        adding fog lights or tow mirrors, changing tire size or TPMS pressure limits. There is a setting in there that deals with what type of fabric your seats are, and what type of steering wheel you have.

        Setting these to "Leather" the body computer will then give those items more "power" because the leather based ones need more heat than the non leather ones. The actual setting in Alfa for changing just about anything can be found by doing some research here on the ramforum.

        So, to change the body computer settings you need 1) OBDLink MX 2) An Android Device 3) A copy of AlfaOBD which you can buy on Google's play store 4) If you are running a 2018 or newer truck, then you need a security bypass cable as FCA added encryption to the OBD Port in 2018 and newer Rams. That cable can be bought from vendors here and on eBay.

      Did you ever fix the immobilizer issue? I have the same problem.

        Karma, We had to trailer the truck over to the dealer and have the truck flashed with the BCM/RFHub that we had put in, then the immobilizer issue went away. It's the only thing that worked, nothing else I tried would do it. But then again Alfa could not successfully change the VIN numbers in the BCM and RFHub at the time. Perhaps it can now?
