Default T-1000 Unmarried?

I'm buying a used T-1000 I found for sale, and want to make sure that it isn't paired to anything before handing over the cash.

What's the easiest way to tell if it is currently paired to a vehicle?

Get the unti's serial number and contact DiabloSport at 1-800 531 5484 prior to purchasing.

Plug the unit into an OBD II port in a vehicle, go to options, go to show information and see if there is a VIN assigned to the unit.

Excellent thanks! I'll just plug it into the truck and check the options. Have you used that method?

That's all good but the damage is done once the unit is purchased/delivered and you find out that it's VIN locked to another vehicle.

I've never had to do that, but there shouldn't be a VIN on the unit if it is divorced.

I'm just assuming OP was checking it out before money changed hands. Obviously, it wouldn't be a good idea otherwise.

Yah you guys are correct, it's a local deal. I'll just make sure to plug it in and test it out first.

Thanks for the info!
