Does the replacement unit come pre- programmed? I have been told to make sure if not I would have to find someone who could do it or dealer. Thank you Dan

The unit should just be a plug and play application, but a lot of Dodge applications will require a relearn process.

I dont know if its pre-programmed. I put it on and it worked, but had to take to mechanic because squirrels chewed the wires.
Margaret B July 17, 2018
Hey Dan, I was able to simply take out the old one and put in the new with no programing needed. Just be sure the gasket goes in correctly (is hard to mess it up), and snug it into place. Worked right off the bat.
