module was the same (for 3.6L).
I just asked myself if I can change only the front control module for a R/T one to have the EVIC already programmed.
So if you say that is not possible. I have no solution, because I can't program or find someone in France to program it to make the EVIC and steering wheel switches working.
Where could I find someone who could program the FCM to activate this EVIC option?

I don't know where you would need to go to have the programming done . If you install one with the vin already programmed it is going to have a vin conflict and may have many things that don't work

Ok, but do you know if it is possible to change the VIN of this module with a starscan, to match my car VIN, and be sure to keep the programs already inside to make the EVIC and steering wheel switches working?
If it is possible to do that, I just have to find a module from a R/T and change the VIN.
Dodge Mechanic: moparfl, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

No you can't change it once it's been entered.
