My son's friend has a 2004 Ram 2500 Diesel. My son just bought a 2005 Ram 2500 Diesel. The friend is trying to sell my son a U7130 Predator so he connected it to my son's truck and force flashed his 2004 stock program to my son's 2005 truck. Now my son's truck will not run. Is there any way to reflash my son's truck back to the correct VIN and year?

Likely going to need to get it to a dealership.

Someone had to try pretty hard to get it to do this...

I took it to the dealership and they said that they could only flash back to the VIN that is in the computer, which is the VIN of the friend 2004 truck.

Is there not a way to use the Predator to change the VIN back to the original VIN?

If needed, you can send the tool and PCM here for us to attempt to recover it.

Fill out the return form on our site under support and we'll email you details to send it in.
Be sure to provide the correct VIN of the vehicle that needs to go back in the PCM.

Thanks
