ok i bought a used spartan tuner and i plugged it in just so i can see the beauty and start daydreaming of whats it like. lol
when i plugged it in it had all the tunes on there (wich i thought i had to get a new license) is it ok to load up those tunes or what??
also how do i load my stock tune onto the programmer or do u think the other guys stock tune will work??

thank you!!

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.
