12 K Mile warranty Or 12 Months!

Alright its been about 5k Mile since I had my heads done and put back together they gave me a 12k mile warranty or 12 months which ever comes 1st I'v had the truck out may be a month or so it cost about $4,500 for all the repair's... So anyways i was talking with my buddy that has a 03 dodge that he pulled his fuses for his speed odometer out he was right @ 90k miles he lost his A/C and all his Gauge's "RPM,SPEED,OIL,DIESEL,BATT" But my question is if i pull mine out will they know I did? or mess up anything? Its #45 on the fuse box I pulled mine out yesterday drove down the block lost all my gauges too but A/C works fine ..truck still run's right and the Odometer stayed the same I have a GPS it tells me how fast I'm going, and my overhead MPG,Temp out side works fine. I'm just worried about the truck breaking down again and having to pay another $4,500. since I don't have any other warranty.

I understand this is considered breaking the law and I never plan on selling my truck but should i just suck it up and go on down the road......

you probably will get a loss of communication code stored in the computer and when you plug it back in it will most likely stay in for a while as a history code but they may not even think to check that

No i don't see it as fraud I'm just not telling the whole truth but if its going to mess up anything on the truck like the computer or any kinda sensor or what have you then no.

Yeah i'm sure it might come back with a code for it but I wonder if there is like 2 odometer like one that reads on the console and one in the computer that runs off some other fuse or the battery I would think you could just clear the codes @ autozone or the with the sct

not sure about if the computer will still read but if it dose then whenever you put the fuse back in then the miles will be changed on the odometer. and yea you could clear the code at autozone or with your sct but the code will probably be in other modules that you cant access with out a ford scanner. and if so then they might be able to look at freeze frame and look at the miles since code has set and depending on the tech wether he catches on to it or not.

pretty much when it comes down to it i think you will have a 50 50 shot of it working or not. its your call i think.
