Question To all the Dealership Mechanics.


This is the problem. I have been told by 1 dealer the no they can NOT change my speedometer with there computer.

Got off the phone with another one and they said YES they can. So I am putting it out there to all the handy Dealership Mechanics and others can they reset it or not. I have not been able to find any body else in my local 50 mile driving area to take it to

Thanks

Truck is a 2000 7.3 Excursion 4X4

Why do you want to reset it? did you upgrade to bigger tires or something?

The dealer can reset it for anything up to a 35 inch tire from what i have been told. Anything bigger than that they cant. Did you explain to the dealer why you wanted them to do it?

your truck has to be done with the NGS and the green card...that will mean something to any tech out there that has been around longer than a year or two. You cant do a 2000 7.3 with the IDS they probably tried to use...
