I had the same problem with my dealer on the daytime driving lights. I have driven dodge pickups that were part of a fleet that had the lights activated. I also know that all vehicles sold in Canada must have daytime driving lights. I take my 2009 into the dealer and ask them to activate the lights and they tell me it cant be done as the truck was not built to enable daytime driving lights. Go figure.

The first time I went to the dealer to have the code added, they couldn't. They requested help form Dodge (I'm thinking that STAR that you mentioned). At first they were helpful, but the dealer tech then said they turned and read him the riot act about changing the trucks configuration. I'm sure it has to do with liabilities. I'm just glad that the heated and cooled functions work on my seats, even without the leds. I was thinking of building an led driver circuit and adding some small leds for indication, but I never got around to it.

I would have a real problem with STAR if they pulled that with me because the truck can be built with that configuration. It's not like you're trying to shoehorn a 6.7 CTD into a 1500 chassis.

They did not give a reason why. I remember years ago heated seats caused burns to passengers in some vehicles (that's why most do not get that hot anymore, just lukewarm). My guess would be liabilities somehow. I'm just glad that they worked for me.
