Take it back and exchange it for the GT for Hemi Plus 40430. You have the wrong tuner for your model year truck.

Yup, what he said ^^^^^^^^^^^, and call BD when you get it to have them do a full update on it for you. Best when they do it.

Do a full update on it, you can also call BD to find out if it is compatible. There site indicates only up to 2010, I would confirm this and what the latest tune ver for it, or if it does, which one is best for your truck.

UPDATING THE GT

(DETAILED STEPS FOR WINDOWS)
8. NOTE: This step varies depending on how you have connected the Bully Dog to your computer.
If you have the Micro SD card connected to the computer:
- Disconnect it from the computer and put it in the GT.
- Then turn the GT on by connecting it to a computer or to a vehicle and turning the key to the Run position.
If you have the GT connected to the computer:
- Press the second key from the top on the left side to get out of USB mode.
OR
- Disconnect the GT from the computer, plug it in to your vehicle, and turn the
key to the Run position.
9. Go to the Main Menu on your GT.
10. Go to the bottom of the menu and choose Update GT Software.
If the Update GT Software option is not available on the Main Menu:
- Choose Update GT Firmware.
OR
- Scroll to the top and choose Change Vehicle, then select your vehicle from the list.
11. Confirm that you want to load the file.
12. Let the GT load the file and reboot. Do not disconnect it or turn it off during this part of the process.
The GT has now been updated!

I will bet an undisclosed amount that the 40415 tuner will not work on a 2012 Ram.

He lied.... The GT for Hemi Plus (40430) is the only Bully Dog that will work for a 2012.
