I am no professional but I believe they are VINspecific. If you try to load you are probably asking for trouble.

Try to load the tune and see what what error code it shows. Should show a 003 or something like that wrong vehicle. You will need to contact spartan directly pay them a re license fee. You will need the name of the person you bought the tuner from. They will call them to make sure its not a stolen unit. Also while you have the unit plugged in go through the menu and to the info screen where you would load a new license and write down the vin of the last vehicle it was on. That will save you some trouble in the long wrong.
