    I selling my 2003 4.7 Ram (I replaced with a 2015 Hemi 4x4). It had a Superchips 3865 tune installed on it for like 10 years and it was great. Anyways, I'm going to put the truck up for sale in a few weeks. I broke out the 3865 and flashed the truck back to stock.

    Am I fine to sell the 3865 on Ebay now? It won't remain VIN locked to my old truck, will it? The new owner should just be able to plug it in and it lock to his VIN number, correct?

    If you returned the truck back to stock then when you plug it back in again it show "this tuner has not been used" or should show "stock" under settings. If it shows one or both of those things then yes you are ready to sell it on Bay as UNLOCKED,NOT VIN LOCKED,etc. I would expect its worth around $100 give or take as that model came out probably close to ten years ago right.

    You will most likely have to get SuperChips to reprogram that tuner to unlock it. I know on my SuperChips CORTEX Tuner, when I return my truck to its stock tune, it is still VIN locked to my truck. I would have to get SuperChips to unlock my tuner. I wish you the best of luck with your tuner.

    You may be able to get them to unlock it for you for free. They did for me all i said was that I dont know what happened and its saying this error code and they unlocked it for me

    You were lucky to get SuperChips to unlock your tuner without charges. IMG_0704.JPG

    I had mine locked because the dealer flashed over it when it went in for warranty work, I called an they took care of it with not much hassle. Still have it unlocked ready to go if anyone is looking for one

    Tuner only worth $100 and you might have to pay to have it unlocked?

    Guess I don't feel too bad having misplaced my tuner when I moved. Still on the truck.
