There are a few circumstances when you will need to relearn your Vehicle Anti-Theft System (VATS) relearn. This process is also known as resetting your Passlock or Passkey VATS system. While the Passlock and Passkey systems are slightly different than VATS the trouble shooting them is fairly similar. We suggest doing your research or have your truck professionally diagnosed prior to you begin this process.
Possible trouble codes
This "How To" article will walk you through installing the EFILive CSP Switch on your 2006 - 2009 Cummins powered Ram 2500 or 3500 pickup truck.

This article will walk you through the procedure required to clear DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) with your EFILive AutoCal or SPADE programming tool.
Trucks that this procedure is applicable for:

What is "Cost Per Horsepower"?
Cost Per Horsepower is a simple way to display and measure the cost-effectiveness of automotive performance upgrades.
In practice, this term is probably more often used to prove someone has wasted money on a specific upgrade or the purchase of an entire vehicle. For the purpose of this article, we are going to assume the vehicle in question is either a Duramax, Cummins, or Power Stroke diesel truck.
520 RWHP TUNE ONLY LML DURAMAX:
The 2011 - 2016 LML Duramax came rated at 395 horsepower and 765 ft/lbs of torque. That seemed like an amazing amount of power when this model was first released but these days it is dwarfed by the available power of brand new trucks.
Furthermore, that whopping 395 HP is a peak power rating, meaning that you probably won't produce that much power during normal operations. In fact, many owners complain that the power delivery of the stock tune is too soft. This is why custom tuning is so important for the LML Duramax.
Here are some of the things tuning your LML can help with:
The 6.7L Ford in its factory trim represents a significant improvement in technology over the previous generations of the Powerstroke. Coupled with the 6R140 transmission, this power train a lot of offer in reliability, drive-ability and performance. Over the past year, we at CPS have worked with our customers and in-house on our own test trucks to develop and test tuning for this platform. After hundreds of revisions, we're happy to announce we have a product that significantly outperforms the factory 6.7L/6R140 calibration in power and drive-ability, while maintaining factory operation and service intervals of the emissions control system.
Ever wonder what you need to push your stock truck to its limit? We know the answer, and we created this article for you. For 600-640 RWHP you will need to keep in mind all the supporting modifications you need to maintain reliability.
Custom tuning is going to ask your truck to perform at a higher level. The same goes for upgrading your turbo, transmission, fuel system or any other performance orientate component. The best way to maintain a moderate level of reliability while upgrading is to address these issues once and do it right!
Here is the list of what you need to make a reliable 600+ RWHP LML with a DPF still on it:

LML SPADE & Smart EGT Control:
Exhaust Gas Temperatures (EGTs) give you an insight as to how much stress you are putting your engine under. It is the most accurate way to monitor if your current activity is safe for the engine.
In a factory tuned truck high EGTs would most commonly be a sign of a physical problem like a boost leak. However, a tuner added to an aggressive driver could result in EGTs beyond the desired limit.
Most examples of this also include a mismatch of your tune level and truck operation. Such as the guy towing in his race tune.
The LML SPADE by DuramaxTuner.com now includes a Smart EGT Control feature.
