bunky is on a distinguished road
Default Programmers locked??

I know this may sound stupid but if I buy a programmer from ebay or something and it is used will it need to be unlocked? What is "Unlocked" If I use it on my truck can I use it on other trucks like mine or do I need to get a download or something from the manufacture. Is it a one time use? for example; If I program for my truck can I program another truck or must I deprogram my truck and reload OEM specs prior to programming another. I have other programs that are loaded on my computer that are NOT truck related. I can download up to 2 times but everytime I download after the origional 2 times I must download at least 1 program back onto the disc before I can download to another computer. Thanks Ed

When you program a tune to the truck...it becomes locked So you can't use it on thirty nine trucks at once. If the previous owner doesn't flash the truck back to stock, you won't be able to use it.

Thanks that is what I was thinking but not sure. Now the other question that I have is if the previous owner doesn't set his truck back to stock what needs to be done to get it unlocked. And how much does it cost. Thanks

I think it is about 200 bucks, better off buying a new one. If its not unlocked you're pretty much screwed
