hi and welcome to Just answer!

the truck won't go into drive or sets "autopark" because the door is open, which deploys the power boards, if the running boards malfunction they will stay either deployed or stowed and still allow the vehicle to be operated normally IF the malfunction is due to a faulty door latch or sensor sending the vehicles computers false information making it think the doors are open it will set auto park and need to be towed.

however there have been very few if any problems with either the door latches or the power side steps.

to recalibrate the speedometer you will need an aftermarket speedometer calibration programmer OR purchase a special "service contract" at the dealer.

once the contract is purchased the dealer will input the new tire diameter online and regester it with the factory then download the new calibration into your truck

price varies by dealer
