    Default $0340 remote flashing 5.9 via autocal... FYI

    Had a customer that was adamant that he get his original file modified instead of one of mine, I read his file out at TS using my V2, scripted over it, loaded it onto an AutoCal and mailed it off. Once he got the autocal it would get nearly all the way through the write process and error out with a $0340 error which is "Download not accepted". I thought maybe I goobered up the setup on the autocal so I walked him thru loading it with the V8 software - same result.

    We went round & round ensuring things were up to date, correct files... etc

    Turns out his file wasn't a clean base file (previous programmer) - I changed the vin in the original file that I made the script from to script over his which was a true clean chrysler base file and it flashed right in no problems.

    For future reference...

    I know it's specifically BullyDog programmers that cause that error. Yet another one that does not return to true stock, I should definitely update the quick start guide for that error.

    In fact it actually was a bullydog programmer he had on there. Also I might add, after the attempted flash, his truck was dead in the water until we got him resolved with the new base file...

    I have a customer just threw this code today, i can 100% guarantee his file is a clean file as it is the only file i use on the 5.9 w/ 48re... I just got off the phone with him and he is pulling his batter cables for a few mins. He says he has flashed it multiple times with no issues before... but today it has flared up.
